Ernie S. (AKA Old Salty Dog)'s Bio

Born & raised on a dairy farm in WA state, did 20 years in the military, spent most of the last 19 years since retiring from the military doing computer work.

I drive for Prime Inc., and have been having the time of my life since I started driving in Oct 2011. Changed to Barr Nunn in March 2014 but they talked a good game but did not follow through with what they preached. From Barr Nunn I went to JB Hunt on one of their dedicated accounts.

After being gone from Prime for 2 years, I have been back since Feb 2016. Time will tell just how long I'll be driving since I had medical issues the summer of 2015. Some minor complications, but not anything I can't manage for the time being.

There have been lots of days when I wonder, why did I do this again? But all kidding aside, would not trade this for the world.
