    Not sure what you mean by that but I ain't worried. Life is still good, even when folks hate on it.

    not deflating you but practically all you newbs have bosses in those qualcoms and elogs and governed trucks.I appreciate your positive demeanor however so please do not misconstrue.actually and for that matter,not a one of us is our own boss any longer due to the government intervention.I have more freedom in my driving than you will have in yours(especially if you start as a company driver for a mega) yet I feel as if I am restricted with all the new laws and csa's and junk that have been instituted.

    anyway,best of luck and i truly hope that yours is as boss-less as possible.

    Thank you for your service to our country.

    I prefer running coast-to-coast; it gives more balance to my lifestyle.
    Had a job where I was home often then my girlfriend complained that I was spending too much time with my wife. Went back to coast-to-coast to even things out; now it's 50/50 with the quality time.

    Yup usually the worst driver at the company who is given the job because they couldnt drive a sharp stick up a dead dogs ###. This gets them off the road you see.
