@lightlyanchored here is a better example of how these loads can shift and slide through the back of the cab of the truck.. If a headache rack is in place, it can sometimes help slow down the impact or stop the load from going through the cab and killing the driver.. This is why load securement, good driving habits are very important.. But also people driving cars and cutting off trucks and not giving trucks enough space contributes to a lot of these accidents.. Cars waiting til the last minute to exit and cutting a truck off forcing the driver to slam on brakes to prevent from hitting them can cause these loads to shift.. Everyone has to play a part in safety to ensure everyone stays alive and make it to their loved ones.. #trucking #truckersjourney #truckdriver #trucker #truth #roadlife #journey #inmotion #lifeontheroad #overtheroad #otr #eachoneteachone

Trucking home, deadheading 700 miles and park it for the holidays.. completed my last run for the year; taking off until after New Years..It’s been a great year.. Lots of planning to do over the next few weeks, looking to grow & expand a little in 2016.. Stay focused, stay determined and succeeding! Embrace the journey of learning curves and keep pushing.. Always remember, trucking is what you make it, figure out your lane, define your niche & master it.. Never allow yourself to get boxed in.. Early in my career I learned a bit of everything from van, reefer, flatbed, steps, auto haul, etc so I’d always have options.. Always remember, a rich person in business is a person with options.. When I decided to get my own, I allowed myself to be versatile and adjust hauling different freight when needed.. Stay wide, learn as much as you can and create the life you always wanted! #trucking #truckin #truckersjourney #truckinglife #truckdriver #trucker #roadlife #journey #lifeontheroad #overtheroad #otr #inmotion

I’m in an 18 wheeler and this fella is riding s bicycle.. We’re both on s stretch of nothingness… Everyone is on their own journey in life; in someway shape or form. Large or small. Good or bad. The road to greatness is a dark and lonely one lit only at intervals by other great figures. Sometimes friend or foe but always a welcomed sight.. #trucking #truckersjourney #trucker #truckdriver #roadlife #journey #lifeontheroad #overtheroad #otr #truckinglifestyle #roadlife #inmotion #thoughts

Life and nature shows no mercy…. Chaos & mishaps for one can mean opportunity for another.. These were my thoughts while watching this bird on this truck next to me enjoy a bug feast with no effort at all on his part.. All he had to do was show up and seize the moment lol.. #trucking #truckinglife #truckersjourney #truckdriver #trucker #roadlife #journey #lifeontheroad #inmotion #overtheroad #otr #nature #peterbilt #clouds #blackwhite

Tonight is a cash price night.. sometimes it’s with a card & sometimes it’s cash.. The thing with cards is paper trails just in case someone wants to dig for your movement. And well, maybe I just don’t want everyone knowing how I’m moving lol… #trucking #truckersjourney #roadlife #journey #truckinglife #truckdriver #trucker #kenworth #bigtruck

Lookout Pass, Idaho ….. going to the top of some of these elevations, you never know what to expect.. It’s a reason some states require you to carry chains until the end of May.. #trucking #truckersjourney #truckdriver #trucker #truckinglife #roadlife #overtheroad #otr #journey #lifeontheroad #inmotion #idaho #lookoutpass #snow #travel #places

on the Vegas strip heading to the convention center to grab a load from a trade show they had earlier this week to get me closer to my next military base.. sometimes I’ll deadhead to where I need to go depending on the urgency; and sometimes I’ll find loads going the same direction that are easy to get on and get off.. plus it adds to the coins which is never a bad thing.. #trucking #truckersjourney #truckdriver #trucker #truckerslife #truckinglife #roadlife #journey #lifeontheroad #inmotion #overtheroad #otr #lasvegas #vegas #thestrip

Seeing different areas of the country and different things most people don’t or never get a chance to see is one of the main reasons my perspective on life is different.. I appreciate every moment. #roadlife #trucking #truckersjourney #truckdriver #truckerslife #trucker #overtheroad #otr #inmotion #lifeontheroad #journey #travel #places

55mph for trucks in California.. Some people hate it, others don’t mind it.. me, I don’t mind it.. Gives me a chance to relax even. I remember when Ohio was a 55mph state for trucks & they’d pull you for running 57 or 58 at times. Not all the time but often enough where some troopers we’re that strict. I’ve gotten pulled in Ohio at that time for running 58 so I’m speaking from experience.. The crazy part about it then was the tickets didn’t go on your license, they just wanted the money.. Ohio has since changed and it’s one speed limit for everyone now.. But I remember during that time, many drivers hated running across Ohio. The split speed limits have always been a concern amongst drivers, the industry & citizens even.. In states where truck speeds are 55 but car speed limits are 65 or 70, it can cause all types of chaos on the highways.. So when you’re driving your car and wondering why trucks are going so slow in some states, pay attention to the speed limit signs because it just may be a “split speed limit” state between cars & commercial vehicles.. #trucking #truckersjourney #roadlife #truckingindustry #truckdriver #speedlimit #otr #overtheroad #america #truckinglife #lifeontheroad

“Adin Supply Co Since 1905 - Starbucks is 70 miles away. Our coffee will get you there.”….. I’m always taking some back road through small towns when the mood strikes me and I have the time in between trips. I prefer the back roads because it’s no telling what you’ll discover along the journey. #trucking #TruckersJourney #trucker #truckdriver #truckinglife #roadlife #inmotion #truckinglifestyle #bigtruck #iphoneography #thoughts #mindfood #smalltown

fueling up; get a good fill up on Arizona which will get me 1200 miles before I’ll grab another fill, which will be over around Dallas TX…. This is a good all night worth of cruising on non hilly terrain… All of that plays a part in maximizing good fuel mileage… #trucking #truckinglife #truckersjourney #trucking #truckdriver #lifeontheroad #overtheroad #coasttocoast #journey #inmotion #semi #18wheeler
