Thirteen international part of a driver's job is to know their equipment inside out. Thirteen speeds sleeper hundred. Four fifty five Walsh Angie with three million six hundred forty two thousand six hundred eighty miles on so today. We'll be taking questions about engines. Gears brakes lights in all else you might want to know about the truck itself over the years of the known to Marcy Radnor Avenue in a peterbilt. Today's Ingrid Brown had no hailing from the Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina. Pratima Kennedy. No come on. I've been a driver in. Breyer now. Company governor for forty plus years. Okay let's get into Hi. This is Elizabeth from San Antonio Texas. I I have a lot of questions about trucking. I I guess is how many gears you have drive a manual transmission myself and I remember when I learned that someone told me that have like eighteen years and I wanNA know if that's true. I mean good yes it is true I have eighteen years as it called an eighteen speed And you have a low range and you have a high range so picture. Typical manuals shifts in the car but three times as long with almost twice as many gear positions. On top of that. You've got a selector switch called a splitter that allows you to move between the low range and the high range and the low ranges when you're taking all when you're something heavy you know to start off far up hill or anything And then as you pick up speed then it goes into the top. The high range classic ten speed bicycle has its five main gears in rear and front shift or two. Now it just switch gears should add that. Not all trucks have so many speeds. You also have your nines tens palms I trump all depends on the needs and desires of the truck's owner ultimately the higher the number of speeds more versatility. You have in how you. Ho- what you hall and where you haul it good evening. My name is landon. Williams Out in Milford Pennsylvania. The next question is related but a little more complicated and Sometimes when we go uphills the truck drivers will typically slowdown to so low. I'm not really sure what's going on there. I'm not sure if that's a transmission savor what's going on there thank you well. Why don't they reason that we slow down is because we have such heavyweights gravity's GonNa pull you backward and slow you down and that transmission starts dropping gear so that it hits right horse power to get the the truck trader up the hill? So say they'll turn their flashers on so that you're protected and and you understand wound slowing down okay. One more about speed Halley from Indiana and I was curious why trucks will drive the exact same speech and not let cards cats. So why truckers did that. Well I trucks are governed not all a lot of trucks and energy company trucks are governed meaning the top speed is actually limited by the trucks. Computer I can't go over sixty to sixty five sixty seven sixty eight. Well you may have a truck. That's one or two miles above the next truck. They hit a he'll one truck slows down because of the weight and then other trump goes around to pass him but now he's four or five miles per hour faster. Get CLEAR OF THE HILL. And they're back down to just one or two mile an hour so now they're fed by side trying to get past the one that's holding them down on the hill so basically be patient. That's it you know. It's it's it's about the patience of everything with us. We definitely are not out here trying to get in anyone's way we're trying to get out of your way more than anything. Okay next copper. Just a second. I have to show this mercy. One ABOUT PATIENTS. Thirty six sorry parking Hi My name's Blake from Delray. Beach Florida I often have to drive from del Rey Tampa at night and it always wondered why the trucks have so many lights on them like does indicate anything or just kind of like a way to indicate your own personal style. Thanks well if that's something that's been a personal preference and in the air forever like to add like we're talking about those little amber bulbs that some of US call chicken lights and also lights up around our truck at night. You can see a shadow of a car in your life that reflect off the ground and I started snowing. Jane exact thing more like the more visible than more visible. The more you're able and you're out of harm's way for us to maneuver okay. Moving on hi My name is trip. I live in wake forest North Carolina. I love this next one every now and again. I'll hear a tractor trailer. It'll just sort of roar. And I think it's called engine braking but I don't really know what it is. So what does that? Kinda loud farting fan. Thanks oh in the trucking worldwide. Call that a jake brake lights. Jat a jake brake and it is known as an engine break and and It what it does is it literally uses the pressure through the motor and it slows the engine down. And it's actually an extra biking mechanism for protectors tractors and trailers burst of compressed. Gas Releases from the cylinders can be very loud on some trucks. That's IT farting sound trip. Was talking about that Roaring San. We kind of think it sounds pretty neat and That's part of the diesel soul in your blood. They ought thing and again. It also is a fantastic warning time for people so if you hear that sound focus close on the road ahead because rig with much better visibility than us putting on the brakes. Hi My name is Glenn. I live in the catskill mountains of New York. Okay Ingrid last question for you here. I've wondered why truckers never turn lost their trucks. I mean get in the wintertime. Keep the heat on but otherwise I am ask well guilty. Party is not turning myspace off. Miss Faith would be the name of being rich last. Peterbilt trucks One thing especially in the winter there feel Joe on the tank once that fueled gels up. You'RE NOT GONNA get. It cranked up because it's just like Jelly for summer. Well Hey again. Air conditioners cost and a whole lot of the country through the summer months. Enough though idling sound you hear truckstop may not be the primary engine at all but a much smaller engine generator. Basically just big enough to provide heat. Ac `electricity Marilyn Ness track. I have much caught an F. R. Hater Ingrid's got an even smaller unit. Just for heat little motor polls fuel out of the Hank but it's quiet and it just blows warm air through to this plenty drivers want to avoid aisling and they're finding to do it some without burning fuel at all your next road trip.

