Well as some of you know, I had taken a week off. Its been a good week off. I've got about 60hrs left of hometime before I gotta head back to the terminal and head back out on the road... I've found a few leads for a local gig that I will follow up with through the next few weeks. One is for a moving company that has a brand new truck with no driver who is qualified too. (no class A) and also USPS is hiring for mail delivery, tho not a "driving" position, it still pays 15/hr...

Its been a productive week. Spent time with all my family, had a few drinks the other night (not much of a drinker but was nice) and had some time to myself out of the truck to decompress.... I must say, being home is making it harder for me to want to leave, but thats how this game is played... I've got roughly 6 more months left with my 1 year, and have enjoyed most of the last 6.

I figured Id give you all an update since I haven't been around much...

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.

Keep us posted on your mental process through this first year.

Is it what you expected or are you having second thoughts. I just want to know what you're going through emotionally.

thanks for sharing :)
