Truck drivers are getting worn down.

I've been non stop in the SW region of the US hauling Walmart trailers exclusively from their distribution center outside of Barstow to the Walmart's in Las Vegas and the Pahrump, NV. trying to keep the food and goods flowing.

I'm now on my 34 hour reset because I ran out of service hours, so I finally get a break and my truck is due for it's B service.

Thank you everyone for your support for us truckers in these trying times.

they're allowing us to use their facilities to clean up, allowing us to park our trucks in their lots to get some sleep and they're paying top mileage rates.

82. I retired last year as an ORT driver.

Walmart use to be my alternative to park/rest overnight when the truck and rest stops were full. I would also stock up on supplies. Right around the time I retired, some of the Walmarts were starting to ban this practice by putting parking boots on the trucks. Glad to see they're truck friendly again..

glad I don't have to anymore. I've been off the road for over three years. I got an email from my former employer looking for drivers last week, after not hearing from them for a couple of years. Then I got a recruitment banner from UPS, which is unheard of.

Drive safe out there.

35. My son-in-law is a trucker; my daughter a safety and compliance manager ...

All I can say is thank God for the hours of service rules, or these drivers would be run ragged. Son-in-law drives a dedicated route from KC area to Colorado and back. Daughter monitors electronic logs and makes sure those truckers (both men and women) get their rest and restarts. If it wasn't for truckers, we would be in sad shape.

Be kind to truckers ... they are keeping us alive!

I'm going to have her washed at the Peterbilt facility after her B service and I'll clean her inside also, then I'll bobtail back to Walmart, pick up an empty and dead head back to Barstow.

Stay safe out there fellow road warrior.

I'm especially glad that you guys are getting so much work, after Idiot Amin screwed you over so badly with the tax ripoff of 2017. A lot of you have been taking some hard hits that you did not deserve.

70. Thanks again for everything you are doing for all of us!! I mentioned a couple of

weeks ago that I work in an industry that directly supplies the trucking industry, and our production has been halted temporarily, but I'm certainly hoping that won't last long. Beyond my own selfish desires for wanting to back to work, I want to make sure that you all have the necessary logistical support in terms of your equipment! You play an essential role in getting food on my table, amongst countless other things, and maintaining those supply lines is vital.

85. Relief can be on the way soon.

There's a ton of drivers out there who normally haul things like steel, glass, other stuff.. stuff not essential to daily living. Car plants have shut down, thus they don't need parts. Parts manufacturers don't need raw materials... Steel plants have no customers .. that whole supply chain is shutting down. Dock workers and factory line employees are being sent home. Drivers will be idled and maybe sent home too. The drivers would be happy enough to swap their flatbeds for dry vans and reefers and help out.

90. Back in the 60's a trucker picked me up when I was hitchhiking home from school.

He treated me to lunch and took me quite as far as he could. He also explained how dangerous it was because of poor drivers. How long his stopping distance was etc. I keep this in mind all the time. I don't forget to flash my lights when they're safely past me.

99. Hey dware,

Are you aware of any way an average person can help truck drivers during this time. Donations of cash or assistance? Maybe a fund could be set up to contribute to the truck repair and service outfits to defray costs to drivers? Assistance to drivers families? What else could we do?

Thank you for your service.

113. Thank you. I'll keep buying the stuff you deliver.

Today: a car battery, seasoned fries, supreme pizza, and disposable razors. I might have been the only person in the Walmart without toilet paper or paper towels in my basket.

I had gone there last night too, but I left not knowing which car battery was the one I should get. I figured that out this morning and went back this afternoon. If anyone there had CV, then I've got lots of company. It's flat out astonishing how many of the shelves are barren.

115. truckers always do the difficult job of keeping the country quietly moving...

...while asking for little credit. It's a difficult job & they're not the only ones who sacrifice, their spouses & families also are deprived from seeing each other at times. I know, my dad was a truck driver who died while driving a truck.

Thank you truckers for being the heroes you are!

Another reason people should not hoard. Truckers who deliver all this stuff that they're hoarding are exhausted!

Thank you for all you do! Get some rest, wash your hands a lot and take care of yourself and your family - and know your work is IMPORTANT and appreciated!

122. THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR THE KIND WORDS AND SUPPORT,

I am overwhelmed with humbleness by all the support I'm getting from this great community, with this kind of support, we will beat this virus and the Mango Menace in Nov.

Please give thanks to all of our frontline responders who are doing all they can to get thru these trying times and get our country back on track, despite what the Mango Menace and his minions are doing to sabotage it.

I LOVE YOU ALL!!!!
