At the risk of getting too personal on here, I just want to ask everybody to keep our friend Packrat in your thoughts. We know he had a serious medical procedure pending, and it's been a couple days since he last logged in. Positive vibes can go a long way. That is all.

Sorry buddy if you don't want the attention, you're getting it anyway.

Yesterday I was at a warehouse and the yard driver was a super friendly guy. He was a former OTR driver for 18 years but had 3 heart attacks and lost his fed med card. Reminded me of what you are going through. I hope things are progressing positively for you.


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.

Turtle is the most! Thanks all for the prayers and thoughts. Good update for me is that today is my day for replacement. Just got the good word about my transplant coming in within a few hours so hopefully by tomorrow I'll be a new person. Excited, scared, lots of emotions. Fingers crossed. Better days going ahead. Everybody stay safe. Take your time. Watch around you. Watch your wagons! GTown words of wisdom always. Expect the expected. Don't tailgate. Stop if there is a doubt. Communication and positive attitude. Hope I will have more news soon next week. Thanks Brett for TT.
