    New driver here. I'm going to be doing a GP dedicated at Schneider. I'll be doing Big Island once a month.

    Apparently I need better directions going in. Was scraping guard rails all the way and peeing my pants!
    Thanks All!!

    Two legal routes. Either SR130 from the east or SR122 from the southwest. SR130 is a PITA, SR 122 is way easier. Most of the time you’ll end up taking 130 because 122 is normally way more out of route unless you’re coming from or heading southwest. Most of Schneider’s freight comes from or goes northeast out of big pain in the ### island.

    I believe 501 is restricted north of VA122...He may have tried to come down 501. Va 122 is a good route.

    Use your truck GPS , SNI made sure you’d take the legal route , quit taking short cuts and be prepared to lose signal phone and on your truck WiFi tablet ! Better write down the directions to get in and out.

    Follow the navigo routing. It is the legal way in and out.

    It is a curvy, tight road. The first time any driver takes it, they freak a little. Some more than a little. Just go slow, look ahead, and take the high side of the curve BEFORE you enter it.
