Tinker, I'm glad you're OK and hopefully your co-driver will have a speedy recovery.

Funny you should mention rib roast Old School. For a couple of years in a row I bought a rib roast for Christmas dinner and my family wouldn't eat it. One won't eat roast, I don't think he had any idea what the difference was between a rib roast and pot roast, another only eats beef well done, and a couple of others had some reason they wouldn't eat it. What I wound up with was very expensive hot beef sandwiches or beef and noodles. So I gave up. I sure do miss it. Any chance you have an extra place for dinner? good-luck-2.gif

Some years we smoke meats like brisket, pork ribs, and sausage. Occasionally I'll cook a leg of Lamb, sometimes we cook a huge pot of Seafood Gumbo, but this year we've got a 13 pound Wagyu beef Prime Rib Roast that my Son-in-law will be cooking on the Big Green Egg.

Dayum Old School!! I think I wanna eat with you now!!!!

Noel Missouri after my 10hr then off to North Platte Nebraska for an 0500 delivery on the 23rd. Route just happens to take me through my home town so I'll get to spend a little time there. Maybe, depends on how quickly I can get out of Tyson (hahaha).

My trainee and i are in the terminal having a free thanksgiving feast!


A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

I'll be home, as I am everyday. But nothing but respect, appreciation, gratitude etc for everybody who is on the road day in and day out doing nothing but turning miles. I know there is no better feeling than being away for an extended period of time and knowing your going home.

Btw old school when did you say dinner was? I'll bring the deviled eggs. smile.gif

On my way to Tolleson Arizona, will be the first time I haven't spent Thanksgiving with my girls and family. But I'm running for 6 Straight weeks so I can take a week off at Christmas. It hit me yesterday... I usually do the cooking or at least most of it. So I stopped at Walmart today and picked up a couple of Frozen items, Stouffer's turkey Bob Evans mashed potatoes and one of their little 50 Cent pumpkin pies they sell in the bakery. Won't exactly be a feast but it'll be my little Thanksgiving dinner. God bless all of you that are with your families and double bless all of you that are on the road this holiday.

I will be working through Thanksgiving. 👏👏

I will be waiting to hook up with my mentor / trainer while collecting layover pay until Wednesday.... (Thank you Rob you are the best Boss like everdancing-banana.gif ) For Eats likely just fry up some chicken and boil up some rice for me and the hubby. There won't be a xmas break because I will be on my first training run for 4 - 5 weeks.
