    You shouldn't rush these things...weather is crappy. Rolled into Joplin today, Turned down an isle to drop my trailer and take the tractor to the shop. I wanted to go right. truck and trailer had differing attitudes. What I thought was wet was actually glare ice. I was only doing 5mph, if I had been going 10, I would have hit the light pole and I would be a facebook star. I wonder if I can deliver this load going to Iowa via the simulator...

    Keep up the good work. you will be terrorizing America before you know it.

    Will be in nogales ar in a few. Has anyone tried those rubber seat cushion things in Petros and ta? Not the purple one. Debating on getting one. These new truck seats are not nearly as comfy

    Don't worry about auto/manual. Hours can be a grind.
    If you manage your time with good trip planning you can work in a long nap most days.

    Gotta respectfully disagree. The world is going automatic.

    Agreed... don’t get me wrong, if for any reason in the future I would change companies, I could always go back to get the restriction removed... if the company I would be going to doesn’t have automatics by that point...
