Does it pay well
Is it worth it

Worst thing is the people out here driving. People ask for money lots of homeless in every big city

How much do you dread I-80 between Cheyenne and Laramie mid winter?

>>743202306
So I read somewhere that large truck transmissions can get up to 18 gears, with a completely different clutch system and multiple "levels" on the gearshift making the same spot do different things.

How the hell do you enjoy driving that?
>>
>>743203025
This year will be my first winter, 7 months doing it so far
>>
>>743203025
My nigga.

You a trucker or a Wyomingite?

How would you deal with this?

ever been robbed?
>>
>>743202306
Is that your truck or the company's truck?
>>
can you show some pictures of the "room" behind the wheel and your sleeping quarters??? i'm really curious what it actually looks like
>>
>>743203193
My favorite so far is the 13 speed, on a 9 speed trained on a 13 and 10. It was a little confusing because it's also nothing like a cars standard transmission on how you shift. But luckily my trainer showed me how to float the gears and that makes it so much easier
>>
Given your high vantage point, have you ever seen guys masturbate in their cars while driving?
>>
>>743203202
Oh I see.
Might want to prepare your anus

>>743203214
Neither.
Coloradoan who has driven through some shit with I-80 being in 1st and 2nd place
>>
>>743203238
Keep doors locked, if they tried to pull some nig shit I would run them over.

what's your max range with a tank fully load and no trailer ?
>>
>>743203901
On my truck, never really go anywhere empty or bobtail, I can get about 300 miles for 1/4 tank give or take if it's flat or hilly. Lots of factors I'd say safely 1000 miles full tanks when loaded.
>>
I love that comfy feels
>>
>>743203815
nice, looks cozy! how is it during the winter?? cold as fuck?
>>
>>743204329
This winter will be the first for me, judging by the summer this truck won't have a problem staying warm.
>>
have you a shower inside ? or water tank ?
>>
>>743204986
You shower at truck stops, free shower if you get fuel.
>>
>>743202941

Unless you're driving hazmat. You can make bank hauling those loads
>>
>>743202306
why do you fags always park in the wrong spots? i've told you a billion times you can't park on our property, yet the same faggots pretend someone told them they could.
>>
>>743205215
Most of the time it's not even worth the hassle for how much "more" you get paid.
>>
>>743203238
His cheesy club music is epic. I would order a case of bear mace and fucking spray the shit out of anyone who touched my truck.
>>
>>743205381
Call a tow truck, there are a lot of bad truckers out there. I only park at approved spots at shippers or receivers with permission and truck stops. U 4 wheelers stop entering the highway at slow speeds expecting me to slow down when it's not safe for me to do so then speed off.
>>
>>743205215
A lot of hazmat is 2 people, so unless you can phone someone and get them at the pickup and find another at the drop off for $20 each half of a shit load is just less than a normal load. Works out OK if you pay $20 for a blow job and she is dressed normal and will sit in the truck until delivery is made..
>>
>>743205595
good job. i've had people fired for bad behavior. you'll definitely do yourself a huge favor by being a cool bro. everyone loves cool bros.
>>
What do you do to stay awake?

How common is underage prostitution?

Are you worried self driving vehicles will make your job obsolete?
>>
>>743202306
Are there enough hose car washes to deal with driving through ghettos and high nigger areas and playing whack a mole?

I know cops tend not to care, but you can't leave the shit stains on the front your whole delivery..
>>
>>743205975
Stay awake, you get good long sleep. If I need to give myself a little boost a small energy drink maybe but if I get tired I stop and go to bed. Fuck this load I'm not going to die over it.

Like I said before haven't see any lot lizards


Self driving, truckers have a long time before that's a problem. When cars are doing it successfully then truckers will have to worry but it's not anytime soon from what I can see.
>>
>>743206222
Yeah let them try something I'll take their whole family out on the porch and finish my delivery on time.
>>
>>743203025
>>743203202
What's so bad about this particular road,
>>
>>743206392
"Deep down" every trucker has a tale about how they "Kept on going" when a nigger walked in front of their rig or tried to stop them in a shitty part of town.

Don't think many realize it though, heh...
>>
Cousin is a trucker for Swift. Said last week that they sent out an email saying a person jumped infron of one of their trucks. Commoted suicide. Have you known or heard about this happening alot?
>>
>>743204329
its bigger than it looks as well. there is a second bunk he didnt include in the picture on top. cascadias have a lot of sleeper room.
>>
Im pretty sure you keep a piss/shit bucket right? Maybe a 2 liter around for emergencies? How do you cope when it's time to use the restroom?
>>
>>743202306
how do you like the room in your cascadia? im rocking a pete 379 car carrier with a headrack and im tired and uncomfortable with this tiny ass sleeper. thinking of getting a cascadia with a 13 spd and keep hauling cars
>>
Why do truckers look down at you every time you pass them? one of these days im just gonna have my laphog hanging out there .
>>
>>743202306
How many runaways have you murdered?
>>
Whats your opinion on all those energy pills or caffeine pills marketed towards truckers to keep them awake that you always see in gas station? Do they work?
>>
At least you're not in a Mack.
>>
>>743202306
No questions, just wanted to say that you're the part of /b/ I miss so much
>>
why the fuck are you doing this job when it pays so fucking badly. are there really no other options?
>>
I deliberately slow down and let tractor trailers over whenever I can.
I'll also stop several car lengths away from stop signs if I see a truck about to make a sharp turn to give him more room.
>>
>>743208456
Gotta put in the time to make good money. Made around $38k my first year, $57k last year and will make almost $65k this year.
>>
>>743207535
Haven't heard anything about it
>>
How much to fill up?
And how often?
>>
>>743202306
I have a longstanding tradition of asking truckers which state has the worst drivers, and, surprisingly, I usually get the same answer. In your experience, which state has the worst drivers?

Also, what's your go-to radio station? Or do you have xm in that mofo?
>>
>>743207634
Windshield washer fluid jug, I try my hardest not too piss in one but I have had too a couple times
>>743207739
I like it, was in a kw and that had plenty of room was in an international and hated it. Way too small
>>743207869
I don't always, but when we do were looking for a cute girl to show us some tits.
>>743208066

>>743208456
Was the only option I had got suckered in but it does pay off with time doing it. Tough it out and you will make some good money.
>>743208376
Been here since 09 I miss it too. Try not to sit post like everyone else, fb fap ect. Jesus what happened to John the card stand
>>
>>743208537
We appreciate it, we can't stop on a dime and we cant see the best around the truck. But not every truck driver, drives like they should with slow lane changes and proper turn signal. Remember we are the professional driver and some tend to forget that.
>>
>>743207017
Livingston Montana like two weeks ago. Blew air horn, almost caught him with my trailer.
>>
>>743208885
Matters on miles, don't run it to empty most of the time. I'd say costs my truck around 500$ to fill up.
>>
>>743205595
>U 4 wheelers stop entering the highway at slow speeds expecting me to slow down when it's not safe for me to do so then speed off.
how about move the fuck into the next lane then dickhead

Swift= sure wish I finished training

And screw Navaho company drivers, they are terrible in Texas
>>
>>743208364
why the fuck does the speedometer go all the way to 140MPH?
>>
>>743209319
Lol, you are the one merging. Fact I don't have to slow down at all since I have the right away, when you see a truck move over you are the dice head for making him be nice because he can see you can't drive for shit. If it's unsafe for me to let you in your gonna speed up or slam on ur brakes or go into my trailer. I've seen it all already.
>>
>>743208456
Currently team driving making 60,000 annual with three days off, not terrible my bro.

Swing wide it'sa fucking trailer
Swift spelled backwards two fags in white semi

Really though I've seen a lot of other drivers that back into a parking spot worse than swift drivers.

If somebody offered you more money you could make in a year to transport illegals aliens would you do it?

What weapons do you use to protect the goods?

