Hey guys! I'm still kicking around.

Things have been busy lately as well as super stressful. Hubby has been having some issues, first with MO trying to take his insurance away, then new regulations on his medications coming down from the insurance companies. It's been a big mess trying to get everything sorted out.

My 6 month solo anniversary is coming up in 10 days. 10 DAYS!! It doesn't feel like it's been that long at all.

I'll be honest. I've been putting out some feelers as far as a potential move to another company. Nothing set in stone of course, but I have a couple of options that look pretty promising.

Don't get me wrong. I don't have anything against TransAm. I get good miles every week, I have an awesome dispatcher and I get home on time, every time. It's going to take a heck of a good offer to get me to leave all of that. To start over from the bottom is a daunting task, so it's going to have to be a really good step up.

So, no decisions have been made yet. But I'll keep y'all updated!

Dispatcher:

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.

Hey Chickie, I'm curious as to who you have for a DM. I'm doing pretty good with my "Business Manager" at Trans Am so far but after 10 weeks I go into the Driver Manager stage. I'd like to know which ones are better than others if possible. I did 2875 miles last week even after sitting in Holcomb, KS for 32 hours waiting on Tyson to have my load ready! Running everything out west so far. Would really like to make it to the east someday! Preferably a run to Upstate N.Y. so I can stop and say Hi to family and grand babies. Let me know bout dispatcher if ya will I'd greatly appreciate it

My DM is Mike. He's downright awesome. One of the rare ones who care about theirs drivers and truly want to see them succeed.

He knows how I like to run (early mornings) and tried to get me loads with early morning appointment times. He hardly ever sends me multiple stop loads because he would rather me keep going than have to sit around. He even seems to be able to read my mind before I ever ask for something. If I need an appointment time changed or a preplan, I pretty much always get a message about it before I ever ask!

I actually haven't been out west since training. Run a lot in the Northeast and Southeast.
