ahhh lot lizzards. those look a little too clean to be lizzards.


On a side note I will never forget the phone call I got in dispatch that one of my drivers was in TN and tried to pick up a lot lizard that was a cop and got arrested Our company bailed him out and then the next phone call I got from him was that his wife was making him quit when he got home.

NYC sucks in a truck. I went there to help out one time when that yard went on strike. Let me tell you lower manhattan in a garbage truck is less fun than a root canal.

Yes. It went way back in. Constant 40 some degrees. Makes for great cold storage. It was a bitch with the pillars all over.

Any interesting pictures from your time on the road (hopefully you will have pulled off and parked before taking said pictures of course ).

Could you imagine waking up to this every morning?






Comming into Vegas






I LOVE this picture. Just happened to be crossing a bridge right before this guy went underneath. Photo taken out passenger window, while driving at 65 down the highway.


Got passed by a plane.











These pictures suck, but it was very "gotham city" feeling to me.





I really like this one. Taken while in Utah, from the drivers seat, while doing 65 down the road.



I had a tendency of trying to make music videos while I was driving down the road, but I'll spare you all of that.

Most likely, a lot of businesses are built into caves in Missouri too.

Yeah, there was dentist offices, a tennis court, gyms (think YMCA style). I had more pictures, but they are on my old laptop that I can't turn on. It was one of my 1st loads since I had gone solo, so I was a little awe struck.

I'll be joining the OTR scene again within the next week or so. Got into a gig running a flatbed in a regional position. Pays more than i was making with CT. I did a small amount of time OTR at the beginning of my career but just got started with the wrong company. Hopefully this new job will be way better.

Nice pics of the cave, i've been there when i was younger with my dad. Are they paying you miles or a %?? I want to get into driving but not sure how to bump my class b into class a. My dad claims if i get my permit he'll teach me in his rig but i dont want the responsibility of paying for a clutch. Thought about going to a school that the company would pay for ( like schnieder or werner)...Do they offer you a dedicated route or make you be OTR for a certain amount of time?

That's a great song!! I currently don't drive truck, but their is Diesel fuel in my blood. My uncle put over a million miles on his truck with out any major overhauls. When I was younger I went with him every chance I got, I really miss him.