Do you wanna know what its like to drive an actual big rig? ask away.
>>
>>743209724
Hahaha never herd those two before.

But true swift just gets a bad rap because of how many are on the road.
>>
>>743209892
For the most part you shouldn't need a weapon but most truckers have a Billie club or a knife. Not suppose to carry a gun but I assume some do
>>
>>743209510
in case your brakes go out and you fly down the side of a mountain, it's nice to know how fast you're going when you hit the ramp

>>743209831
I've always debated when I'm near Mexican border for let's say, one trip and I could retire super early? Every trucker I've known throws that funny idea around.

But not with people. Or bombs lol
>>
>>743210060
Train would be cool, too bad it's hard as hell to get a chance to drive one without having family already working for a company
>>743210077
There are bad drivers like everywhere but swift just has the biggest numbers.

>>743210384
Thats not true, i got my job by simply applying online 8 years ago, then just jumping through all the hoops they had set up.

I drive a 2014 freightliner Cascadia, can't take pics from the outside, you have my info. Don't really want to own a truck and worry about taxes and everything else but maybe one day when I get tired of being a company driver
>>743210960
Naw if it did happen I'm dropping the clutch and I'm out. Let the police sort them out on the road.

Cascadia is top comfy. Best HVAC system on the road, too.
Freightliner service at every TA when you inevitably break down every two weeks too.
>>
How are you guys getting around the GPS logbooks? Last company I worked for our drivers kept 3 (paper) books at all times. Company was so retarded they didn't know (or maybe care) that guys were going on 18 hours straight

I'd like to see autonomous semis drive across the state of Montana in the dead of winter. Or really any harsh winter driving.

Maybe driving in Nevada or southern states during summer I guess. Super flat, straight and boring.
>>
>>743210060
Now that I'm surprised isn't 100% autonomous. Like why even have a windshield?
>>
>>743203202
That explains enough.

I drove for several years. Get out now, while you still can.

Look deep into the eyes of any driver you meet at truckstops, warehouses, etc...they're all half dead inside.

I did really enjoy the road, however. The industry is so cutthroat though, that being lied to by your own dispatcher and everyone else in between gets really fucking old.

do you have any favorite truck stop? i remember stoping somewhere in Missouri, huge store with lots shit to buy, they had a truck inside, plenty of restaurants and lots of parking space.

You gotta stay active though, read books, listened to podcasts, put something to exercise with in truck.

Gotta keep active mentally/ physically or you will turn into a dead looking corpse.

Seriously though, worst drivers out there bar none
>>
>>743206245
Say like, half the truck drivers are able to be replaced in short-term. Sure, maybe you are part of the half that hasn't been replaced yet but now you're competing against twice the people for half the total jobs.

I would save some money. And automation is coming to most currently existing jobs in the next fifteen to twenty years. That's according to a study by the world's experts on job-replacement and automation.

? And what is your favourite state to drive through?
>>
>>743213117
The major truckstops are always a shit show, and over capacity by 5pm. Some literally never have parking any time of day.
I park at rest areas when possible, small off brand/no names when not.

Oh and try to work for a smaller company, large companies like Gordon, swift, twt ext don't treat you the same as a smaller local dispatch.

Plus a compatible partner for team driving can be a lot easier on you.

Solo driver 5 years
Team 2 years

Fuck oilfield driving though all together

I got a question, havent read the thread though. company i work for takes in a lot of trucks during the day, but stop taking deliveries at 2:30pm. is that a common thing for other companies? I've seen some drivers just leave the trucks outside the gate overnight to deliver at 7am. do they just stay in the cabin from 2:30 to 7am?

My favorite state to drive is a flat one. Hills keep me awake but hills don't pay.

Will happen anyway....enough time in that cab and you'll break eventually >>743213631
I did. We had three drivers, all local runs, about as good as a driving job gets. I was even salaried at $1000/week. You ever heard of a salaried driver? Neither had I.

I been there done that, man. Having a wife and kids made it even more difficult.

Loved the road, hated the job.

Last one you've been in was either a century or columbia, clearly.

In the past 8 years I've had a volvo 760, kdub w900, ftl columbia, century, cascadia, and of course the intertrashional prolapse.

Not counting the brief forays with sterling day cab and capacity yard goat.

Cascadia comfiest by far.
>>
>>743213739
What? But they kept that same color? I swear I just saw a Gordon truck in MT like two hrs ago.... I must of slipped streamed in a parallel universe on that last scale house. Hahah

Used to drive a century, wasn't terrible, but I sure liked a KW or a good Pete better for sure

I never replied to that, was someone else, I have driven a kw 680 and a freight liner a volvo and a international. I've been in a Peter built and I'm assuming that's what u r talking about. They are really small, and for the price tag I'll stay in the freight liner or kw or volvo. Fuck international though. Miget truck space.

You do realize everything you hold dear to your heart material wise is because of transportation right?

fellow driver here...who do you drive for? what's your 20? currently at a flying j outside hebron indiana doing an 8/2 before heading into shit-cago...I am now with an employee-owned company out of tennessee, but this is who I got my training through...absolutely free, paid training, no 1 year contract bullshit...the company sucked but i got in, got my cdl easy, got a year under my belt then went on the hunt for better pay and more home time

You guys make me feel old. I never had any training, I taught myself to drive at 13yo on our family farm. After that it was spud trucks, silage trucks, dump truck, all farm exempt.

>>
>>743215750
Things like this have been attempted in the past. Never seemed to pull together enough to make an impact.

They're ignorant fools, the entire lot of them.
>>
hue hue 7 months? Can you float gears yet?

Anything you'd want to share with someone aspiring to be a trucker?
>>
>>743215618
Never thought I could do it either but then kids happen and you almost feel mentally better having the truck constantly drive you home.
>>
>>743215880
Critical Environments Tech at a massive datacenter in the PNW. Can't go into much more detail due to the ridiculous amount of NDAs I had to sign lol

I get to go home at the same time erryday, now. Very much the opposite as driving.
>>
>>743215557
What I don't get is why they'll monopolize a filthy bathroom sink for 20 minutes washing their face and hair in other drivers' loogies and chode grease instead of just getting a goddamn shower.
>>
>>743216047
Be prepared to smell. Especially the women. nothing like OTR Rank fish pussy smell.
>>
>>743216094
Bigger man than I, apparently.

I imagine your cabin smells like old french fries and farts. Am I correct? Also check my fucking trips.
>>
>>743216201
If you can't shower every day, clean your pits and ass with rubbing alcohol.
It's not hard to not be stinky.
>>
>>743216167
Cause they're filthy turban scum.
>>
>>743216047
If you get home sick don't go otr, also don't expect to get rich or make a lot of money right off the bat. And be safe always. It's always the truckers fault at first.
>>
>>743215956
Man I wish at least we could just not deliver to a major state for a week as protest.

What state would we cut off to make the biggest impact?

Cali?
>>
>>743215750
This is truth. When the trucks stop rolling, cities and suburbs are fucked. Food riots. Cops bug out and its a blood bath in the streets
>>
>>743216376
Prolly is when your bleeing out a fucking gash
>>
>>743202306
what's the spookiest / creepiest thing you experienced on the road? Truth and all.
>>
>>743216412
That's a good place to start...or my state, Washington...anywhere that agriculture is a major industry, really. When people can't get meat and fruits and veggies at the store anymore, they'll pay a little more attention.
>>
>>743216139
I was literally kicking around network jobs like last week.

Man that would be a great feeling, ever get tired of office life? Having a boss loom over you?
>>
>>743216412
>>743216467
It's like I'm really in a driver's lounge, listening to the fatfuck malcontents herp and derp about how society owes them something for their own poor life choices.
>>
>>743202306
What company? Looks like a cozy truck.

I ride in the back on the bed of a 1987 International cab-over with another guy, as well as a guy riding shotgun and obviously the driver, there isn't jack shit for room.