"Hey there and welcome to the Channel. One nine special. I'm todd dill's in case you're just joining us or wondering where Paul is and who I am. Here's the deal. I'm an editor at overdrive magazine. Meaning I spend most of my time writing about trucking four truckers. But for this podcast. I'll be hosting this series of mini episodes. Where we help. Answer your questions about trucking. If you're hearing this and you are a trigger then keep toned but bear with me. We'll be hitting some real basics. Start I channel one nine. We're going to talk about handling. Cb handles guess the only one I've ever really had was freak as infrequency because on the Radio Guy at our company I fix everybody's CB's you've well started out years ago Hall concrete on flat bed one of my buddies and said Hey Kanzi cowboy it stuck with me in the late. Nineteen fifties. The Federal Communications Commission started requiring licenses for anyone wanting to use a see. That's a citizens band radio. It was easy enough to get a license but CB's got so common that many truckers just didn't bother with it today the FCC truckers and others without licenses came up fictitious names for themselves shadow. I'm not going to get into the story about how I got that name. Even though the FCC stout requiring the senior license in the early Nineteen Eighties. Tradition of handles stuck around. They can be jokes because I used to weigh a hundred pound exercises in wish fulfillment. But I've gone by T. speed before but like slow and slower. Yes appropriated insults to if you Google the words Wild Australian bitch it comes back Dingo sort of. That's my handle Schreider. The heck are you might Crawford here. Might be the first trucker who told me that a CB handle meant to last is rarely something you give yourself given the handle beer cab. Because when he was sitting there drinking beer kept count of how many dad was he saved little tabs. Legit handle is a nickname that takes the reins and he looked like curly from a priest. Who just and he could sound. Act just like in fact Crawford gave me my own him like you're like a ghost. I'm somewhere all of a sudden you show up and would you be in everywhere and being able to write about everything. You need dose writer. That's W. R. I t. e. r. most writer chants. But how might Crawford became? The Mustang is a more interesting story. We're going on a ranch out in Colorado for one hundred dollars a week. He'd come off the road and the nineteen eighties to try his hand is a cowboy out in Colorado. Wow Mustang from out in Nevada or somewhere there you would come to know a wild horse. They name the force. Norman Norman. It was very friendly and he was very playful. He would come up behind you. And take you snows in Knox Cowboy hat off. He's like Mike took on the project breaking Norman to a writer and I can ride most anything. Well didn't always go. Well I climbed up in the saddle. Squeeze my legs together. Which was commanded to get into? You know go forward He didn't walk forward. It straight up. Did you ever try to get a saddle out from between your legs when you're eight foot in the air in coming down and there's no horse under you? I hit hard me the saddle still between my legs and I'm trying to breathe. Norman comes over and I swear to God. This is the truth is some other people. See It would verify norman. Come over then down. Looked at me like are you alright and lick my face like damn dogwood how everybody kept telling me. Mustang man and like any good handle the name stuck mustangs long career in trucking saw both the glory days and the long decline of the truckers. Today call it. The quote original Social Media Boards Heyday in the nineteen seventies when impromptu highway meet and greet for drivers. Cb coffee breaks some called. You got no guys at. You'd be driving down the road and see it coming on and Holler over a bear. Tab Is that you or hockey child is that you when friendships were forged over the airwaves. But we'd go along just BS in the Hallway. Always a social thing. Those things still happen but the steady rise. The cell phone did a number on. Cbs Culture among truckers on the vault. And everybody else cellphone. It became the downfall for a lot of things. One good thing makes it fairly simple to collect questions for podcast?

