Going Full Circle - Transporting Cement Walls

Unread postby jjbaker » Sat Sep 05, 2015 10:06 am

Been driving a 40 ton truck for the last week as part of my CDL special transports training - to get back into trucking.
Some luck (as you know, I have no skills) got me a job offer from the outfit and I get to drive one of these yellow beasts on demand now.

I finally get to truck the things I have so much experience beating my head into for the last 5+ years.

Thank you, aviation people! I seriously never thought that mentioning seaplaneforum.com, gliderforum.com and the now closed aerobaticsforum.com would ever benefit me in my job search. I could finally say the ultimate 9 words that got me the job.

Yes Sir! I have experience dealing with cement walls.

So is there a "Cement Wall Trucker" forum in the future, kind of like Ice Truckers. Good luck with the new job and drive safely.

Probably not. I had forgotten how much fun driving trucks is.
Done this kind of stuff 19 years ago with completely different equipment.
I'll be the first and only no superstar aviation forum owner who gets to be a trucker in real life... :lol:
