    Sleeping soundly is a good trait to have as a truck driver, but how do you get there?

    One of the biggest hurdles we had to conquer was sleeping in a truck, whether that be in a moving truck or a truck sitting it takes time and determination. This morning when I got up and looked out the window all of our neighbors had left and I never heard a thing. Our truck is quiet and I think that helps a lot to not hear trucks start, generators start, reefers start, or backup alarms.

    There are a few things that wake us up quickly and that is someone talking beside the truck, someone knocking on the door, and honking. Trucking is a twenty-four hour a day job and people are sleeping in their trucks day and night and it is really appreciated if people who want to have a conversation do so in front of their truck or in the restaurant.
