Long story short, I now drive for a living. I'm typing this in Pilot #013, just west of Akron. It's cold and blowy out, and I have another 14 hours to go until I pick up my next load. So of course I went for a ride. Put in about 20 miles (I am *remarkably* out of shape) and got a remarkably mediocre burrito at a local joint. Seriously, it tasted like they went out of their way to duplicate Taco Bell. But night before last, I decided that I would take advantage of the beautiful South Carolina evening and just rode into town (Greenville) for a twilight ride; it was really nice.

the job is remarkably stressful; always counting time, always having to stay focussed, and of course the seats are for crap. But the way I look at it, there's a $300 bill laying on the ground every other day and all I have to do is drive over and pick it up. And it gets better from there. I have an auxiliary power unit on my truck, which lets me carry a microwave, an electric kettle, and a griddle; I have a good big ice chest so I can carry groceries and I'm not eating the crap they sell at truck stops. It works out... okay. It's a living.

My truck isn't a double-berth "condo" so I had to work out another solution. I have it bungeed to the back of the cab, and locked to the grab rail. I had to wrap the end of the left pedal in a length of inner tube to keep it from scratching up the back ended up with a pretty good solution

{Hmm, apparently my phone isn't loading to Photobucket right now. Pics to follow, sorry.)

In any event, I get to ride my Trek 560 all over the country. As circumstances change, I might try to figure out a way to carry a mountain bike; if I'd had one the other night, I could have got in some trail riding in the Pisgah, which would have been epic.

Also: It took me exactly ONE trip to figure out that I HATE I-40 from Knoxville to Asheville, and while West Virginia is truly beautiful, I-77 north is several hundred miles of fuel-sucking, brake-burning attention wh**e.

More later.

Y'all keep the shiny side up now, y'hear? HENCHMAN out.
Well, if you're ever in a truck stop and see some old fart hauling his bike out of a gold Cascadia and cycling out of the lot, flag me down and I'll go ride with ya.
I'm fortunate enough to have a top bunk so my bike can ride pampered in sheltered comfort inside.

Bison, unit 37085, but I only drive it every other week, Wednesday to Tuesday. In between it's my truck share partner, and I don't think he'd be caught dead on a bicycle.

The worse part is after a few years even in your car your automatically caclulating your dive and arrival time out of habit. I is stressfull but better than the assembly line. Mya APU was wonderfull until stopped putting out electric power last Christmas while I was in New Mexico at 20degrees.

My truck isn't a double-berth "condo" so I had to work out another solution. I have it bungeed to the back of the cab, and locked to the grab rail. I had to wrap the end of the left pedal in a length of inner tube to keep it from scratching up the back ended up with a pretty good solution

When I carried a bike I just sat it on the bed and the manuvered it onto the floor at night. I finally got tired of that and rigged an Allen 103 A bike rack up on the top bunk.

You don't like "The Gourge"? I hate it too but only because someone other truck is always ridding my bumber. How guys can run through there at 65+ amazes me. Which part of 77? Bluebell to Charleston or Charleston to OH? both are pretty but but atleast there is Starbucks on the southern end.

More later.

Y'all keep the shiny side up now, y'hear? HENCHMAN out.

Glad to hear your new carrier is working out. been pulled around back yet? that is where the real fun starts.

Roehl doesn't get pulled around back. That logo is like a Cloak of Invisibility. Haven't even been singled out to scale, just drive on through with the rest of the goobers.

Truck's in the shop right now, came up with electrical gremlins today. All my gauges started doing a jitterbug, then the engine started hiccupping. As luck would have it, I was under a mile from one of our depots so I limped it in, dropped the van and now I'm upstairs in the driver's lounge watching Hitch. Not a bad movie.

Life is better driving for a carrier that consistently shows up on the winners list of the Truckload Carriers Association safety awards as both your employer and mine do. You just don't get much hassle.
(Except maybe from other drivers because we are speed limited.)

OK since someone noticed my updated tagline, it is time to come clean with all of you since I have been living a lie for about a year now.

I unfortunately had to give up my driving job last Feb because of constant scheduling conflicts with my Reserve duties. So from Feb to Mid July I worked parttime with my reserve unit, 3-4 days a week then from mid July to the end of the year I managed to score fulltime orders. After the first of the year thanks to the "fiscal cliff" and the dreaded "sequestration" everything dried up after the first of the year, so I have been enjoying a little too much down time.

The good news is that with a little luck I will be retiring YA! from the reserves in June or July. The even better news is I got a new job and start next week. I will be working locally for a trucking company and working a 10 or so hour shift 5 days a week. The 'fleet' I will be on runs within 150 or so mile radius of Harrisburg Pa! The money is susposed to be good (esp for local) but you have to hustle a bit. I get to sleep at home every night, I will be able to actually ride 2 or more days a week depending how tired I am after work and how late I get home, and maybe even do other stuff like shopping in store, the shooting range and cooking.

Thanks for clearing up that bit of a mystery. So I suppose you won't be heading up I-91 in VT anytime soon.

Thanks for your service in the Reserves and a well earned retirement.

Congratulations on your pending retirement. I served a long time in the Air National Guard and understand how drill weekends and annual training can disrupt ones life. Its good to serve ones country and also good to get that retirement check. As we continue to shrink the size of government and reduce spending there will be more and more people who will be facing or already face the economic fallout you have been experiencing. Its good you have been able to find a job, many won't. Good luck with your current job.

Now that sounds like a driving job I can handle. I found that me and 2-3 hours of sleep a day don't mix, especially with an all or nothing "finisher" that expected me to read his mind most of the time. I guess that's expected with OTR? I found it dangerous to be hovering on the brink of exhaustion half the time, trying to sleep in a top bunk with the heat soaking through the roof, and trying to sleep at odd hours. Hopefully I can find something like you found in Houston, in fact I'm pretty certain I can if I look hard enough. Congrats on the ideal trucking job!,,,,BD

The last I heard my finisher had decided to file a "workers comp" claim. I still have his number, I should call him and see if it paid off. I (and another driver for our company) were there when the alleged injury took place, and I got a call from someone at the company. I guess he wasn't smart enough to realize they would contact me at some point?

A local truck driving job sounds much easier on the body than a long haul job. Good luck with that. I hope you enjoy it.

Congrats on the new job, hope it works out for you. I'd be working local or regional myself if I was driving full time. The only reason I'm doing OTR is I get every other week off so I can ride bikes and play bike mechanic.
Probably stick with it until I fully retire, soon I hope.

Working one week out of every two doesn't sound so bad. I'm surprised such positions exist. Are they hard to get? The last time I read about the trucking industry, they had you driving nearly seven days a week for weeks on end. Have things changed?

Well, I guess I'm about a year and a half late here. Or a few days, depending how you look at it. Congrats on finding a nice local-type job like that, BG, & thanks for your service, too. I guess this means there's not much chance you'll stop & visit here in Seattle now, huh?

Bianchigirl, nothing beats local . Nothing. I even don't mind hauling passengers . I'd rather be driving a box truck, but a bus is okay, at least for the duration. Glad to hear you have a new job, and a short run. Good luck.
