Hello everyone, I'm alive and kicking just busy. This year has been very interesting for me. I was thinking today about my upcoming vacation time and realized it's been 4 years since I started on here and started this chapter in my life. Wow it has gone by fast. This new job has been a steep learning curve but alot of fun as well. I'll be here till I decide to retire full time, lol. I bought some property in Ga (12 acres 11 of it is in woods). With averaging a 4 day work week I needed something more than a house in town that has neighbors way too close for my liking. I hope all are well and have a wonderful holiday season. Stay safe

Hey welcome back PJ! Every time you come back I tell you I wish you'd come back more often. Now I'm telling you again - come back more often!!!

You can now upload photos to the website. Just click on "Photo" and then click on "Upload New Photo" - it will let you choose any photos you have on your phone or computer and upload em here. You can do multiple photos but just one at a time.

Give it a shot! It's easy.

Glad to hear things are going well for ya!


When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.
