Hey congrats on the award!!!! Man, I drove really hard over the years but DOT officers were the only ones that signed any awards I was given. Actually, it's the awards they didn't give me that I'm the most proud of.


There's nothing in the world like cruisin around the country in a big rig. It's definitely an amazing lifestyle that you could never understand without experiencing it and you will never forget it once you have.



Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.

A beautiful story about an even more impressive acknowledge of your accomplishments and success. It is well-deserved I have no doubt.

And may I add "Slainte'" for a job well done!! (That's "to your health" in Gaelic)

Just goes to show it's not what's between your legs that makes a driver, but what's between your ears.

I know people who like putting others down suffer from a bad case of inferiority complex....Would have given anything to see the look on the face of the man who said you didn't have what it took to become a driver.

Thanks you guys and gals:) Its funny because the man walked up to me and told me how amazing I was and how proud he was off me. I have proven alot of folks wrong out here. It doesnt take a set of balls to be a great trucker. It takes common sense and respect.
