    We have found that having a network of friends sure helps to make our lives easier! We have contacts with in the office, we have contacts among other expediters and we have contacts in other areas of trucking. The cell phone keeps us in touch.

    Bob and I are constantly reading talking and listening to trucking information. The better informed we are the better we can stay on top of what we need to do to have a successful business. We not only read books on trucking we read self help books

    Planning your gift purchased for Christmas while on the road. I am a catalog shopper which works well for me since we are in the truck running up and down the highways! I try to have all of my Christmas catalog shopping finished and the orders at the house by Thanksgiving.

    How cool is purple oatmeal first thing in the morning? I have always been a fan of oatmeal and this past year I have started adding fresh berries to my oatmeal. With winter coming on I have been having a hard time finding blueberries at a reasonable price...

    Sometimes you can wait over an hour for that much desire shower or as is usually the case they are immediately ready for you to use. You can always ask for an extra towel and many places will give a girl two towels which is nice.

    This time of year is awesome to see and experience with the leaves changing and the weather fighting the onset of freezing temperatures.

    This time of year we can have our winter coat on in the morning and be looking for our shorts by the evening.

    What do you do all day? How do you keep from getting bored? We often get asked those questions as if we have enough time to get bored in our days! It amazes me how fast a day goes by even if we are sitting or we are running down the road.

    Our folding bikes have given us many miles of enjoyment.
    We bought our folding bikes over a year ago and we have been able to ride them in several states. The bikes are awesome since they take up very little space and we have had very good luck with their tires.

    What used to be a curse is now awesome! Bob is a night owl and I like to watch the sun rise. This problem used to be the pits with me trying to stay up late and Bob trying to get up earlier. Now driving team this is a perfect situation Bob sleeps in and get up early!

    We have been running steady which has been a nice change. We have been pretty lucky to have stayed pre assigned or as soon as we unload we have another offer waiting for us. We have a pre-assignment for Monday which is nice gives us a chance to catch up.
