I am starting a new job in Portland, OR and coincidentally, my starting date falls the week after the major storm Harper has moved through the US. I have checked the weather and noticed that the storm seems to pass Chicago on Saturday but the temperatures will still be really cold.
I drive a 2015 VW Jetta and it only has two wheel drive. From doing some research, most people recommend driving to Denver on i80 then going north on i84. Is this the stupidest idea?
I do plan to pack an emergency kit; zero degree sleeping bag, tons of water and non perishable food items.
This trip can be postponed but not easily. I have allowed myself 4 full days and have the funds to stop and stay over night when necessary.
Any advice or even alternative route ideas would be appreciated! On top of that if anyone knows of a weather tracking site or app that like most, please share!
Just letting everyone on here know that all the fuel pumps are shut down and fenced off for what I assume is maintenance or putting in newer pumps at the TA in Ontario, Ca. You know, one of the busiest truck stops in the country...
Had someone try to fight me for the lane when they were merging onto the highway.
I was rolling east bound on 20 and some dude in a black Mercedes thought that it was my job to move over for him (and kill the people in the car on my left,) so he rode the shoulder for damn near a quarter mile.
Will hopefully be getting my CLP next week. I'm only 20 though, so getting trained is a little more confusing/difficult. All the schools around me refuse/say they only train people 21+ and most jobs, from my understanding, are looking to train and contract people who are 21+ as well. What's the best way for a younger fellow like me to get my CDL license?
This is just a friendly notice that Birmingham is shutting down Interstates 59/20 thru town, starting next week. They've got to replace 2 bridges, so it will be shut down for 14 months.... [*Insert crazy laughter here*.] So anyhow, if you can avoid it, please do not come to our fair city. If you get a load thru Birmingham, just take a detour thru Albuquerque, or someplace, I don't care.
Nah, in all seriousness, it will be shut down on BOTH sides, and this is where the 2 interstates (59 and 20) combine. So, if you are going straight thru town, it is not so bad. You can take the bypass (I-459) around town. However, if you are trying to connect to/from I-65, then you are SCREWED.. He, he, hee. Your only choice is to take back roads. Enjoy your stay in Bama, and Roll Tide.
