A few of us had been wondering why tractor man quit coming around...it wasn't because he was so tired from working at Coke, or that he was injured. It was to make sure he wouldn't get sent to the dungeon if you ever made it down by him!

Thank you Rainy & everyone else for the kind words & the hysterical responses. It was an ordeal but in a very good way. Rainy forced me to expand my comfort zone & endure some lashings from Rome to time. I’m a better person & a much better trucker because of how deeply she cares. Lots of my PSD peers are taking my number cause I find myself answering questions that she drilled into me but their trainers didn’t. Thank you to the entire TT dysfunctional family and all the resources on here. From never stepping foot in a truck, never shifting, CDL holder at Prime Inc!!! I hope I can pay it forward many times over. Be safe everyone & please leave me plenty of room & be patient with my backing at the truck stops!! Hehehe

I'm a little late getting to the party due to some travel requirements. But better late than never...

Congratulations, Splitter!
