    Don't go to Maverick. They pretty much did the same thing to @notarps4me

    Wait now Mon, If you have enough time in you can get with a smaller company that does not subject drivers to such B.S. Hold off on the Western thing.

    This Wilfred Brimley clone is @Dawgman on here. He signed up an account on here shortly before he died. (complications from heart surgery).

    He mentions Hannibal Lecter in the first video.

    Huh? I just checked it with Internet Exploder & they work. Or at least, ... I can see the embedded players. They're set as "unlisted" but not "private" on YouTube. If that's the problem, I'll set them to "public".

    Methinks the problem might be at your end though.

    No, not that. Who is he? Is it someone on here who died or something?

    Yeah. He didn't post much. I knew him for years though. He drove for Star in Morton, IL.

    I just thought it was funny the way he liked to make fun of his CPAP mask.

    boy the stupidity just keeps going on and on ....and here's something else that really don't make sence to me and I hope nobody takes offence to this but here goes.......they tried to market this didn't they forced it on the trucking industry...the trucking industry wont ever stick together....most of the time its hard to get five truckdrivers to agree on the same subject. when in reality it could be soooo different. I don't mean any disrespect to anybody we are who we are but if drivers would just stand up and stick together the industry would not be picked on nearly half as much. the business man pays the lobist to pass these laws so they can make people buy their product and who do they have in their sites ?...........truck drivers....why?.....because they wont stand up for their profession. im sorry no offence but 30+ years in this industry and I am one that has watched it happen from the deregulations in the 80's to the circus act that it has become and guys and gals its gonna get worse... has anybody actually ever sat down and read this CSA crap.....this is seriours stuff. everything from a blown light bulb to your weaight and body mass can cause you to lose your job. hell you can get 30 points if you leave your truck in a parking lot go home and someone comes along and hits it 30!!!!!!!!!!! points..... don't get me wrong here when I say some drivers.....need to be put out of the truck and we have all seen them. but this is clearly the industry (us) bowing down and letting the politicians run us over just to get more votes on their side and that's exactly what it amounts to. we clearly ALL get the blame for hell pretty much what ever they want to blame us for. THIS IS A HARD LIFE but i happen to love it for the challenges it presents the reward is usually nothing more than "i survived another day". its sure not for everybody i would bet money that 10 out of 12 new drivers quit within the first 6 months just because well its not for everybody and that is our bargaining chip in the game right there...... i hope i haven't offended anyone i don't mean to but if i can somehow put just an idea out there that may someday contribute to a turning point for this industry then that's what i mean to do. i love my truck its a machine i have rebuilt daily for the past 12 years its not beautiful but it is special because its mine. and i love late nights with my coffee cup and an open road to me there's nothing that can match that feeling. there is something we all love about this job or we wouldn't do it. i hope we can preserve it and not let the government and the money man turn it into a freak show....cpap.....what a freakin joke.

    CPAPers you have to sleep on your back or side for CPAP mask to stay on . . .
    Try buying a few more pillows and propping them around your head . . .
    It takes a while to get used to machine, few days, week or two . . .
    Yep it is B.S. but safety bureaucrats control the industry . . .
    Hang in there I went thru the same thing myself . . .

    My old man just got stuck with a damn CPAP. He drives transit bus. So far he complied 73% but it wasn't easy.
