I love the food and the shows too... My father was a Gambler. Hard Core. I don't even mess with the slots or black jack. If I'm going to gamble I play craps and I win. But that takes a bankroll and time. And nerves of steel. And time... as I get older I've lost all of that.. lol

I have no plans to leave Prime in the near future. I'm getting great miles and still enjoying the open road.

Hope you get back on the road soon.

Don't devalue yourself. Many great opportunities open now.

I don't know about the rest of you folks, I left Prime just over a year ago and will be looking into getting back with them once I complete all my medical stuff this summer.

Since leaving Prime, I have driven for Barr Nunn and am presently driving for JB Hunt. When with Prime I started in the reefer division and changed over to the flatbed division & absolutely loved it at Prime.

So just because the grass looks greener on the other side of the fence does not always mean it is.

Just my .02 worth on the subject.

Congrats on the year! And along with all that Prime swag, I think Brett will let you change your status to "Experienced Driver" now.

Hey Chris, I saw this the other day and meant to congratulate you, but then I got on the road and it got buried.

I still grin every time I see those dancing bananas. Just thought you might get a kick out of 'em too!

Hey if you ever get a load picking up at the SAPA plant in Delhi, LA send me a PM and I'll see if we can't get together down there. I see a lot of Prime drivers coming in here for loads - Bud has been here, but we missed each other. One of these days I'm gonna meet up with some of you guys out here.

Absolutely! Once you get that first year in you're no longer a rookie. You can change your status to "experienced driver".
