    At least it sparked some interest and increased the post count for the thread a bit.

    Gee... I got busy. Intended to come back and apologize. Didn't mean to ignore. Just got busy.
    Now? I missed all the circus! Doh!
    Tony was trying to get ahold of me yesterday. Emails...I sleep during day. Put phone on "Do Not Disturb". Tony's call came through anyway.... interesting. I wanted it.
    I am now officially coming back to Magnum. Ever since I told Tony yes. I've been so relaxed. I swear my blood pressure dropped.
    Now I got a ton to get done when I get home. Thursday is my last night in the Oil Fields. Got a week to get a ton done at home. Show up on Monday the 23rd.
    I'm so relaxed.... I can't believe it.

    Almost had a tow truck take out my left mirror last night at the start of my shift. Had a OTR trucker clip and buckle my right mirror this morning in a construction zone. Trucks left lane, he was in the right, swerved into my lane. I stopped outside of construction zone to assess damages. He didn't. Went looking for him at the rest area and no go. Pretty lame thing to have on my DAC.

    WesternPlains, that's the week I'm hoping to be back up to Fargo. See ya up there!
    Dang, does this mean the thread is getting quieter now? I guess the moderators do eavesdrop on posts and threads...

    I wouldn't call it eavesdropping but we do read the threads just like you do.

    To answer the original concern, in case anybody is thinking of applying,

    We have forward facing cameras only. Safety can see what you're seeing at anytime. They're not going to bother unless you're one of those drivers who get all the alarms going on a regular basis. Traction control seems to be the biggy in my experience, and rightly so. Had a few trainees take corners way too fast.

    Interior facing cameras were fitted in a couple of trucks years ago, then removed. Company found they were no benefit.

    The mic on the a-frame is for connecting your cell to the truck nav system to make phone calls without a headset. Sounds like you're in a tin can, I never use it. Could it be turned on and off remotely ? Sure, I suppose. Don't see the point without a interior camera though.

    Personally, I think the office in Fargo has waaaaaay more important things to do with their time than sitting around listening to what drivers are saying inside their trucks...
