• Travel

    Travel I come from a small town in north Texas. The population of Dodd City is just over 300 people. Such a small town that when I graduated in 1977, I graduated with 5 girls. I am not real sure about how long they have been there since we graduated, but I believe that they […]


  • Another day… Another dollar…

    I made it to Springville, UT today. I left Moriarty, NM this morning. I could have gone a little further, but I couldn’t get to where I hoped to be. I was really trying to get to Ogden, UT, but that’s still over 1.5 hours away. I didn’t have that much time available. It doesn’t […]


  • Time Off… It’s Just Not Enough

    Well, I got home last night early.  I’ve been home all day and yet I still don’t have everything done before heading out tomorrow.  I did get some rest today, but sometimes it just doesn’t seem fair that I don’t have a chance to do the things I want to do (like everyone else) because […]


  • Home for the Holidays!

    After 18 days on the road, I made it back to the house around 8:30pm last night.  Pugsly was very happy to see me.  He did his Dino impersonation on me and that’s always fun.  I watched a little bit of “Huckleberry Finn” on the Turner Movie Classics channel with Pat.  Kathy was at work, […]


  • Idea?

    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 […]


  • Open a can of “Whoop Paul’s Ass”

    Allergies have absolutely opened a can of “Whoop Paul’s Ass”, because I’m as sick as a dog!  It’s not holding me back as much as it used to because I don’t have a choice with my job…   I can’t just call in “sick”!  I bought some Benadryl last night.  I slept pretty good.  I’m hoping […]


  • Vacation just around the corner…

    I’m working local today because tomorrow is the start of my vacation.  I’ve got this weekend, then Monday thru Friday and next weekend OFF!  The last time I had two days off in a row was February 27th and 28th!  The last time I had a full 34 hour break was 31 days ago!  I […]


  • Cima Truck 5098

    Here’s a photo I took of my new big truck. Trips should be a lot more comfortable!


  • Bigger “Big” Truck

    I got to “move in” to my “new” big truck.  This is one of the newer trucks (newer than my truck was) and much bigger.  I believe that the runs will be a lot better because I will have more living room while on the road. Tomorrow I’ll be heading to Bryan, TX to pick […]


  • Laredo, TX

    At the start of the week, I took a load (small load) to Omaha, NE.  From there, I picked up a load of Pork Ham Skins going to Laredo, TX.  I’m here in Laredo where nothing happens fast.  When you go to other places, you expect them to happen a specific way.  You can’t think […]
