    i know how this guy feels, during the summer before my dad retired from trucking and got into bussing i used to go out with him on every trip, we;d be gone for weeks on end sometimes. he worked for Taylor Transportation in Amherstburg, ON and the day to day stuff truckers have to deal with is nearly nerve-racking. from blown tires and the occasional motor to the ultra narrow traffic filled streets of Chicago. i may have been along for the ride but i felt every delay we had. keep on truckin’ man.

    Was that a Volvo or a Detroit engine? I thought you were driving a 13 speed. Just wondering if I was seeing things or not.

    I used to drive back in 1992 for CRST. I have also drove for Star out of Morton, Illinois. I’m glad I don’t do it no more. I still like to go to McDonalds right next to the truck stop in our town and watch the rigs come and go. I guess I’ve got that diesel fuel in my blood.

    hy…nice…i`m from Europe(Romania),a truck driver like u….and my dream is to go in U.S. to work there…but is not so easy for me…..

    Hi all.
    I must say that I am interested in your kind of trucks, the cabin is my interest.
    I am from Europe, Romania, to be more specific. Here, three years ago nobody care about the rest program of truck drivers… in one day (almost 24h) you could make 1200 km, witch in miles will be translated as 750 .
    As tips for the future videos, try to capture on tape all of your trips, on the road using a support for the camera.
    Have safe trips, and watch the others!
    Romania!

    Can somebody please educate me about directions? I want to know is a navigation devise allowed in trucks? There are hundreds of miles to cover throughout the U.S., but knowing how to get from point A to B to C and …etc. is not realistic without help; even following a map while driving is not realistic, you could miss an exit or a turn. Thus, how does a company teach its drivers to navigate from point to point without getting lost?

    Hey man, thanks for taking the time to put this out for us. One question I have is about pay. Is it realistic to be making 45K in my first year driving solo?! I’m getting different answers depending on who’s video I watch and what forum I visit.

    What sorts of things do you recommend to buy in order to make life in the truck more tolerable? Thanks again.

    I like what you are doing, I was over the road a long time ago and am thinking of going back. I would suggest you show how and why you slide the tandums and the fifth wheel and how to adjust the brakes. My trainer wanted me for my logbook and did not teach me shit. I would like to know how the new log rules are affecting you, do you do more drop and hooks to keep you from sitting on the dock? Thanks for posting these they are a help.
