    Yea.. Ima tough guy and can do almost anything.. It takes alot for me to quit or give up.. Ill try to tough it out as long as I can.. At least ill have someone with me tho to spot as I back up cause I need more practice on that lol.. Also 4 eyes are better than 2 ya know.. Even if I'm out 6 months with someone else maybe after those 6 months I can find a regional job and be home with my daughter and wife more, which is my ultimate goal..

    I would suggest leaving the CB on when parking in the TS... if you are about to bump something you shouldn't be bumping, usually another driver will let you know.

    Had people guide me in over a radio in a tight spot on occasion too.

    I never back into tight spots in the trk stop after driving 11 long grueling hours thats when mistakes happen for the rookies and vets I just ki da make my own parking space all they can do is ask you to move..

    Just like KMac said, Eailier this week at the pilot in Oak creek Wi. I heard on the radio a driver yelling over the cb about a guy backing in next to him, Well this guy didnt hear or have his cb on and didnt hear the horn and proceded to crush this guys hood.

    and you run and you run to catch up with the sun...., but it's sinking. Racing around to come up behind you again. The sun is the same in a relative way but your older. Shorter of breath, and one day closer to death. Ahhh good times
