Finally after being idle for 4 weeks I have an interview with a truck company in Dixon. Gonna have to put everything back in storage since EDD wont' give me any money to live on. The job runs from California to Oregon, Nevada and Arizona. Not sure yet exactly what i will be hauling, find out Friday morning at 9am. I think it's either gonna be lumber or sheet rock. Newer Peterbilts with step-deck trailers. Here's hoping this one will take. Going crazy with nothing to do and no money to live on.

Hang in there Allen, it seems like you should be eligible for unemployment under your circumstances. I hope you have a good interview.

You would think so but the lady acted like I was gonna take the money out of her pocket. Anyway the interview went good, was asked to do a drug test in Sacramento so I got that done. Just have to wait till Monday and call them back at noon to see if the results came back. The dispatcher says with 22 years of hauling lumber I should have no problems doing their job.

They haul just about anything you can put on a deck from; lumber, sheet rock, bricks, building material, steel rebar, and if it get slow go down into the valley and pick up crates of fruit and vegetables and deliver them. In the winter they haul hay from California to Nevada. So it looks like I will be pretty busy, work all week, get in Friday afternoon then have 34 hrs off before I can restart my 70 hours. Then leave out Sunday morning to get to my Monday morning delivery area.

When I got back to Santa Rosa another company called and wants me to come in for an interview Tuesday at 10am. It's a bit easier, load up out of the north and deliver to Los Angeles, Hayward or Sacramento. Home by Friday then hit the road Sunday morning. Both pay by the load.

Sounds promising Allen! Personally, I like the one where you get to travel further but that's just me. That may land you down in my area sometimes and we have plenty of parking and there's an AM/PM with scales, parking, and a truck stop about a mile up the road

Not sure whether I will go as far south as you Roger but they have a terminal at 7875 East Telegraph Pico Rivera. Just depends on where I need to deliver. The boss says he's looking for a line driver to deliver to the different terminals. They are in Sacramento, Hayward, Fresno, Pico Rivera, CA with a terminal in Chandler, AZ. Supposed to haul lumber south and bring steel back.

This last Friday (31st) I drove over to Dixon for an interview, drive test and a drug test. the results should be in shortly. Today I went to Santa Rosa and also did an interview, drug test and driving test.
Got to drive my very first automatic and I didn't care for it one bit. After driving a manual transmission for so long it was strange to not have to step on the clutch or shift the gears. Plus the hesitation was terrible. No gear shift just a plastic arm sticking out on the right side of the steering wheel, R N D 1 and thats it. Put it in gear and wait about 15 seconds for the truck to lurch forward. It will definitely take some getting used to. Just have to wait now for the drug test to come back. I am hoping for the Santa Rosa job to come thru first. Still waiting for EDD to send me some money. Can't go anywhere even if they did call back, the trucks on empty.

It's a cool 53* and cloudy right now here in Cloverdale at 6:15 am, supposed to hit 95* today and 99* for the weekend. Terrible weather to move in, right now would be the perfect time.
