Packrat, you've been around here long enough to be like a close family member to all of us. Please know that our hearts and prayers are with you through this.

Truly, this should be easier than being an O/O. Piece o cake, brother.

PackRat, keep us posted. Are you on a list for a new heart? How long do they say it might take?

Could be tonight, or it could be a lengthy wait. I’ll be in this bed either way. I’m in the highest priority of needs for a transplant. Only 2300 transplants per year in the US. Unfortunately, many more are on the needed list. Think 2300 X 10 waiting....Cost of a transplant (parts and labor) is from $950K to $1.3 Million. Luckily for me my insurance is covering it all. Be an organ donor. If you aren’t already, sign up for it. Remember, you can’t take it with you. That’s all for now.

After 15 years on the road I wanted to help people understand the trucking industry and everything that came with the career and lifestyle of an over the road trucker. We'll help you make the right choices and prepare for a great start to your trucking career.
