    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....

    We have another Christmas behind us. We had a very enjoyable Christmas Eve and Christmas day with our daughters and my sister. Our youngest daughter is a captain in the Air Force and any Christmas we can have her with us and not deployed is great ....

    We are home for the holidays with our daughters and my sister. It is great to be with family and to have the time to spend together. One of the best things at our house is we do not have cable so no one is glued to the TV

    When we first started our here on the road we were very light sleepers. Every time a truck would back in beside us with the backup alarms going off and then setting their brakes we would wake up. Every time a reefer would start next to us we woke up..

    Learning to sleep in a moving truck takes time and patience. I can still remember when we started as almost a nightmare. We started when the DOT regulations for teams were 5 hours on and 5 off if you wanted. I was sure glad of that law ..

    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 ...
