Donna, soon you will be rollin’ rollin’ rollin’! The good thing with today’s technology is there are so many ways to keep in touch with people you meet. Exchange numbers, Facebook info, etc. and you will always have them near. If they are drivers/students you can meet up out on the road when possible. If they work at the offices of Prime you can see them when you swing through the area.

I don’t know how it’s possible but I want this more now than I ever have. Soon.

Rainy, I may have seen you yesterday while I was out running errands...I seem to zero in on Prime trucks any time I’m on the interstate or go by a truckstop. There is a GoMart close to me where trucks park that I pass all the time. It’s funny, but I even drive through the lot just to look at the trucks. LOL I’ve done that since I was a kid.

Keeping a name because of the dog you lost is a beautiful reason. One that I understand. I lost my Golden Retriever, Gracie, almost two years ago. I tell my two legged kids that Gracie was my favorite child, she never messed up her room, she never sassed, and she was always very happy to see me.

I would love to read your book! Let me know what I’m looking for. Yay!!!

Well, I’ve put it off as long as possible, time to get ready to go to work in me little office.

Have a great day ladies!

Yes I’m headed to Minnesota tonight. I’m so nervous could hardly eat breakfast. All my stuff is in truck and I got about 600 miles to drive today so I’ve got to lose the nerves.

Thats a nice run.from.sprimo. dont push yourself.too hard take a break when you need to and no, you dont have to do 600 miles in one shift.

remember to put your hazards on if you get too nervous. people around you will assume you have mechanical issues.

good luck

Hey Kim.... i just set all of my books for free on Kindle 7/19 to 7/23.

The stories are all really good but the best written is Zodiac Lives. I paid big bucks to have that thriller edited by a great editor. If you like serial killer mysteries...that is a good one. Goin Postal is hilarious....bloggers in UK went nuts over it.

search Rhoda D'Ettore on Amazon please. My phone is being tempermental. thanks

Donna...Ohhh Doonnnnnaaaa... I met a girl and Donna was her name...since she went trucking, shes never been the same...but she loves her truck...oh donna oh where can she be...where can she be

sorry...i had to. lol

how did you do????

Awesome!! I just bought Zodiac Lives, Goin’ Postal, and the boxed set. I couldn’t wait until the 19th so I bought them. lol I love reading new authors and mysteries.

Yesterday at work the HR Director found out that I will be leaving my job soon. She called me to her office and asked me about it. I told her why I was leaving and she was not happy. I got a very good yearly evaluation last week and a decent raise but, it’s not enough. Ya know? I am so burned out after 20+ years in an office dealing with pleadings and court filings and and and. When you almost start crying in the mornings on your way to work, it’s time for a change. Time to finally do what I’ve wanted to do for many years. And I will.

Anyway...Donna?!? Where are you?!? How’s it going? I’m not good at verse like Rainy but I am thinking of you and can’t wait to hear from you.

I’m in Minnesota got here early hours of the morning slept in truck my first time. Believe me, I slept. I drive the entire way, getting better at the turns however the backing well don’t even want to talk about that one. I have a very patient trainer so easy going. I feel like crap this morning however I usually do, I’m not a morning person. I actually had to put a long sleeve shirt on such a drastic temperature adjustment.

Rainy, all of the books are downloaded to my iPad and it is taking very serious will power to not set it where no one can see it if they come in my office so that I can start reading. LOL I’m being good though and just playing music on my iPad...for now. I will definitely let you know what I think.

Yay Donna!! Your very first OTR trip is now under your belt. Backing will come to you. But, you drove the entire way...that’s awesome. With going all over the US I’m sure you have to have different types of clothes for each climate. I’ll have to remember that.

I’m glad your trainer is easy to get along with.

Keep it up!!!


Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.
