are there any positive aspects to team driving? I'm referring to team driving with just another driver who is not a spouse or significant other

Well, the money is a little better and you always have a spotter to spot you on those tough backings. Plus you have some company instead of being in complete isolation for weeks.


Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

It depends on who you're rolling with. Some people get along fine until they have to live together in the truck, and basically run a business together. If you've never teamed before, it's like riding with a trainer, except you're in it together, so to speak. Some teams are awesome as a team, but don't get along, but it works because they are dedicated to driving. Personally, I have teamed with 3 different people, and one I don't talk to any more, one I have talked to occasionally, and the other is kind of like a good friend that I talk to more often, but we've grown apart. One has called me up to get me to drive one of his trucks, as he is running like 3 trucks now, but I won't give up what I got.

Maybe you won't mind his bucket of KFC in the floor. Maybe he won't mind your cigarette ashes everywhere.

Lol- thanks for the insight; i am told that at Celadon training, you can kinda sorta pick a co-driver from among the other noobs for when you you come out ofsix week on the road training. Still a crap shoot probably, with hopefully slightly less crap
