The thoughts from a 75 yr old retired driver of 45 yrs OTR

Same thing with me my father in law drove for over 30 years and he said almost the same thing to me. Lol

Now my momma always did say I was part gypsy... In the fact that I can't stay in one place to long, guess she was right have thought about driving off and on my whole life never would because of the family. I worked in a factory for 15 years then went to work in state government for 15 years.

Now that my daughter is grown and has a family of her own, and me at 50 years old I'm gonna do what I want to do for me. The woman in my life supports me 110% she has even said that she would take off work from time to time and ride with me.

Tested Out Today!

Tractor Man right now I don't have anything... LOL. Hopefully by the end of the week, but I haven't seen any new FB tractors here at Greer unless they are gonna bus me there to pick it up. But I know I am ready to hit the road...

CT I think a lot of more of them are in the west, Phoenix and Loredo are big FB terminals Greer SC is kinda small compared to them, but I think may be the only FB terminal in the east. Yes you are correct my friend FB is definitely no joke and being a rookie to to boot is just gonna make it that much tougher. Take my time and pay attention.

Swift Solo Upgrade!

I will be testing out in Greer on August 8th. I have some things at home that need my attention at once. Then my daughters wedding next week. And they said that since my home terminal is Greer and I will be in flatbed training there on the 8th they would just test me out there.
