For the last few months I've been in the truck w/my trainer sleeping while he drives and vice versa. I completely trust him to drive and he had deemed me competent enough to drive on my own 99% of the time (the construction leading into the drop yard in TX is kind hairy). This had led to an unexpected side effect. Literal nightmares any time I try to sleep when not rolling. So far 3 have woken me up. Near tuna canning the trailer then backing into another trailer while parking. Rolling the rig while creeping through rough construction. Running off the highway to avoid a high speed crash. I don't normally remember dreams and just wanted to let others know if they experience the same, they are not alone.

Keep an eye on those dreams. If these start to get out of hand, talk with somebody with a title.

The only two bad ones I had were I was actually back team driving, and in the other one, I was driving a day cab!

A tractor which does not have a sleeper berth attached to it. Normally used for local routes where drivers go home every night.

A few of my students have mentioned having truck related nightmares while training.

My recurring nightmare always involves my truck rolling backwards down a slight incline and no matter how hard I step on the break it refuses to stop🤷‍♂️

Day Cab:

A tractor which does not have a sleeper berth attached to it. Normally used for local routes where drivers go home every night.

This morning I was sleeping in the top bunk (We were shut down) and I swear the truck was rolling forward. In a panic I leapt out of the top bunk making my partner **** himself and I got in the driver seat. Luckily I was just being a bonehead and the truck wasn't actually moving.
