;-) HAPPY HOLIDAYS

The Truckers Thro

TRUCKING CAN BE A TRIP

DRIVING SLEEPY CAN BE A TRIP


Isn't it enough,  that professional Truckers get pushed to the absolute limit sometimes by people sitting behind a telephone and a desk. "you gonna be on time with that ...right?"

So Truckers have the longest while literally drove themselves to the grave by pushing the envelope. That envelope being how far can you go, how long can you stay awake to get the job done and to get that load here on time.  There are a load of rumors out there of what Truckers were willing to do to stay up and alert for a few more hours. 

However on the other side of the highway, there are few things that contribute to sleepiness. 


 So lets deal with just one for now. something called tryptophan.        Ever noticed how most folks feel slightly sleepy after Thanksgiving dinner its because turkey is high in tryptophan. But does it really make you tired? The connection isn’t quite so direct.

L-tryptophan (the full name) is an amino acid that's also found in foods like chicken, meat, cheese, yogurt, eggs and fish. Your body uses tryptophan and turns it into something called Niacin.  Tryptophan is just one of many different amino acids that are contained in foods like turkey 

Niacin very important in creating Serotonin, that's associated with sleep and melatonin levels . That’s we get the whole “Thanksgiving dinner makes you tired” connection .




DOT INSPECTION

If you have or ever had a CDL, then you already know. DOT inspections can be a 50-50 tossup. watch this driver and what he ha to deal with. What should you do to avoid this happening to you?

JUST FOR GIGGLES

Its not really funny. Just because you drive a Truck doesn't make you a Truck driver. There's TRAINING and there's training. Picking up and dropping off a load is just the end result. The real job is getting it there safely.