Sometimes we drive 2-3 hours before getting to where we load, so if I want to sleep for a bit it's in some fucked up position
>>
>>743216709
I don't spend much time in the office, actually, I try to stay pretty busy. And my boss, for the most part, is a decent guy. We spend a lot of time duck hunting together during the winter months. I suppose I could call him a friend.

There are days though, like yesterday for example, where we are kinda slow. I watched Jeremiah Johnson all afternoon and then went home early.
>>
How are you able to use the internet while stopped? Assuming one is in the middle of nowhere
>>
>>743216613
Holy shit anon what are the odds two Washington boys want to shut down a state huh? Haha

Yea being a produce driver myself that would really hit fast.

It's unbelievable how much food get delivered on a daily in this country.

7 days would break Cali, maybe they wouldn't be such pricks about dot regulations.
>>
>>743217018
Not sure about him but I used to phonepost from my truck a lot.
>>
>>743217131
Nice. It would be nice being able to call it a day and watch some netflix or hulu
>>
>>743216719
Poor life choices? I'd rather be a truck driver supporting a family very well. Compared to the society brainwash of collecting college debt working at a Starbucks, why do you think all truckers are fat? I see plenty of fat fuck office nobody's too
>>
>>743214002
Salaried driver here, $1,200 a week. Quarterly bonuses bring me to $65k. Home every weekend, too.
>>
>>743217115
I'll bet the odds are decent coming from the same state, and even better since we are both very familiar with the trucking industry, and the ignorants that think drivers are just dirty uneducated fools.
>>
>>743216757
Hahahahah that's amazing, if the balls don't touch no gay right?
>>
>>743217491
Nice. You and I seem to be the exceptions to the rule then. It's not too common to be on a salary as a driver, but I do believe the local haul drivers would be the first to get salary pay. At least that's how it was for me anyway.
>>
>>743217703
It's one of the pay scales my company offers, though not many drivers take it because the catch is forced dispatch. I like a challenge though, so I don't mind it.
>>
>>743217236
Yup, did that a few times while waiting..........for fucking hours and hours on end.
>>
>>743217883
Forced dispatch?! Eww. I can see why not many would take it. But, that's why you're making the better money, so I guess it's good if you can handle it.
>>
>>743217515
Yea, wish I knew where this "image" of fat, unwashed hillbilly type drivers originated from. It's such a small percentage

people are fucking ignorant.
>>
>>743203815
Shit that looks really cozy, I'm grabbing a load of blankets now
>>
>>743202306
where can I, a non truck driver, find prostitutes?

do you ever use a website to find them?
>>
>>743202306
Share some pics of the seat covers you have ie crotch shots of women passing you.
>>
>>743218136
I've met drivers out there with ivy league educations. Some people just really like life in a rig.

Then, there's the turban wearing motherfuckers that literally cut "toilet" holes in the floorboards of their trucks...
>>
>>743217883
Aaahhhh forced dispatch?!?! 666 devil upside down cross! Gross
>>
>>743217485
I'm a truck driver too. I'm describing what I see every single god damn day. Truck drivers are as stereotypical as any mongrel race, but their stereotype crosses race lines.
Hurf durf durhurr fukken 4wheeler herpadepa told that dot guy he didn know shit hurrdurr if we were smart we'd all strike and get what we want herrrrpy derpy doo I'm a combat veteran with a security clearance so high your nose would bleed hurrdurrrrrrrr
>>
>>743218481
Go have a tire fire, faggot.
>>
>>743218340
Dude during the North Dakota boom, mechanic shops would turn those fucks away because shit holes+negative degree weather would coat the undercarriage....ffs
>>
>>743217600
Haha. I mean, we have enough room so we're not on top of each other but it's hard as fuck to sleep in a truck bouncing around while sitting up/leaning to the side.
>>
So has a Babe ever flashed her tits in the Road?
>>
>>743218684
Hit a bit close to home there, buddy? Why don't you go circlejerk with the other faggots in the flying j lounge about how your nephew got a job with the NSA after he hacked the FBI
>>
>>743218712
Yeah, exactly. It's foul.
>>
>>743218481
Nobody loves you anon, some might say they do..but they don't.
>>
>>743218836
Are you high on meth or something?

