    Rooster was happy... now not so much...a/c nice and cool, dispatch to pick up in Rogers, deliver in Laredo, over 800 miles... leave the yard and dpf failure before I get to Arkansas.

    Truck refused to do a parked regen... back to Jopmo, load unassigned...

    If the shop can fix it by tomorrow, I might be able to salvage the week and month...

    Sounds like it's time to trade in that truck.

    If I could have passed a D.O.T. physical, I would have liked to have gone to a truck driving school to learn how to drive a truck. I would have liked to have been able to drive OTR to all 48 states and Canada.

    I am working at trying to pass a D.O.T. physical. Only time will tell on this.

    CFI would have been one of my choices to apply for an OTR job.

    CFI goes to all 48 states & Canada and is dry freight. I do realize that a hazmat endorsement is required. From what I understand, the miles are quite decent.

    I do realize that the deadlines and time requirements can be and often are quite strict.

    I have never married and never had any children. I live in an apartment which would allow me to be away for extended periods of time.

    SADLY & UNFORTUNATELY, both of my parents passed away long ago. I no longer have the parental eldercare responsibilities that my 2 sisters and I once had.

    As for work history, I have been at my current job for 10 years, (since 2007).

    As for my MVR, I have not had any moving violations or speeding tickets in 10 years, (since 2007).

    NOTE:

    Between 1974 to 2007, I had several speeding tickets, several running red lights, 1 failure to yield right of way, and 1 passing a school bus with red flashers on. FORTUNATELY & THANKFULLY, no children were hit or injured.

    I had 1 no fault accident back in 2014. I did NOT report it to the police, but it is on insurance company records.

    I had 1 no fault accident back in 2010. It was reported to the police, along with being on insurance company records.

    I had 1 at fault accident back in 1995. I was speeding and went through a red light, hitting someone. FORTUNATELY & THANKFULLY, that individual did recover.

    I have never smoked and never used or tried drugs. It has been years since I have used any over the counter, (OTC), remedies. This way, there is little to no chance of any false positives random when drug testing comes around.

    I don't even eat poppy seeded bagels. I am not sure if there is any truth to this, but I have been told that the poppy seeds can trigger a false positive on a random drug test.

    What little drinking that I did, I gave up many years ago. Truth be told, I have no tolerance for alcohol at all. One can of beer make me legally drunk. Just to be on the safe side, I no longer touch the stuff.

    FORTUNATELY & THANKFULLY, I have never been arrested or convicted of any crimes at all.

    If I were able to ever drive for CFI, I would POSSIBLY go as far as to move to Joplin Missouri, renting an apartment or room, near the main terminal, to be close by for home time.
    I currently live in Wichita KS, which I understand is still in CFI's hiring area.

    God bless every American and their families! God bless the U.S.A.!

    Thank you for your post, I'm not sure there is a question in there. I recommend contacting recruiting to ask about your driving record I don't know the answers. Also don't quite understand why you're working on getting a DOT physical seems like it oughta be pretty cut-and-dry.

    Also you shouldn't have to relocate in order to get home time, I live in Florida and don't have any problems.

    BEST OF LUCK TO YOU

    I failed the D.O.T. physical twice. I am working hard to improve my heath and well being to be able to pass the D.O.T. physical the next time around.

    God bless every American and their families! God bless the U.S.A.!
