Besides Monty?? No....last co-driver was my brother and after he was put on another truck and I went solo, I don't think I could run with a co-driver.

All that chaining (and UN) yourself.. Good on YOU m'lady. Didn't know if you ended up getting a 'co' again, or not.

Agreed, Monty's good enough~!!! <<< But for chaining, I bet. . . LoL !

Hugs & prayers & safe wishes, m'lady!!

Are 'truck' GPS accurate enough to drive by looking at the display? Or what tools might help the big rigs stay in the lane?

Asking bc (some time ago) I was on 64 from charlottesville to Richmond, midnight, snowing hard, no other vehicles, 2+" covering with no lines visible. I relied a lot on my car gps, and kept it under 60 and stayed in 2 wheel drive. 3 lanes and thought I was in the middle lane.

Suddenly a truck blasted passed me, 75+mph like he could see the road clearly. He came up on me so quickly, I had no time to slow, or move over. Very impressive!

3 lanes I-64 from C'Ville to Richmond? Where is this? Only place I can think of is just before Chesterfield, so basically Richmond.

Perhaps was not 3 lanes, from my headlights everything was white and snowing hard. Maybe a shoulder was my perceived 3rd lane. Not at all familiar, may have traveled that stretch twice in my life.

TWIC:

Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

OWI:

Operating While Intoxicated
