I wish I still had all of mine.Those were the days. I had hair then too. I bet that stereo sounds good too. Pioneer Box Woods?

Them young guns just don't know. I still remember the day Fm first hit the air waves.

Fm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

I do a LOT of audio books, along with Satellite Radio. I'm kind of stuck on the Satellite Radio with the bizarre crap going on in Washington right now, but I am right in the middle of the unabridged edition of 'The Lord Of The Rings' ... I'm not sure exactly how many discs there are, but there are three boxes (one for each book) and each have 18 or so discs in them...so probably 45 - 50 discs total. I bought it years ago and never had the time to listen to it. I've read the books several times, and it's great that I get to listen to them in their entirety.

Well that's because he's been on the sidelines for three years getting "ready" to start OTR.

Once he gets in the deserts of WA you'll track him down! dancing-banana.gif

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.
