You find no amusement value in my writings, PackRat? I feel truck drivers occasionally need some relief from the everyday boredom of white line fever.

Todd, your writings have no value here. With regard to truck drivers seeking distraction from this lifestyle, there’s an infinite supply of resources available that provide that service. I and probably everyone else who comes to this forum do so to learn about or help educate others in this lifestyle; I don’t come to a truck driving forum to be distracted from truck driving. I am certain there are plenty of sites on the internet webs dedicated to amateur writing where you can share your love for prose, and won’t be met with the amount of negative feedback you receive here.

I agree with Pete B. The bull:::: comments are of no use. I love good humor but not anything Tood/tool posts here.

He came in under the radar at first.

Todd's comments, and those of his other personalities, though rather boring and scatterbrained, are usually harmless and only kill a few brain cells. We allow most of his comments because they sometimes segway into other helpful conversations. That and we hope it keeps him from harming children or tearing the wings off of flies, etc.

Eventually he has to go away, though. But he'll be back with a new and unimproved version of himself soon.


Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

Jones, from your tremulous uncertainty about driving, a realtor gig would DEFINITELY be a better match for you. I can see you as a Mr. Gandolfo Renaissance Man.

Maybe even get that sweet Cadi?

I still wonder why he has such an axe to grind against truckers. Maybe one of us stole his wife or something?

Did he HAVE ONE?? (Wife, haha... NOT axe . . . I'm not wagering that one!) I really was of the mindset that one of us 'lowly' drivers (or wives of,) didn't spit shine his Army boots, good enough! LoL. I've always been kind to his alter egos.

He just didn't realize that being on DuckDuckGo (which is a FREE VoIP) .. can be seen by a member of the same provider, methinks!

He was harmless; Brett just had enough, methinks. I mean, from flip flops to Real Estate . . . . ?!?!?

Hey sorry for late replies all. Been good. Been keeping busy or trying to. Sometimes they have nothing for us so we stay home but I usually get atleast 4 days a week when that happens. I’m in beaver Utah now getting fuel then heading back to Vegas. One more night that is if I don’t get a layover run Friday. Lol. Trying to have a nice weekend but we’ll c. But it’s going great I’m enjoying it. I learned to, kinda anyways, back doubles hooking into a third trailer lol

Cool story bro.

Hey Rhino how're things going with you?


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.
