I've been dead in the water for over 24 hrs now. Strange how things work. I had a load for Sunday morning to Houston. Support calls me and asks if I mind switching to Round Rock because the driver on that run doesn't have enough hours. It delivers earlier than mine.

OTRA is joining forces with other organizations to improve the lives of American, English speaking truckers all over the nation.... even in Hawaii, but we are suspect of them. OTRA has come to realize that "CDL Protector" pre-paid legal services is a scam derived to drain truckers of their Iron Skillet dollars and OTRA will no longer put up with it.

What are your hobbies? What do you enjoy doing when you get home? I mean besides spanking the spouse and loving on the kids; what do you enjoy?
