Just happened to be my 3rd week out, so was set to be home Thursday,for 3 days, but got near home, Tuesday afternoon, to take my 10 hr SB....Is an empty lot near house 2 miles away from I-15, parked n slept there... again.

Plan was to deliver my load, so 2 am woke up at the dirt lot a mile from home, drove down, delivered, took my empty to pick up loaded target trailer. Dropped my loaded trailer at our drop lot, then BT home. Got here eh 5 am. So got 4 days off, I plan to grab my load Sunday sometime, if not late-late Saturday night, and start my next 3 weeks back n forth from Texas/Oklahoma/Cali.

Worked out good since buddy n his wife going to Vegas, daughters house for xmas, so I can be the dog sitter lol the dogs missed me !! The 4 of em think I'm their owner, and stick to me like glue.....Yeah I make sure they got water and I give em treats....Got home and wahlah ! the outside water bowls were near empty, the Lab n the Pitty, girls, lap that stuff up !!

Sounds like a GREAT way to spend the holidays, actually ~ with CANINE pals!

Enjoy!

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.

Merry Christmas everyone. I’m about 2 hours from my best friends house where I’ll be spending 3 days. Actually 5 because they got me here 2 days early. I didn’t even ask. My FM texted and asked me if I wanted Christmas off lol

Fm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Home for five since the 23rd. Enough time to gain 10 pounds.

I worked for the postal service for 17ish years and never had Christmas or thanksgiving off. I got hired in trucking and my trainer took thanksgiving Christmas and new years.

After that thanksgiving and Christmas was easy. I used my vacation time a couple years to have both Christmas and new years off.
