    Saw Taken in SFS a couple of weeks ago, so I know he's still running around and (was) safe. Might get Joe to text him (I think they exchanged numbers) and check up on him... but he could just be busy, too.
     
    AXE Thanks this.

    That was the time when I hitched a ride on his truck from Phx when my old truck broke down. He's doing okay, and really seems like a motivated guy with being new to the industry and everything. During our conversation, he mentioned that he doesn't have any access to the internet, and like me, doesn't really visit the site that often anymore.

    Hey TPOTR! If you read this, then how's it going?

    Hello, sorry I have not been around. Been running my butt off!!! I have the internet, just been busy and stuff. My youngest daughter has been having a hard time with me being gone, so i have been spending my time doing video chats with her and then going to sleep. I just made it home for a few days a week ago, so things are good again.

    I also had a phone failure and had to ditch my windows phone, got the Evo 4G now and love it!!!

    Hope everyone is doing well, will try and update more often!

    I started a blog a few weeks ago, if anyone is interested, you can check it out at http://takenpictures-otr.tumblr.com/

    I gots me an old school unlimited data plan!!!

    I will call you soon too, I am surprised we have not crossed paths. I was in Conover a few weeks ago for a 34 and saw your truck(personal truck). I was hoping it would be gone, would have assumed you were at home and called you up to come rescue me and have a few beers

    The Volvo was okay.....when I had it! I no longer possess the Volvo anymore....and I'm no longer a dryvan driver anymore....and I'll be hauling different commodities.....with a different make and model of truck.....coughskateboardingcough.......I'll fill you in, but not on here. I keep track of a handful of people on here, but that's the only reason why I log on here anymore.

    You still have my number? I'll shoot it on over to you. You're gonna LOVE this story, and will probably be shocked at the same time. All good news and everything!

    I'm gonna have to check out your tumblr link. I've been contemplating taking pics and posting them somewhere to share with others, but I haven't decided what site to do that on. Not a big fan of the Facebook thingy either.

    Don't work too hard, always make time for the family, and drive safe out there!

    TPOTR:

    Just checked out your tumblr page. Nice pics! Kinda felt nostalgic when I saw the Chicago pics. CTA's "El" Train still looks like complete crap though. What a disaster! I'm surprised that the train line wasn't shut down yet! The entire system is probably as old as my parents though. Scenery - good! Chicago........Chicago? Chicago - BOO!!! That place still blows.

    What camera did you use? And don't even tell me that you used an Android phone either. I have a rock in my hand ready to fling it at you if you tell me otherwise!
