I’ll be home Dec 21, taking 7 days paid vacation. Back out on 29th.

Taking the wife to Monticello, AR to visit daughter and grandson’s family. Wife has 3 great-grandchildren that we haven’t seen in a year.

I’m taking the family out on Dec 23 for family dinner at Hoot’s Steaks & BBQ in McGeehe, AR. This place has great food.

Head home on 24th. Stop at casino near Pine Bluff, AR that my wife enjoys.

Spend quiet Christmas Day at home. I’ll bake some game hens.

Dennis, I love Hoot's B-B-Q!

I stop there often when running through that part of Arkansas. They have truck parking. I've often eaten there and taken my ten hour break. It's one of my favorite places to eat when on the road.

It'll be a relaxing day at home with my wife and kids, just the way we like it. My mother in law originally planned on coming over the 26th until she realized I work that day, instead she'll come by Xmas eve. When my wife told me it'd be the 26th I said something to the effect of this being the best Christmas ever. Nope, they went and changed it. DARN!

The kids love having a movie night and having a "sleep over" in the basement the night before Christmas. We pull their mattresses out then my wife and i sleep on the couches. Unbeknownst to them, Santa leaves their gifts under the tree upstairs around 8pm while we're watching movies

I will be OTR. Prime is raffling off $250,000 in prizes for those who stay out. $25,000 cash is the top prize. I need a car.


Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.


Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

Working one half of my standard 4day, 22 and 23. The outfit doesnt run Christmas Eve or Christmas day. 26-30 our son and his wife are flying to AZ from ILL to spend time with us.

Smoking: a full packer brisket, some LaCosteña jalapeno marinated chicken thighs, 6 different seasonings of cream cheese, apple pie and blueberry pie are all on the dinner menu for the 27th. It will be good to see them.

Safe travels to all, and wishes for an enjoyable RamaHanukKwanzaMas to all. Or Merry Christmas. Whichever, if any, apply.
