    I really enjoy Christmas, the decorations, and the holiday spirit and sounds. I have found that adding a few decorations to the truck add a cheery air. I have a Christmas Quilt on the bed, Christmas pillows, small spring snowman in the vent windows ...

    We have had our Air Tabs since the summer of 2005 and as of today we have not lost a single one. We wash our truck often with our favorite truck wash being the Truck O Mat with the brushes which clean the AirTabs great

    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...

    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...

    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!

    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?

    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.
