Gorgeous, Bora!

I'm a 'state away' ... on 77 !!!

Be safe, and congrats.

Chewing gum and life saver wintergreens (single wraps) are essentials to MY guy... in case of the drowsies. Stay away from those damn coffee shots and those 2" tall energy things. The crash... can cause just that.

Wish you well, still following~

YAY!!

Yes the best thing about the trucking for me now to see all the beautiful places!!

Thank you for the tip for the wintergreens I would try. I am not a coffee person or energy drink person. I just have Gatorade or Powerade and water.

Thank you for following πŸ™‚

Bora Bora, when I feel a need for a boost, I crunch on ice. Surprising how well that works.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

Hello Everyone,

I wasn't able to write too much because I finally got my truck and trying to adjust myself to the trucking life :) . Everything has been good ' Knock on Wood' . I haven't had too much trouble and I hope I won't have too much trouble going on. I just had one minor trouble which I ended up somewhere stupid and took me almost 1 hour to get out but I finally managed to get out from there!!.

I have been able to see really beautiful places. Thats really good. I have only one problem, I have 2018 Kenworth T680 and I really like the truck except I wouldn't manage to find the way to run the Autostart. I tried everything. Its showing that it would autostart but it won't
