Been trucking all week

Well, I did survive my first week back as a OTR driver. It has been 5 years since I did any kind of over the road driving. But I did manage to survive the first week back, I only ran about 1500 miles but it was enough to put me back in the groove.
Boy, has a lot changed since I was out on the road. Seems there is a lot more trucks on the road than used to be. Maybe it is just me, but seems this talk of strikes has got MORE trucks on the road.

My company is just a small company of about 10 trucks, and as far as I know we are not shutting down. Although the owner would like to shut down, but for now they are making money. So it seems pointless to do it now to them. As for me, well I have no say in the matter as I just got back to work I need to keep rolling.

But anyway back to me being back on the road now. If you comment to anything on this blog, and I don't see it before Sunday it will not get posted until the following Friday. I don't have a lap top yet, so posting here will only be done from the house.

I read somebodies comment on another post that said the poster didn't believe I was a truck driver, that he thought I was a desk jockey...The poster also said it was because I didn't allow the comments to show up until I moderated them...

I want to clear this up. The reason when you comment on the blog it goes into moderation, is because I don't think you as readers would want to read how to enlarge your penis in 5 days or something like that. Or get a bunch of links to porn posted on here. I set the comments to moderation to keep out this kind of internet trash!

All comments so far have been posted, and will get posted as soon as I am home. Sorry but this is how it has to be.

Anyway thanks for reading, and posting your comments some have been a riot and others have been eye opening keep them coming!

This is more of a private email for you since I couldn't find an email on your site.

I've read some of your posts here and was wondering if you would want to write for us at Life on the Road (.com)

It's sponsored by International Trucks, but we can write about anything trucking. There's absolutely no advertising, not even for International and the writers get a small "thanks for writing" for each post. It's not much, but could add up. Plus we're not looking for three page articles, just a blog post once in awhile.

All you have to do is write, all of the support is taken care of.

Check out the site, let me know,

There is no reason for the company to shutdown if they're earning money. Besides trucking is one of the best business nowadays
