I haven't been on here in a while. I almost quit driving the way I was screwing everything up. I had to take time to concentrate on driving and get better. Some people say I take turns too wide now, but at least I don't hit anything. I am getting really good at backing now. I am at the point now where I should have been a year ago. It just took me longer to get there.

I am now working for a different company on a dedicated account, just running the upper midwest. I am home every weekend, still running about 2500 miles a week.

I now work for Bay and Bay. I am doing a dedicated UPS account, hauling Ferguson supplies. It is based out of Waterloo IA. I never go east of Ohio. It is mostly Mn, Wi, IA, and ND. Sometimes I go to Nebraska. It is only Ferguson stores I go to. If anyone doesn’t know, Ferguson is a plumbing and heating supply store. Some of the stores are really fun to back into. I will find that bad one and send in a backing practice. The best part is that I am home every weekend. Most of the time, I have a full weekend. And I still get 2500-3000 miles a week.
