Hi all,

I just wanted to give the update, so many of you have given warm wishes, kind thoughts and prayers. My mom Capt. Linda L Reinhardt (USAF Ret) lost her battle with the terminal illness she fought against since 2019 yesterday at 1145 AM EDT. I got the news while driving the U-haul through Nebraska. I am currently in Clarkesville, TN spending the night and have to get the Uhaul (safely) to FL then onward to PA to take care of her final arrangements.

Just thought I would pass that on to my brothers and sisters on the road. Thanks so much for the prayers and thoughts over the years.



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.

My sincere condolences Moe.

I’ve had to endure several close losses like this, some expected, some not.

Perspective…redirects one’s focus on what is truly important.
