Got in about 6 hours of driving and bumper to bumper traffic in Connecticut. Trying to find a place to park was ridiculous.

If you are on 84, there is a good eastbound rest area in Southington, it is between Waterbury and Hartford. Even if marked spots are taken, there are always places to park.

Hey all it has been awhile. But things Re going good...except for my backing. Still having some issues on set up and hitting the hole. But my trainer is patient and my last back of the week was the bomb... home time has been a blessing. I have been home the last 2 weekends. Our FM has been great about getting us home a day early.

I go back out tomorrow and starting my 5 solo loads this week. Hopefully all goes well and I get my own truck end of the week or next week. Can't believe this trip so far. It has been fun, exciting, challenging, frightening, amazing.

Can't wait to get on to making real money. It has been tough and the bills are piling up. But that is only temporary.

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.
