    Well, we just got Schneider backed in next to us, so we are safe to hit the bunks, told Mike if he turns off the AC during the night while I'm on that top rack I'm going to wake him with a kick to the dangles. He's got 5 kids, so not like he needs them at this point lol.

    45, 90, what do you call it when it’s the last door on the left, with no room in front, or the side. You have to turn left around the corner and jack it all the way around? That’s my favorite. I just call it having to jack it around. Lol.

    I just bumped the dock. I did the usual 45 maneuver. Too much more and I have to open my door, sometimes put my foot out on the step, Cant twist my back, it can be a problem sometimes, while trying to be ready to push clutch in, while watching the trailer next to me. I had a real workout the other day in Miami. Delivery and P/U. The delivery was so tight, had to jack it just right, then drop trailer with Tractor at an angle. Needed to grease fifth wheel anyways. P/U had Me turning around twice, backing into tight spots, then into dock. Then when finally got Loaded, I was so excited, I pulled out, to seal it, and slide axles. That’s when I realized I pulled out the wrong way, and was facing the entrance only Gate. So I had to blindside into a 2 spot dock space, (made it easy) to turn around, and get pointed in the right direction!!

    Headed from Indy to Charlotte. 600 miles, got 19 hrs. I think I can make it. Sleep good tonight with the Truck off. Never did see all the Traffic that I expected. A couple Campers w/o lights. A boat and a Uhaul blow out tires, The usual. But not a lot of Travelers. And not many Trucks. Plenty of Parking spots. Just happy to miss all the weather events going on.

    I know the door you speak of. I call it "the hard on clutch, power steering and steer tire door".
