    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?

    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.

  • Great Places to Eat

    We have found a few places in the United States and Canada we like to eat at. We usually eat in the truck but there are a few places that we just cannot resist and if time allows we like to stop at. I am sure you have some also.
  • I get TO!

    I have came a long way in my attitude about everyday and the future. What I have found that works for me is changing a couple of words. I have found when I use the words “I get to” instead of “I have to”
  • Morning Person / Night Person

    We are lucky in our team driving as Bob is naturally a night owl and I am an early bird.

    When we had “normal” jobs this was not so much fun but now these traits really work well for us and we exploit them to their full advantage.
  • Waiting to go HOME

    Anticipation is starting to build as we will be home for Thanksgiving. We have not been able to get by our house since the first part of September and our mail has been stacking up. I am sure glad we can pay our bills online!
