    We were offered a load on Friday that picks up on Monday which provides us with an awesome break. We are free to go do laundry, see a movie, spend time with family and friends, and not worry about the beep of the QUALCOMM and having to pack everything away and take off in a hurry.

    We dodged the cold weather bullet just barely! We made is south just as the cold was coming across the center of the country and ended up in southern New Mexico. It was sure nice to not wake up to a frozen world and our generator not running

    Our truck is always in the background of our lives and in many of our pictures. The truck sits there waiting till we are ready to hit the road again. The truck makes possible many of our dreams and is what we have used to create a successful business that we enjoy

    After being off for awhile you are on pins and needles waiting for that first load offer taking you away from the house. We were caught pretty off guard on this first load as we usually do not get load offers first thing in the morning..

    Winter time, the truck, home time, and the generator not running is hard on our water tank and our water pump. We learned the hard way to not let our sink freeze as the parts are expensive and not that easy to come by and a frozen water tank is the pits

    We are loading the truck and getting ready to head out for a month before coming back home. When we start loading the truck we need to know about how long we will be gone. This time we need to be back the first part of February so we can get our taxes filed

    We are getting ready to go back on the road after having two weeks off at home. We had planned on this time to spend with our daughters and my sister. We tried out a new concept this year of no gifts just memories and what a success we have had...

    We are looking forward to getting back on the road in 2010. Hope to heck we can avoid most of the bad weather and get through another winter without having to drag the chains out. To tell the truth I would rather have to put chains on then to drive on ice..

    As the New Year gets closer I have been looking back on how 2009 has went... In many ways 2009 has to have been one of the most exciting years we have had in trucking. We have been involved in some exciting projects and have met some amazing people and have had many firsts

    Background noise is rough on your senses. We have found in our little world inside the truck that we are well insulated from background noise of lots of chatter, kids, TV and music. We have become so accustomed to the noise of the truck and road that....
