Thanks! I appreciate it. The Dustbuster stays in arms reach because I use it everyday LOL. The fan is nice and keeps me from running the truck until it’s over 75 outside. The purifier helps a lot with the dust. I’m not having to clean the dash as much.

Paper mills aren’t known for being dust free. More like dirt devils. So the pedal area does stay dirty most times.

Idk I found those New Balance years ago and they’ve served me very well. I need to clean them. They’ll probably give me 2 more years. Very comfortable to. On sale for $40 at the time

Well, shut MY face! TYSM, CM Five Niner~!

I'll sure take that with a HUGE thank you! Wow, just .. wow. NICE! Very ! Like anyone could see gunk in the door jamb??! NOPE! My home one is way worse, haha!

That fan. Our son has the same one. Pretty awesome, isn't it?

Want to trade some TP and/or PT for some SMUCKERS ?!??! (How much jelly/jam can one household eat ?!?!?) Tom's hung up there, trying to finish 3rd run, to be off tmrw... NO JOKE!

Thanks, man. Really really nice. I'm still 'wow' ing!

ps: (Sweet as .. ykw.... set up! New Balance Clouds! Major fist bumps & arm pumps!)

I’m thinking the air fryer route for some non microwaved food. I’ve done both the hot plate and toaster oven and no, not the best options out there.

I’m changing my diet from sandwiches, sandwiches, and more sandwiches; to salads, wraps, grilled chicken, protein etc.

Would be nice to have the chicken crispy. I’ve been craving some baked ziti though I oughta make some at the house cause no one else wants any.

This might be helpful to people who can shop often. I’m home weekly so it’s much easier. But, OTR I would consider some kind of low profile freezer under the bunk.

Fridge is usually stocked with milk, mixed greens, lunch meat, cheese, sauces.

Cabinet above microwave has bread, wraps, cereal, granola or protein bars of some kind, peanut butter (yep), spices etc.

Cabinet above wardrobe contains paper bowls and plates (yes, they were rejects), plastic utensils, my toothbrush/razor bag.

I’d assume you could manage this in bulk. If storing on top bunk or under bunk I’d highly recommend the low profile storage bins. I’m pretty sure you can get a 12v mini deep freezer. They are very efficient.

I went the frozen meal route for some time and I regret that strongly. I realize OTR was difficult to do this but I made I wasn’t that prepared back then.


Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

Agh, alright I’m triple posting. I overlooked your comment on the PlayStation. Yeah, it’s annoying as heck. I do that with the fan and such. I had an Xbox and I have no tv mount so you can imagine. I didn’t care for gaming, just wanted to replay a 10 year old game.

This thought popped in my mind. Ever seen under cabinet mounts? Used to put radios or security DVRs in them.

Like this

Something like that where it hooks up in the cabinet and also secure your PlayStation. The microwave will help hold it to. Probably easier to build you one. I thought that nightstand idea to but there’s no room for that
