The longer we are out here expediting the smaller the United States has become. I looked back over our past few months and have had to chuckle over our visiting. We have friends that drive, friends who stay and home and family all over the USA...
Exercise on the Road
When I first started team driving I used snacks to help keep me awake. Between the snacks and lack of exercise boy did my weight start creeping up. I started ordering bigger pants, talking about the diet I WAS going to go on, and going to exercise...
Someone is Watching YOU
CSA 2010 is going to create some huge changes in the commercial truck driving world. One of the biggest is how the drivers will have a driver safety history instead of just the carrier. The driver will no longer be able to jump companies without his or her history following them...
Christmas Parade with FedEx Truck
We entered our truck in the local Christmas Parade! We are from a very small town in SW Kansas called Elkhart. Look it up on the map very small dot not near a whole lot! Not a good area for freight which is why we had to move but we sure still miss it!
Catching up with Friends
An unexpected surprise on the road is finding yourself parked near a friend you have not seen in awhile. We were just down in Laredo and caught up with Henry Albert who we have not seen since July at the Expedite Expo in Wilmington Ohio before that we saw him...
When you have made your final decision on what company you are going to lease onto or if you are a driver attending orientation first impressions start when you pull onto the property in your truck. When you get out of your truck how well are you presenting yourself?
Packing the Truck
It is time to go back in service and wait for that first load offer. After being at home a few days you go back into a somewhat normal sleep pattern. Bob still stays up later then me and I still get up way to early in the morning. We have been home a week and have stuff scattered..
We are home finally for about ten days for Thanksgiving and then will be home again for Christmas.
We will be able to spend this time with both of our girls and my sister here at our home. Our youngest daughter is in the military so we cherish her hometime. We will be able to spend this time with both of our girls and my sister here at our home. Last year was an odd year for us as our youngest daughter was over in Iraq for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
We are very lucky as we can park our truck at the house. When we first get home we park the truck next to the house and I get everything out that needs to be washed and also clothes to wear while at home.
Happy Thanksgiving!!!! Hope everyone has a great day if you are on the road or at home. We have done both been on the road and have had a very nice day or with our families. This year we will spend time at home with both of our girls and my sister.
