Sleeping we learned was going to be our most difficult obstacle to overcome and we both had this problem.  We trusted each others driving what we had a problem with was the movement of the truck, the noise of passing vehicles, and getting our minds to shut off and relax.  We share several tips on how we finally learned to relax so we could sleep.  We also discover what will become our ultimate driving shifts - Bob is a night person and I am a morning person and we have that same schedule to this day.

Bob was the cause of these rules.... He really likes the comedy channel and he really can laugh loud! He also learned to sleep easier then I did. He has the amazing ability to be able to wake up and do something then go right back to sleep. Amazing

Another great video. Bob seems a little less excited about the rules of the truck.
