I'm back on the road!

I started a new blog since I'm not driving for Gordon anymore. I needed to pick a more generic name in case I change companies in the future so I don't have to make another new blog. So make your way to my new blog @ http://www.truckerchris.blogspot.com and check out the new photos and stories about my new journey with Conway Truckload.

BTW, I'm featured in this months ROADKING magazine put out by TA Truckstops. I was flipping through the magazine last night and I didn't notice it at first, but theres a photo of my blog and a link to it on page 32 and 33. I'm stoked, thanks ROADKING!!!

Just checking in...

Last week I made the drive from here in Sacramento up to Albany,OR to visit my friends I haven't seen in quite a while since I quit at GTI. It was a bittersweet drive on my old route. I still know every twist and turn, where the bears hide and everything is still the same. My friend still drives for gordon and I jumped in his truck. Man, my peterbilt is TINY compared to that freightliner thats for sure. I miss the road. Local isn't all that it's cracked up to be...

One of my favorite spots on 5 just north of the "canyon"

The canyon starts just north of Redding and go all the way to Weed. It's my favorite part of the entire Interstate 5. Tight turns, big trees and awesome views of Shasta and the Crags.

It's been awhile....

Yes, I'm still alive...

Not a whole lot new around here. I've been doing the same loop for the past month pretty much until this week when I had some 14hr days and drove nearly 500 miles which is pretty good for us. I've gotten used to this job and don't dislike it as much as I did when I first started that's for sure, but it sure isn't like long haul.

I'm half way done with all my dental work (the only thing holding me back from going back out on the road) and I'm very happy about that. When I'm all finished I can pretty much pack up and go back on the road whenever I want. It will be by April '08 for sure if not sooner. More details to follow on that later.

In August I went to the Hot August Nights Truckerfest truck show in Reno. Here's a couple photos...

On the weekend's I've been spending a lot of time riding my atv. We all go ride up in the Foothills riding trails all day long. Theres nothing better than being out in the middle of a forest all alone listening to the sound of "nothing" after being stuck in a truck all week!

This is a video of me on Labor Day @ Foresthill.

That's it for now. We just had our first rain storm of the season and I can't wait for it to snow. It's going to be a fun winter tearing up the trails on the snowmobiles!

New trucks and New photos

I recently switched trucks from #31 to #38 and #66 and finally I'm now permanently seated in #86. 86 is a 2000 Peterbilt 385 with the new "corvette" dash and steering wheel along with a cd player. I love my XM but it's nice having a cd player agian. I'm not saying when, but I did receive an application for Marten trucking and......well, I'll update all of you next month =)

Dumping in Martell,CA near Jackson in #38 all polished out!

Dumping again at Martell only this time in #66 which is a KW T800.

How's this for PERFECT?

I bet you've never seen the inside of an empty chip trailer before!

Empty trailers parked in the Lincoln Mill.

Hello there.

Summertime in the Gold Country...

It's HOTT, so hot I added another "T" because yes, it's that hot and I love it. (as long as I don't blow up my serpentine belt and leave me stranded on the side of the road for 5 hours!) Theres not a lot of new things happening around here, pretty much the same runs from the Mill to Customer and back. I went to the DMV to get my Hazmat endorsement. That doesn't mean I'm switching jobs from Local to OTR or even to another Local job, but it takes months to get background checks from the FBI and States to clear and then I'll recieve the new license. Around here, a lot of the better paying jobs require hazmat even though you might not haul hazmat all that often. Just looking into the future, ya know?

Welcome to my office.

Loaded up with White Fire Chips headed back to the Lincoln,CA Mill to be dumped and reloaded back onto rail cars to be shipped throughout the country.

That's me...

Almost perfect although not legal. Although it's a lot more legal than when I loaded last week, a whopping 92,000LBS. Let's just say I had to dump some off before I roll...doh!

Keep the shiny side up!
