I did in training but haven’t gotten a run solo yet for that. Not sure if I’m cleared to yet. Ya well it’s ok that’s just extra pay I’ll take lol oh damn that don’t sound fun

I thought you did triples too lol.

It's always fun when dispatch changes what you are doing after your hooked. Even extra fun when you dig a trailer out of the snow and then don't need it.

I’m in Salt Lake City. Pulled triples today. Guess that answers my question earlier. In hotel now. Hey bobcat what are your trucks governed at?

Really surprised they are having you do triples so soon.

Our trucks are 65, unless the run it is assigned to is more than 600 miles than it is 68. We also have some at 70 my terminal has 1 I'm not sure what the mileage requirements are for that.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

I got passed by a Holland truck out here he was doing 68 which is highly unusual. Almost all the YRC/ Holland trucks are 63 l, which makes them fun to pass at 65 since they never want to cut me some slack.

Oh he must know someone to have it bumped up. My trainer told me there was this woman who knew how to hack into the computer to bump it up. They had to get on her case lol. Dk if they ended up firing her or not. Ya if I see a truck passing me I slow down a little and let them pass

It’s great I’ve been busy running a lot. Mostly Cali runs during week and nearing weekend I usually get a longer run. I’m in susanville Cali now 88 miles west of Reno. I do triples up to Reno then doubles here. Tomo I will do the reverse back to Vegas. I am union driver but grumpy not yet lol

Doubles:

Refers to pulling two trailers at the same time, otherwise known as "pups" or "pup trailers" because they're only about 28 feet long. However there are some states that allow doubles that are each 48 feet in length.
