Los Angeles, CA to Reno, NV

Another short run with no load out of Reno. Driving in LA is the worst, I had an SUV brake check me and I almost hit it. You run the risk of losing your CDL driving in so cal, mention that to the mega-carrier and they well just send you there even more, or leave you sitting at a truck stop with no load out of Reno.

I watched a nice sunset and lost 20 bucks gambling.

Oakland Airport to LAX, FedEx

I was really unhappy about this load. I knew it would be hectic and not pay well, I was right. I did make friends with the guy who escorted me in the airport and he gavr me a ride on the cool baggage pulling tractor thing.

This blogger app is flawed, I just wrote 2 paragraphs more and it decided to delete them. Oh well, I doubt anyone reads this anyways.

Reno, NV to Lathrop, CA

I drove through the hood today, it wasn't what I expected. I recommend the grilled chicken salad at frudruckers, it was amazing. I love when the people I work for schedule an appointment right when the shipper is on lunch, another joy of the mega-carrier career. I drove over donner pass for the first time this year, no chains required. Apparently I have been washing my hands too casually my entire life. The wall of guns was at a truck stop, pretty neat. yea, enjoy the pics.

Wilsonville, OR to Sparks, NV (again)

I have been wanting to get a shot of the 'lust drags you to hell' billboard that points towards the adult store for a while. Mission Accomplished. Some church put that billboard in their budget just to troll the adult store. cracks me up.

I saw a rainbow create a tree today, pretty sure that I can create my own religion now.

Even the truck stops in Nevada make you walk through a casino just to go to the restroom.

back to Reno NV from Sumner WA

Nice view this morning of fog over a city and what I believe is Mt. St. Helens poking into some rain clouds.
Also, how to dress like a professional truck driver, 2018 version. UPDATE: A very observant friend notice that he is wearing unmatched shoes. lol

Truck Stop Shower

Shower and a 5 dollar truck stop dinner. I drove 10.5 hours today, yet only about 550 miles. Thanks to California and the 55 mph speed limit. I went to Colorado once in the months I have worked here. I always go from southern California to Washington. I5 gets mighty boring. Slow, straight, bad road quality and jerk drivers.

Reno, NV to Redlands, CA

Long run down 395 with Clorox products. I have seen 2 accidents in truck stops, both are from people who pulled in the parking spot forward and were backing out of the spot.

the picture quality doesn't show the damage very well.
