I think I got that part down lol, but if I could just stop hitting my head on every dang thing 🤣

rofl-3.gifThere's a thread on the SHORT TRUCKS in the General catergory, too.... rooftop heights; I'm only 5'2" w/boots on!rofl-3.gif

sorry.gif Right above this, look at Grandpa Clark's diary...talking about a bruise!!sorry.gif

So happy for ya, gal ~! It's amazingly awesome, is it not??? To me, it is. I have O positive blood; universal donor/diesel ~ haha!

I just was writing my resume in my head a few minutes ago . . I 'clerked' at Miller Trailers (Dry vans, yet WAS a huge competitor in the day) in Bradenton, Florida at 12 years old; my bro'in'law was the CEO / CPA .. and my (late) mom was an AP clerk. I got to audit the BOL's according to the PRO#'s.

At 17, pulling boat propellers, shafting, and underwater gear, in Florida for General Propeller (Sea Ray Boats.) HotShot, w/a 28'trailer; '89 Chevy 3/4 ton 3 on the tree, and OF COURSE I was under the 26,001 GVWR ~!

Then, I worked at ETCO (Electrical Terminal Corporation) in Florida...we manufactured spark plug & distributor terminal boots.. and I'd pull the bosses boats to and from the marinas. 48'Fountain, 53'Wellcraft.

Now, if this ARM ever heals; I'll be out there, retiring MY guy! Wanna join me?!?!?

Enjoy, m'lady. I love it; I miss it. I still ride with at times, but it just makes me want to drive, more!

Best to you both;

~ Anne ~ (and Tom.. .sometimes!)

ps: Brandon; she's a KEEPER!

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

GVWR:

Gross Vehicle Weight Rating

GVWR is the maximum operating weight of a vehicle as specified by the manufacturer, minus any trailers.

Dry Van:

A trailer or truck that that requires no special attention, such as refrigeration, that hauls regular palletted, boxed, or floor-loaded freight. The most common type of trailer in trucking.

Thanks, girl ~ !

It's that O'positive blood type; Universal Diesel, haha~!!

I owe you a reply elsewhere, and you shall receive ASAP, promise. :)

Y'all are awesome, gal. Being a trucker's wife isn't the easiest task either, by ANY means. Big Scott & I just had a chat about that yesterday. And then Davy's situation.

Brandon's lucky to have you & vice versa, y'all stay BLESSED!

~ Anne ~

ps: Brandon, keep on keeping on!!! If WMPF's DC for us were closer, you'd be having a 'joiner.' The closest one has no openings, currently. Never know, they open up at times, we'll keep checking~!!

Substance Abuse Professional

The Substance Abuse Professional (SAP) is a person who evaluates employees who have violated a DOT drug and alcohol program regulation and makes recommendations concerning education, treatment, follow-up testing, and aftercare.
