GETTING LOST OR JUST EXPLORING?

Turn  right  on  the  unmarked  unpaved  dirt  road,  travel  4  miles  through  the  woods  until  you  see  the  paper  mill  on  your  right!  What?

 

“That was the directions that came across my Qualcom”,  one day back in 2003.   Needless to say I was hesitant to drive down that road in Illinois.  In the winter no less!    The directions this time was correct, ask any  Truck Driver and they will say that  Is the biggest stress factor In Truck Driving is getting lost!   “All of us have stories like this”,  and the frustration of being lost can sometimes stress a driver out. 

 

My first trip to  NYC I got lost for over six hours, and could not even find my location on the atlas.  Finally I found the interstate and got back to the new jersey turnpike toll plaza.   “I called the receiver and told them if you want your load come to me and I will follow you back into the city.”   Another time in Minnesota I could not find the shipper for two hours, it seems there was two streets with the same name!  

That time I quit driving my truck, and was so stressed out I walked away from the truck for 30 minutes to take a breather. Now the new truck driver has a neat little tool  GPS (global position system).  

 Have  you ever got a secretary on the phone who does not know how she drove to work?  Or  one who forgot to tell you about the low bridge just before the building?  These are some of the things we had to deal with back then. But today with a Good GPS unit you no longer have to deal with these problems, and you can concentrate on driving your truck.  

 

Now  I talk about buying things you don’t need for truck driving to save money,  but this tool is a must have  it is  the best tool to come out  for a truck driver in over 20 years.!  They used to call a road atlas the truck drivers Bible but now I say it is the the GPS unit.   This is one of the most important tool’s a trucker can have. So even if you dont buy it here on my my site get it before you start driving a Truck.                                GONZOTRUCKER
