Hi gang... long time, no post. Sorry... been busy uprooting my life. Big changes! I moved to where I ultimately want to retire; Lewes DE. Tried like heck to work something out so I could continue on with Swift running on the Walmart account. In the end, just wouldn’t work for me. I reluctantly parted best of friends... with an understanding my return is always welcome.

So... fast forward. I’ve been shuttling doubles and single 36’ trailers for PFG. Love running doubles and building and breaking down the set.

I’ll try not to be a stranger.

Doubles:

Refers to pulling two trailers at the same time, otherwise known as "pups" or "pup trailers" because they're only about 28 feet long. However there are some states that allow doubles that are each 48 feet in length.

Glad to see you back. How long did it take to get the hang of building the doubles?

About 1 week. Backing the dolly up to the trailing unit was the hardest part. It’s 12’ long and requires minimal steering input. I run 4 sets per night; 2 loads and 2 empties.

Thank you!

You've NO CLUE HOW MUCH you were missed, G !

Some of the 'boys & girls' reached out to me (the little P/I I can be....) .... I came up 'short' ... LoL!

Good luck and the BEST TO YOU, in the new endeavors, G. Thanks for letting the gang know.

I really hope you will continue to support the 'pintle hook' crowd on here, going forward!

Always happy to learn myself, good sir.

TYSM!

Congrats on move to Tax Free Delaware and the new Gig.

Meanwhile, I took a "B"aby step. I'm running a school bus route for Custer's. Once my divorce is over and things settled, I'll be going after my A.

Congratulations!

That SUHWEET looking Volvo had to be an attractive recruiting tool for Swift Dedicated. 😊

I hope PFG treats you well and Lewes is all you want it to be.

Again, CONGRATULATIONS!🎉
