I had to save this for a day, to let my other half look at it, along with....and then 're read' your diary.

He has a Qualcomm; not a 'Zany'oNar' as yours; but besides the mileage, his first question was: 'how do you do a yard move whilst in the sleeper berth?' << To which 'my' answer was (of course,) a HOSTLER DID IT ?!?!?

Sleeper Berth:

The portion of the tractor behind the seats which acts as the "living space" for the driver. It generally contains a bed (or bunk beds), cabinets, lights, temperature control knobs, and 12 volt plugs for power.

Qualcomm:

Omnitracs (a.k.a. Qualcomm) is a satellite-based messaging system with built-in GPS capabilities built by Qualcomm. It has a small computer screen and keyboard and is tied into the truck’s computer. It allows trucking companies to track where the driver is at, monitor the truck, and send and receive messages with the driver – similar to email.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

I hope you've been keeping paper logs after your ELD went haywire. It's not recording correctly, so you have to get it repaired or replaced in like eight days.
