Before I came back out otr this time around I was playing games a ton. Think 8-10 hrs a day. I saved up n bought myself a pretty good laptop, not top of the line but still up there. You want to know how many times I pulled it out in the first 6 months? 4 times. Only when I had a reset did it make sense to pull it out. You have 10ish hrs a day that is free time, by the time you get parked and showered n fed your gonna be ready for bed. When I got a new truck I actually left it at home because I used it so little.

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

You won’t be able to use it on your trainer truck but when yo go on your own then have at it. I have a ps4 in my truck for when I am bored or get stuck resetting somewhere. My trainer had an Xbox he played on his truck and he offered me to play it but I declined. Honestly by the end of my drive shift all I wanted to do was call home and sleep.
