    A lot of negativity lately, I for 1 still love this whacky business. I think about trucks all the time, of course I think of my family and other important things, I do think about trucks almost all the time though. If I hear a good sounding truck I stop what I’m doing and run to my front window to see it go by even if it’s a truck I’ve seen tons of times. When I’m laying in bed I can hear the trucks going by and if it’s all lit up it will glow thru our blinds and it makes me wish I was out trucking. Nothing like turning the key and easing out the driveway with a shiny truck on a nice day, with a good load behind you. Ok rant over here’s some cool pictures

    Ain't nothing wrong with enjoying what you do. That's a great feeling. I just said that to my son going after his goals be excited about it.

    I hear yah. I act like this is a means to an end but here I am on TTR during my free time and look at every single truck when I’m out driving around. I drove a couple hundred miles the other day and was counting how many of the next Gen 680’s I saw. Frankly, we’re all completely ate up with it. lol

    I literally look at every single truck and take note of what they’re doing and exactly what equipment they’re running.

    After 16 years Its like my first day still. If I have a cool load to haul the next day I still can’t sleep the night before. Just wish I was smarter with my finances over the years, I’ve learned, the hard way but I’ve learned. I’ve also had a lot of fun so I can’t complain I guess.

    Ive had alot of fun with it. But the business side of it, has worn away the kid like love for it ive always had...i still love looking at cool trucks and hearing the jakes... But the passion really wears off when its difficult to make money at it. Becomes like anything else. Frustrating as hell. Makes me wanna do anything but drive.