"Hey folks todd dill's from overdrive magazine. We'll be back next week with episode four over the road but in the meantime I'm here with another Channel One nine special today. We're talking about music but do truckers listen to out on the road. A lot depends on taste of course so we went ahead and put out a call and see be garth Brooks Keith. Whitley Air Naval and down Harry Connick Junior Travis trid George Strait George Jones. Some familiar names in there for sure. But here's one you may not know ric that'd be the tone justice troops. She can can game between the labs. He's like the Merle haggard trucker songwriters. Both the quintessential example and inspiration to legions of others. County best. Tony Justice you're hearing right now. My Name's Tony Justice. I've been driving trucks just two thousand twenty years in January out of museum asleep. Tony is an old friend of overdrive so we thought well who better to run us through something but trucking playlist and greater fuel consumption mason mom shrinking and music. I don't remember the not ever beans in my life. My mother was an amazing singer. I mean she was Dolly Parton Loretta. Lynn Tammy wine all rolled up and worn and my dad was trucker. You know just I. Just don't ever remember the two not being a part of life. Over the past ten years Tony Justices paid tribute to many of the truck music classics at six days on the road from his first trucking team record and twenty eleven pitch. Roll down at eastern seaboard. Of course. Here's the most famous version cut by Dave Dudley. In one thousand nine hundred sixty three. Don't have cop inside stays on the road and I'm going on get home after it came out. Six days on the road was D- Template for truck driving themed music. We actually did a poll years back on the best trucking songs all time six days on the road came in number one among our audience owner operators inside the Rogan Omega home. Merle haggard now the old truck and big we use load AAC weasel in that right. There is another Tony. Favorites Merle Haggard. He's moving on. I like about tap. Music is just make sure mine is laugh. It'd be one in bad days a turn your radio on them and get your little escape for doing what the best no hat sounds kitchen teddy bear teddy bear by read so vine this one clocked in third on our poll. By the way I was on the outskirts of town trying to reach my destination before the sun went down. It tells the story of a young boy who talks to truckers at home over. Cb He inherited after his trucker father died in a wreck on the radio live and he song. The boy laments that he'll never get to ride in a truck again since his father's gone. I guess it's all over now. Manetti is gone and when he says this over. The air. Every trucker within earshot shows up for a convoy with teddy bear. That's the boys handled me riding in the lead truck. That kind of passion always been sending that triggers have always had and I think it's because we have so much time with our own kid as truck drivers in our family but just automatically at rising they tune when it comes to trudge journeys that we make as drivers for so many things that are comparable to the journey. Didn't everybody makes one of the reasons. Why trucking industry and then more than any other industry combined out forty acres this bigger and Tony's own songs have done a lot to rebuild the old bonds between music and trucking culture which had faded somewhat since one thousand nine hundred seventy S. I thought I'd let him play out with one of his latest singles which also happens to be quite appropriate to our recent episode about the history of trump song is called lasted the cowboys. Radical explains Prairies Rocky Mountain off to the distance sky black smoke side by side spoiled in Jerusalem. Y'All way we're the last of the campus go eighteen you run across Arizona six thirty or seven o'clock in the morning and you're cutting across that desert. You got winding down and radio turned up. That's why we do what we do. It can't really be explained but it makes you. It makes you feel like you know one of the guys at the phone. The Pony Express delivering the mail across the desert and to be there at a certain time. You know you just just get that same convenient. Last as American cowboy you know freedom freedom of the road and see that slowly disappearing vein is one of the elements that really poster Nest Song bolstered. Indeed last night check. The video had turned nearly six million views and yet all the success. Tens of thousands of CDs sold in truck stops walmarts and so much more. It's just not quite enough to peel the man away from his truck today. Justice pulls a dry box for transportation running out of Dandridge Tennessee and a peterbilt. He calls purgatory.
