    Absolutely love it! I like the truck, the trailer, the work I do, nice people in the office.
    It's such a difference to reefer, shippers and receivers are friendly and don't treat you like sh**.
    Left the house two weeks ago after my week off, was three times in California and wasn't east of El Paso or Colorado :)
    Not that stress anymore like it was at GO.
    Wasn't sitting and waiting for a day to get a load as it was so often at GO.
    Have a very nice dispatcher, one you can talk to.
    I get more exercise now, will see if I'll lose some weight ;)

    I'm now just 1.5 months with the company and have an emergency, I need to fly to Germany in the next weeks. My mother was very sick and had to move in a nursing home. I will have to organize the sale of the house and have to clean it out.
    Called the company yesterday morning and was told, no problem to have about 2.5 weeks off.
    Can park my truck at home during that time. Now checking for flights.
    I really hate it to go to Germany, but there are no relatives, I'm the only one.
    Two friends of my mother organized her move to the nursing home, but they are already 82 and 85 years old and can't do it all.
    Was in Germany the last time in April 2013, my wife will stay at home with our seven pets.

    For those of us unlucky enough to do New England, be aware that the Vince Lombardi is pretty much just a parking lot. They have some port a potties, and 2 food trucks here. Food court has been torn to the ground and looks like it will be rebuilt.
    Hopefully they'll at least remodel the showers in the trucker building, tho it's still standing.

    Thanks for the wishes!

    Unloaded today in 10 minutes! Arrived 15 minutes before they closed (had called them before).
    Took my straps and chains off, then three forklifts lifted the load, 46500 lbs, I pulled forward, done :)
    Took more time to get my straps and chains off than unloading :cool:
