I think there's been a tear in the space-time continuum.

I also like to stalk people on the gps tracker app, to see if I'm ever at the same truck stop as anyone...so far, hasn't happened. I think all of you are avoiding me! 😔 lol

Kurt, Kat is rather new to the Forum. It appears she has been digging through the archives. That is a GOOD thing. Some real good stuff in there. I spent lots of time there well over a year ago. Even before I became a member. Keep em' comin' Kat.

I love it.

But it was also good to see some posts of people I haven't seen around here in a while. Man, how time flies.

Yeah, I don't have any problem with adding to an older discussion, and the ideas are just as good now as they were a year ago. I just can't help making stupid jokes. ;)

I agree with Kurt. Old post but all great ideas. I've been thinking about bringing one of my guitars so I won't get rusty while I'm out on the road. Hey maybe I'll finally be able to play and sing at the same time lol. I was also thinking about bringing my vaping lab (if one can call it that) so I can experiment making new flavors. The last thing I want to do is go back to smoking.

I'm just at the beginning of CDL training. Once I hit the road , ( be several months) I plan to write. ( Wrote a history of my life, growing up with 11 siblings. Formatted, the manuscript, and gave a copy to each of my sister's. For Christmas) they loved it.) Childhood memories are suppose to be good, " aren't they". Also, I'm going to do something for all you truckers! I in my former life was a chef. I'm thing on a " Keep on Trucking " cookbook. I'm thinking on a format of a rotating Dailey menu. To give diet variance. What everyone think?

If you have an excellent work ethic you will not be bored. Keeping busy is easy in this career. Approach everyday with a willingness to do the best you got and then take it to the next level beyond that, and the only thing you will be thinking about is parking at the end of your day hoping you stay awake long enough to get a couple of bits of food before you pass out.

Boredum is a strong theme in my life right now and i am worried about being bored out of my gourd when i get out there. I am hoping that audiobooks and my phone will be enough to keep me sane, but i get bored easily and i tend to get sleepy when i am bored. What do you guys do to ward off the mind numbing spectre of dullness or are you mostly content to watch the universe move around you while you stay stationary?

Audio books. Great way to learn something new or just be entertained.
