    That seems like a good plan. Nobody cares more about your comfort and your future than you should. If you don't look after your needs, nobody else will.

    When I was with TMC, I took the truck home for anything under 2 weeks off. They had enough trucks in the yard if needed. Only time I cleaned out my truck was when I need 6-8 weeks off, maybe more ( hurricane damage to house ), I just let dispatch know a week before when I was ready to come back and they had a newer truck with my name on it waiting at the terminal. Very accommodating ( I had been there a couple years, so was on first name, good terms with everyone)
