I don't call friendly conversation "trolling". I haven't hurt folks' feeling here have I? It's been about two months since I made my last thread here.

Anyway, nobody answered my question about the driving conditions in Texas. Oh, by the way, I'm watching a 1979 truck-theme made-for-TV film called Willa on YouTube, John Amos. It's actually making women drivers look totally incompetent but it's pure cheesy humor. I like to see how trucking is done in video demonstrations not just reading pages of text. This forum needs a little light humor.

Anyway, please be safe in this nasty cold weather and slow down!

I do wish Hollywood would have made a trucking film in a serious nature though. Hollywood unfortunately often makes drivers look like cowboys and clowns. I'm glad they also made some drivers look like conscientious hard-workers who stand up for what is right too.

I just grabbed 'one' video; she has many. Perfect female view of the industry.

Also, you could check out Nic & Carla on Y/T. Teaming females ~!!

Thanks. I have subscribed to Truckin Along With Kearsey. You mean the fire extinguishers are even "Walmart grade" these days? Blowing up from hitting a bump? Companies are even too cheap to buy good American-made fire extinguishers? I can now understand the reasons most people wash out of this big-rig gig within a year. Most employees hate to work for cheap companies with shoddy equipment.

Lighten up there Todd, you haven't hurt anyones feelings, the reason you are referenced as a troll has more to do with your using multiple identities as if you're trying to fool us into thinking you are not you. I for one find light humor in your posts. Why do you feel a need to do the multiple identities thing? We all know the types of things you post and as long as you don't start trying to post things in poor taste or blatantly wrong and unsafe it's all good. So that being said....just pick a personality and stick with it. Your actual self is my recommendation. Just be honest with yourself and us and you'd get a much warmer response here.

I just finished watching that 1979 made-for-TV film Willa last night about the young mother who drives trucks. I have nothing against women who drive for a living provided this is not a detriment to the proper raising of children. A semi's cab is simply no place for little babies.

Women naturally have babies. Women naturally feed babies. Men do neither of these things. This is why there has been a long-established division of labor between the sexes. There is no place for a mother with a baby in arms, or inside the womb, behind the wheel of a semi truck, inside an army tank or even at a fire house. It's not the proper environment for child raising. Women with young ones, in or out of the womb, should place child well-being above personal/feminist selfishness. Concern for child welfare is not sexist.

I actually agree with you; for the most part, to a point, and it's only IMHO. I've had my permit and driven w/the husband a couple summers, when our kids were 10 and 14, at home, with aunt and uncle AND my B.I.L. living next door. They still do. Never did take the leap; stayed home to take care of the kids.

The youngest is NOW 17, and my plan is to go back 'out there' next year, when he ages up.. Daughter is already going to college and working, and has her own place with 2 buddies. I've offered to 'flip' places w/the hubby, to his resounding "No thanks!" << of course!

I don't believe Kearsey HAS kids. (You're welcome for the link.)

Re: fire extinguishers; HAD to go out & check the rig before hubby left. It's a KIDDE brand, from Grainger ISC. Dunno how you got 'WalMart' ... ?!?!

Peace~!

You're welcome. I can't attest to 'others' fire extinguishers, but ours (husbands truck) comes from Grainger Supply; Kidde brand.

I equate "Walmart" with cheaply-made products regardless of the brand name printed on the box.

Walmart-grade = inferior

Oh, and Walmart actually does sell fire extinguishers. I can't attest to product quality in that regard though. I can attest to a lot of damaged food items on Walmart shelves I've observed however. Cans of Campbell's soup with rust on the can tops. Many dented cans. Soiled milk containers. Spoiled produce.

Then why do you shop there if you're superior to Walmart?

What are you hoping to achieve here? You've been active today, the chronic fatigue must be resolved?
