    Got empty in Pleasanton yesterday morning. On my way down to Los Angeles to reload going to Fort Worth for Monday. Will need a reset which I’ll start in Phoenix tonight. I’m thinking to call in and ask them if they want me to idle this truck for 34 hours straight in the 115 degree heat or pay for a motel. Pretty sure I know which way they’ll go with the request.
     
    Lonesome Thanks this.

    Lol a Phoenix 34 was the first time I ever experienced a parked regen. I thought something was going very wrong. Might have even turned the key off, but I definitely called the breakdown number of the company I was with at the time.

    When they explained what a regen was, I was like man, you'd think that would have been something the company would have wanted to tell me at some point.

    The truck didn't have a DEF tank. I guess somewhere in the emissions timeline, there were trucks with a DPF but no DEF.
     
    Finfn1372 and mitrucker Thank this.

    Getting 4 new trailer tires at Loves which means I won't get to move the rest of my stuff out of the loaner on my 10 tonight. Hopefully tomorrow night on my next 10

    Thanks to whoever dropped this empty at a customer for someone to pick up loaded with obviously ####ed up tires, each one that would be OOS in an inspection

    I definitely admit that it was my fault when rushing between trucks to not grab my shower stuff and clean clothes because "I'll just be right back here for my 10"

    Guess I'm gonna pay truck stop prices for some shampoo and toothpaste and then put these sweaty clothes back on

    Great job on the filming. I’m not getting involved with a discussion about showing new hires or trainees the real places we visit.
     
    Lonesome and Finfn1372 Thank this.
