  1. well here i go again......

    I just finished my last day at Central transport here in Vegas. Its been awhile since I've been on here. Over 14 years outta 18 doing local P&D. Getting ready to start training in a new job tomorrow hauling crude in a tanker. I have very little experience in a tanker. less than 6 months. Anyone got advice? Ill take any opinion. I just needed to get out of trying to beat the clock every 15 mins and the inevitable " You want me to put that 53' in there???. P.S. The strip is no place for ...

    Much has happened in the past two weeks, so let me recap. I completed training, my daughter and grandson were in a serious car accident but fortunately did not suffer serious injury, I was assigned to a trainer, and was out with him much longer than I was originally scheduled.

    Then last week, as we were making our way from a shipper in New Hampshire to a t-call in Nashville to get me off the truck to test out, we weren't far from a scheduled fuel stop. We were discussing a blinking ...

    I've been off since passing the final test, getting my driver ID, and being assigned a trainer. The toughest part of this is the waiting, of course.

    Well, toughest that is, after calming down from the bad news I got Thursday night that I mentioned in an earlier post.

    Late that night, after going to bed and falling asleep, I got a phone call from my son-in-law's mother telling me my youngest daughter and my grandson were involved in a serious car accident involving a drunk ...

    Orientation and Load Securement classes behind me, I am now an official employee of Western Express Flatbed Division. This is going to be a very exciting new chapter in my life, one I hope will not be in the 'jump-off-a-cliff' category of exciting.

    This has been an eventful couple of days. A tornado did damage near my former home near Moore, Oklahoma, and last night, my youngest daughter and grandson were hit by a drunk driver racing a pickup truck, rolled five times, and they somehow ...

    The end of my Fast. The beginning of Spring. And I got hired by Western Express as a Michigan-based flatbed truck driver, something I've never done before.

    Not one of the many companies I queried about hiring me would have anything to do with me, including my own former employer, the one company who knows the truth about what happened. But no matter. They all said no, except Western, and I'm thankful for that.

    This will be my last employer. I have about 3-4 more years to ...

    You know there is something deeply Irish in you when your soul just smiles and quivers while watching a flashmob do an Irish dance in Sydney.

    My very Irish grandfather, John Burke, and his mother, Great Gramma Bertha Julia Burke, would be pleased to know their offspring Jimmy acknowledges their and his own bloodline to the Old Country.
