I recently passed my 10,000th post and 20,000 thanks. Been a rough ride sometimes, logging out at times in disgust as to where trucking has gone, but even retired, I still look at every truck that goes by, and have the back brace to remind me everyday of my job. Do I miss it? Of course, I wouldn't be here if I didn't, even though, trucking today is a mere shred of what I was used to. Several indicators prove to me, what rough times lay ahead and am truly, "Happily Retired".
I do want to say, however, a lot of mishaps come through here, seemingly indicating, we have the biggest screwups on the rock driving our trucks, and it just isn't so. I'll defend to the bitter end, we have the best drivers, and the fact our truck drivers are able to supply this ungrateful country with the goods needed to survive, is a testament to their dedication, and are just as responsible for our countrys well being as LEOs, and a tip of the hat to those still doing it. AMEN!
