Hello guys first day out headed to California, somewhere in South Dokota....I was able to drive 603 miles today. Getting ready to crash...long day shifting is becoming like second nature, still a few hiccups but am doing it now without thinking about it much of the time...

Awesome miles for a newbie, wow!

Shifting is like riding a bike; told ya! Hope to hear more soon; so happy for you, man.

All aspects of shifting have improved greatly today...came in with 618 miles today with about 45 minutes left on my drive clock. I am tired but loving it. Just showered and heading to bed, will post photos soon. Just outside of AZ. Heading south on 15 into CA. tomorrow

That's a lot of miles in a shift. It will be slower tomorrow with the Cali 55 MPH statewide speed limit.

Yes it was I am whipped, luckily we deliver a couple hundred miles away and back out so it shouldn’t be that bad at 55, out trucks are governed at 65 anyway

All of my photos go to my profile regardless of what I do

Are you labeling the photo, and then hitting 'Go!' afterwards, and waiting for it to say 'sucess!' ?

You'll then see a 'thumbnail' to the right of where you uploaded the photo.

Then, scroll down the document you are typing currently, as I am doing here, and hit 'preview' at the bottom.

You should see your actual photo, within the post you are working on.

Then, hit 'submit' at the bottom. Hope this helps!!

I checked out your photos in the profile anyway, though!!!! Didn't see one of the Utah rest area.

ps: Keep keepin' on, good sir!

BMI:

Body mass index (BMI)

BMI is a formula that uses weight and height to estimate body fat. For most people, BMI provides a reasonable estimate of body fat. The BMI's biggest weakness is that it doesn't consider individual factors such as bone or muscle mass. BMI may:

  • Underestimate body fat for older adults or other people with low muscle mass
  • Overestimate body fat for people who are very muscular and physically fit

It's quite common, especially for men, to fall into the "overweight" category if you happen to be stronger than average. If you're pretty strong but in good shape then pay no attention.
