Thank you guys. The writer was going through the different posts here on Trucking Truth and messaged me about 10 days ago. We chatted close to an hour about lots of different things. Didn't hear any more from him until Monday when he wanted me to proofread the comments he thought he was going to use. I had to do a couple corrections because I didn't retire from the Air Force. Then he asked me if I had any pictures of me and my truck. I finally found the one my brother took on my birthday when we met up and then I did a couple selfies. I don't usually do them and I didn't think they turned out hardly at all.

Yesterday he sent the article to me and I passed it on to a few friends. I got an email from my dispatcher that brings me out of NC to head west back to Idaho...he was teasing me. The office manager sent me an email and said it was a very good article.

Yesterday I ran to the office to turn in trip envelopes. Walked through the door and everybody was telling me I was a celebrity and famous and just being silly. But what they had done was to bring it up on the computer, print it out and hung it on the wall!! 🙄Hope it doesn't stay up there too long.

Dispatcher:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Laura, that article is going to be up there for years.smile.gif

I have no doubt that there is someone out there in a similar situation who isn't sure what to do with his/her life who will be inspired by your success. Yours is an amazing story.
