    Is that why you called me the other day? I need to send you a pic of the truck I'm driving now. A working show truck! Loving the conestoga part of the flatbed world.
     
    Scooter Jones Thanks this.

    O/O is a big deal, I'm impressed. Good luck with your own business.

    Well, I did almost 4 years as a company driver and 1 year in the office where I worked in and was exposed to almost every phase of the industry. Therefore, I believe I was ready to run my own little company ;-)

    Pretty rough trucking day. These are how most of them go:

    1. Wake up and have coffee
    2. Take a nice hot shower at the truck stop.
    3. Have some more coffee.
    4. Drive a couple of hours and stop for fuel
    5. Go on a 3.5 mile power walk/jog
    6. Take off driving again
    7. Groove to music on Sirius radio
    8. Talk to wife and friends on headset
    9. Finish off the day with 544 miles
    10. Have a turkey sandwich dinner
    11. Recline in the sleeper with the Mochilla cooler blowing on me
    12. Do a little texting and web surfing
    13. Get some shut eye so I can do it all over again tomorrow

    Isn't that hard? ☺

    The talk to the wife part seems like it could be.

    Wife and I will be married 36 years this December. Believe me, we've done a lot of talking to each other over the years 💏
