Dean and I teamed on our last run and was broke down for 4 days and 3 nights. That was not good for my pocketbook.  We are in Oregon today, waiting to pick up our load going to Winchester, VA.  This will be a good run, but we got to our pick up a day early.  I guess that’s OK, though it doesn’t help my pocketbook again.  I want to see how this run is going to do for my pocketbook.  If it does good, then I’m willing to continue.  If I can’t make enough money doing this, I may have to find another job.

I keep thinking about Trucker Tom (Tom Wiles).  He drives for Schaffer.  When he stops and has to set for a while waiting on a load, he is still making a little money with his podcast.  It makes me wonder if I shouldn’t be trying to do the same type of thing.  If I did, it would probably mean working for someone else and the need to purchase another laptop computer to be able to handle writing on the web site.  I’d probably have to purchase a camera and/or video camera for recording my exploits around the country.

I don’t know about this.  I would have to have a specific subject that I would talk about and hope there is some interest in people wanting to hear what I have to say.  I’d have to be better at writing and updating my blog.  That is a chore in itself?  Well, this can’t be done while I am working as a team.  I guess I need to dream on and start planning this.  It won’t ever go anywhere if I don’t plan the thing.

The other biggest hurdle of this is convincing or justifying that this idea is a sound idea, to my wonderful wife.  This is really a good thing, because, most of the time, if she doesn’t like it, it’s probably not a good idea.  So my first action is to do a little planning to see how to make this work, then the second action is to talk with Kathy about it.  The progress I make on the second action determines if there are any more actions and we move forward.

Keep the shiny side up!  God bless Texas!
