He was spotted at his terminal 34 hours ago.

Terminal:

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.

Speaking of where have you been, where have YOU been, JoAnne?

Or am I just so busy I haven’t seen your posts?

Nope, you haven't missed a thing! =)

Just busy trudging through (work... yuck!) and dealing w/ an adult child who is a disaster...

Anyway, how are you doing?

I have been busy. I'm in a little place called Donald at the TA 'til around 0130. Going through Portland to Hermiston for a load to NE. Supposed to be there on 04/01, but will try to deliver early. I haven't been on TT for a bit, for 2 reasons, one, have been super busy. Two, I don't want to get into it now. Always know that I have been real close to your area several times, but usually late at night or early morning. Maybe next time come through we can meet up at one of the truck stops and I'll buy ya a coffee. And that goes for any other on TT. I know what it's like to deal with adult children. They think they know everything and now that they are an adult they don't want mom and dad telling them what to do. This has has been going on since biblical times. Remember the prodigal son. Well all you can do is try to give them guidance and hope that what you taught them will finally sink in. It finally got through to my son. So, how have you been? I hadn't seen any of your comments lately as Grumpy said. And as Marc Lee said your smiling face. Well off to bed I am, 0130 comes early.

Driving, eating, and sleeping. :)

My first solo week has been a whirlwind.

Congratulations Grumpy!

I knew you could do it. So it gets better. You start to breathe, and say to yourself, is this really happening? Did I have anyone else in the truck with me. My first day, I looked over at the passenger seat, and said, what do you think we should handle this first assignment? But of course no answer from the passenger seat. Hey you'll do fine.

Rainy, I'm sure you're tracking me so I can visit you're dungeon. NOT! It's good to see that I do show up on the map sometimes.

I'm supposed to be sleeping, can't get even close being sleepy. Maybe you could work one of your spells? Anyway, just a light sleep, not permanent.