I apologize if you already answered this but still

>What does it take to become a truck driver? How long does it take to get your certifications and training done? How much does it cost?

>How are you paid and how much? I've heard some companies pay Cents per mile

>How often do you get assignments/shipments/job offers/whatever you call them?

>Is there a limit to how soon you can take an offer after you already completed one?

>Does it suck being on the road all the time?

>How dangerous is it? I've heard people try and kill truckers when they're sleeping and shit

>Do gay truck stops exist? Have you ever been approached to join one or have heard about them?

>Favorite and most hated thing about the job?
>>
>>743202306

how many immigrants you got hiding in the back?
>>
>>743218836
Hahah I love hearing about fantasy bed time stories, got any others?
>>
>>743219205
Google exists for this exact reason kid
>>
>>743219392
It's AMA thread, dipstick
>>
>>743219214
Nice try sneaky dot officer. What about the question how many do I NOT have?
>>
In the summer when it's hot, is there AC running to keep the cabin cool when you are sleeping and the trucks parked?
>>
How many times have you pulled the j-break just because it sounds sexy?
>>
>>743219462
Dipstick...ha
>>
>>743219570
If the truck is idling it stays cool. Unless you have some sorta upgrade that runs climate control separate.
>>
Any truckers get into an accident? Also have any of you considered driving a heavy duty tow truck?
>>
>>743219615
You don't "pull" a jake brake. You can switch it on, and usually I only do that when driving through a nieborhood around am hours of the morning.
>>
>>743220023
I know you don't literally pull it lol.

>I only do that when driving through a nieborhood around am hours of the morning
I like the way you think.
>>
>>743219866
Like a wrecker?
>>
>>743219205
Specifically gay truck stops don't exist, there are just gays every where.
>>
>>743219866
I had an impeccable safety record.....kindof a big deal when you're driving 105,500lbs down the road with litte tiny ignorant 4 wheeler drivers everywhere. No accidents here.

I like watching Highway Thru Hell.....Jamie Davis has a badass company. Not sure I'd like the lifestyle though.
>>
>>743220023
I'm guilty of doing this too. Or, alternatively, anywhere the jake was prohibited.

I just wanna watch the world burn.
>>
>>743219813
Does that mean you have to keep the truck running all night while you sleep to have the AC on? Wouldn't that suck fuel? Are the companies ok with that?
>>
>>743221019
A diesel engine uses almost nothing at idle..
>>
>>743220894
Great show, check out Outback truck drivers on Netflix. That's a whole new breed of driver there.
>>
>>743215116
Your wife has a dick.

Tried it, couldn't get into it.

Bogans playing out staged drama, seemed like.

Hahaha dagadagadagadagadagadaha
>>
>>743221184
Look pal, I know I'm a dick. She's stuck with me though, so she's making the best of it.
>>
>>743221222
I could see that, it's that whole walking barefoot in mud then hopping back in driving covered in mud for hours.... I'd let a dingo eat my baby before doing that job
>>
>>743221331
Like....by force stuck with you? Basement like?

fuck off with your 20 questions.

If you won't take time to read the thread then why the hell should he take time to answer the?

I spit on you fucker.
I hope you die today.

>>743221577
She's literally stuck to me. At the hip. We were born that way.

>>743203035
C O Z Y

Do you have electronic log or old fashioned book? I fucking hate filling these cunts out, but I imagine electronic logs are more of a pain in the ass.
>>
>>743221700
It's an AMA thread. Why would I google those things when there's a knowledgeable person readily available to answer those questions for me?

Also I love being spit on, so you just gave my a boner. And I'm going to use it to go fap to trap porn. How do you like that, faggot?
