So, I was visiting a local Ross for some supplies before I leave for training this Sunday and what did I see you ask? A Werner Transport tractor pulling a Swift Transport trailer... Is there something I should know about this? Wish I would have taken a pic of it.. Looked bizarre to say the least..

Swift has over 50,000 trailers they rent them out to anyone.

Companies haul a trailer with a different name on it all the time. Schneider-Walmart. Prime-Henderson. Werner-ABF. It's nothing we need to concern ourselves with and definitely nothing that should impact our decision.

They give you the load, you take the trailer and deliver it and get paid. It's as easy as that. Heck, I've driven a pink truck with a Prime Floral trailer (has a giant flower in the center) and I didn't care. I get what I get, right?

I do what I can! smile.gif

I wish I could do another one with a more experienced me but I just can't find the hour a day to devote to writing like I used to. I'm a lot busier than I was back then. For example, my next three days I have to drive a minimum of 600 miles.

But I have other ideas in store including a new "What would you do" thread coming out on the 22nd and this one will be awesome and tricky!

Awesome! And I must say...you're way more organized than I am. I don't even schedule my releases for things on the site ahead of time.

Daniel on something like that I would seriously just have to laugh and remind myself it all pays the same.
