Congratulations. I have four so if you ever need a spare, I'm stacking them deep and sellin' them cheap.

So since I have been here for such a long time I feel I need to tell you guys my great news!

After almost 9 years of being married, me and my wife are finally expecting our first child!

After sooo many years of no success I sort of just gave up on the idea of being a father. My life for the past 5 years since I got out of OTR and into local has basically been just working, woodturning (my addiction hobby), serving my church, and whatever else a not-so-adventerous-anymore man in his mid 20's does.

So indeed, what a surprise! I took yesterday off so we can get the gender reveal done and the results are in...

Its a boy!

OTR:

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.

Congratulations! And be assured that your posts from years ago still bear incredible fruit for those of us about to start the trucking journey. Kids are great and then one day they turn into teenagers. So enjoy the "great" years.

Thanks sir. Luckily the pre-trip doesn't change much so the expiration date on it isn't anytime soon. I still use the same pre-trip for my Old Dominion students in California with a few CA specific modifications.
