Thank you kind Sir.

G-Town,

Glad to see you back. I hope you enjoy it in Lewes. I lived in Seaford for many years and loved every day and the state in general. I drove for the old Conway before XPO and the doubles experience became second nature. We only moved to Florida after retiring to be in a warmer climate. Enjoy your new gig and the state.

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.

I'm still so excited to have you back, I'm stuttering in my mind, haha!

Have you considered updating your location in your profile, tho?

Just me . . .

G-town, it’s good to see you back. I miss your direct, blunt, no-nonsense style. Kudos to your move to a better place. I hope you will enjoy your new doubles gig as much as you did working for Swift.
