What are your favorite things to do when you aren't driving/sleeping on the road?

What do you have in the truck to keep you entertained?

I have an iPad and subscribe to Netflix, although find myself viewing YouTube more than Netflix lately.

And I try to keep up with an obscure website called Trucking Truth. Haha.

Reading, reading, and more reading. I used to have a laptop on board so I could play video games too. Never had the time for it though.

I also like to watch YouTube reaction videos. I get a kick out of hearing what younger people feel about the music I grew up with. It also allows me to relive the first time hearing a song through someone else's perspective. Wow! I'm pretty boring actually🤣

That's not boring; it's actually quite an admirable trait. I do the same, myself . . . but it's cooler from a guy, haha!

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.

Games I play to unwind on my 10, if I'm not talking on the phone...which isn't very often since I park late at night usually.

I've had to do two 34 hr resets with this company 😝 so I watch YouTube or Pluto movies or listen to music.

How do you get your Xbox to work? Doesn't it require Internet to work correctly? Do you have a TV?
