So you guys suck each other's dicks at truck stops? Is that why there's always glory holes?

What a bunch of fags. I bet you stick your crow bars up each other's asses.

How many hookers have you murdered?
>>
>>720059958
You get paid by mile. Owner operators get paid a few dollars a mile. If you drive for someone its usually around 30 cents a mile or more depending on experience and what company you work for.
>>
>>720059894

lol true they are, but whos gonna drive those trucks otherwise, you?
>>
>>720060239
Their called "lot lizards" in trucker lingo, and I've lost count of how many.

>>720060362
30 cents is pretty low. I mostly see .40 advertised.
>>
>>720060391

>>720058798
Is that your Prostar? What engine/trans?
>>
>>720058798
Is it hard to drive with those long noses/hoods? How do you even see anything? you can have a car in front of you and won't even see it. Trucks here are flat in the front. American trucks look so unnecessary really.
>>
>>720060652
>550 a day
In 11 hours either your driver sucks or you're so full of shit it's coming out of your mouth.

I would kill to drive a 1959 GMC 950 COE with a 6v92. I would slap a turbo and an intercooler on it too. Fabricate a truck bed over the fifth wheel, that is my dream ride.

Do you have a hole in the floor so you can piss/shit out while you are driving or do you just use diapers?

>>
>>720061905

>>
>>720061905
I float that shit.
>>
>>720061729
Get one with a power 10 let the computer shift for you. But if you can't double clutch you have no business being in a big rig.
>>
>>720061997
Miss the old mack quadreaplex. Learned on that when I was 13.
>>
>>720062106
>double clutching
>not floating like a boss
Fuck out of here
>>
>>720062106

>>
>>720062106
Only Billy Big Rigs double clutch....a real trucker doesn't use the clutch when shifting

TQL broker here.
How much do you hate me?
>>
>>720058798
I am researching companies that offer CDL training right now. I can't afford to take the classes here at home on my own.

Is there one that you would recommend for training/pay/miles over and above the rest?

I have looked into PAM, Jim Palmer, Swift, Roehl, Prime, Stevens, etc etc

Any help for a newfag trucker wannabe would be appreciated. I have done a lot of cross country >26,000 driving but I want to make the big bucks like you guys.

Thanks for any help!

Don't know, basically googled "old ass truck", my point was transmission syncro rings where to my knowledge Patent in 1982 which began the death of 'double clutching' in 99.9999% of situations.
Protip: Unless you have an extremely heavy flywheel in some sort of plant machinery shifting from 2nd to 5th, which you wouldn't, you would never double clutch an up-shift.
>>
>>720060590
Sure you see it advertised, just like used car dealerships advertise like this
>USED CARS FROM $2999!!!
That cheap car is something you never want to even touch, let alone drive on a regular basis. The real stuff is significantly north of there.
It's the same with trucking loads. The expensive stuff is either heavy haul, oversized, hazardous, runs through some truck-hating bureaucratic hellhole like New England, or some combination of all of the above. Runs which, if you were an O/O doing the same load, you'd net out a hell of a lot more than .40 a mile to make.
In reality the easy, low-hassle shit doesn't pay too much because it doesn't have to.
>>
>>720059894
I am not a trucker, but brokers are the biggest assholes ever. I used to IT for one. Every time I'd be at their office I'd hear them on the phone cutting a deal the same way. Oh hey I have a load for you how much do you need? Oh, I don't think we do that much, let me ask my boss. Then they put them on hold, just sat there and screwed around, then go back on the line, he'll let me add on another $300 but that's as much as we can go.
>>
>>720064365
There are no "syncro rings in a truck transmission fag

1) How much do you jackoff?
2) What do you do with all that cum?
3) How much do you get your dick sucked?
4) How much dick have you sucked?
5) Show us that dick.

cops through areas you have to pass through,how are they?
>>
>>720058798
How many hookers have you been with? Why haven't you killed yourself yet? When will you settle down and get a real mans job like prostitution?
>>
>>720064693
Ive never been pulled over by highway patrol. Just make sure all your paperwork is current and stay within the speed limit and you'll be fine.
>>
>>720058798
Are you east bound and down?
Are you going to do what they say cant be done?
>>
>>720058798
Does your rig have a speed limiter? Here in Canada they have to be limited to 100km/h
>>
I guess I should have known better than to ask a serious question >>720062683 on /b/
>>
Will you ever drive full speed thru hippy protesters ?
>>
>>720065265

Have you checked out this site?

http://www.thetruckersreport.com/truckingindustryforum/
>>
>>720065265
Well pretty much all big truck companies that offer to help you get your Class A will make you sign a contract saying you will work for them for 2 years or so. It's better to just pay the money out of your own pocket.
>>
>>720065265
Yeah looks like OP has abandoned thread
>>
>>720058798
Hey trucker, serious question. Do you use a butt plug or even a vibrator, if so for how long and does the vibration of the truck makes it more pleasurable?
>>
>>720058798
>pic semi-related
>>
>>720065622
Yes
>>
How worried are you that your job could be taken by a self driving vehicle?
>>
>>720058798
Hear about the trucker that spilled marbles in indy? What did he probably do wrong?

This should be easy if you're legit.
>>
>>720065382
No officer, I would NEVER do that
>I would TOTALLY do that
>>
>>720059894
Yeah, you expect drivers to do illegal shit so you can take the money and run for doing jack shit but sit on your ass all day.
>>
>>720065843
No. It was skittles
>>
>>720065442
I have looked at some of the posts, still reading. It is a good resource, but everyone has a different opinion and I am just getting more confused as I go.

>>720065508
Most of them are 1 year contracts, but that is fine. You can't get a job with one of the better companies without some experience anyway.

>>720065597
Well, OP is always a fag right?
>>
>>720066061
Wrong
