Unless that top bunk has a restraint system, like ALL bottom bunks should have, it is against MOST company policies to be in the top bunk, while the vehicle is in motion.

While true you go flying off the bunk if your up there if the drire hits the breaks but loo at it like this......

Truck is moving at 65 mph therefore you are moving at 65 mph. Truck stops and you go flying at 65 mph off the top bunk. Not a very fun way to get a close look at the wind shield.

Smiles Winerasrer and Scott... So, here's what I have concluded. After interacting with everyone and getting a highly valuable an much needed perspective, I have decided that as much as would love the road, I am much too social. I can see me in my mini skirts, heels and wondering where to get my nails filled at. I'm not sure my personality is conducive to you alls life style.

But hey, thanks for all your genuine comments and insights.

Peace out all!

This is a very lonely job. You have to be able to go a day or two and sometimes more without a shower. Baby wipes become your best friend on the road. Wearing a mini skirt and heels in a truck stop will get you much more attention than you want. Dirt under your nails. You may be correct in your assessment. Good luck to you!
