Well I got initiated into the new order of trucking this week. Lots of changes out there since 1981. Yep been a few years since I did any serious interstate trucking. I have a little electronic gizmo called PrePass that is read electronically as I am approaching a port of entry. RED light means pull in - GREEN light means keep on down the road. Got a fuel card and driver ID for fueling, makes it quick and easy. No digging around for each states fuel permit. Truck stops are overgrown convenience stores. Swift, Schneider and England drivers wear flip flops, shorts and tank tops. Some wear Turbans most don't speak too good the English. Other than that i did fine. 1400 miles and three states in 60 hours and made $490.00. Arizona, New mexico and Texas just a gettin it on.
