With that white Volvo, did the company give you a choice of sandals, or a track suit to wear? Hopefully that one keeps you rolling.

As you can probably tell by my appearance, I'm not a sandals kind of guy. But, I guess I'm part of the white Volvo mafia, de facto. shocked.png

No, I study the drivers at truck stops, shippers and receivers. I can guess with accuracy what truck they are in many times by a driver's appearance.

Shipper:

The customer who is shipping the freight. This is where the driver will pick up a load and then deliver it to the receiver or consignee.

Im startung to pickup on things like thay also. My question is, how? Anyway, I don't even own a pair of sandals so you won't catch me at a truck stop with them. And I don't drink soda pop either. Lol.

Hi Anne!

All us well. I don't do much on the internet or social media or otherwise. I'm just doing my thing in trucking. I still love it and am convinced I should have been doing this along rime ago. Been thinking about writing a new lost about my experiences. But when I get off the road all I do is eat, sleep, and try to fish as nych as I can.

I still haven't a a sandal to my name. 🤣

However, I am amazed at how many people wear them. In my opinion those things are terrible and have no place whatsoever in trucking except to shower, if one must. Seriously, wear some shoes. And I really don't care who doesn't agree with me on that point. They just aren't appropriate.

Here's a picture of ne and my girl Roxie.
