Hey Jess and Larin...and Charlie

This is mainly for you guys since I haven't talked to ya's in quite awhile. The 2 things I miss about my long-hauls is my visits with you guys and the visits with my mom. I have been working 12 hour days and then some as I want to learn my new duties as completely and quickly as possible. I am starting to feel comfortable with it now. We will be implementing a new program starting this next week and I am heavily involved in kicking it off. I am excited about seeing you guys soon, I might try and get a load I can take down to Layton next weekend so I can come and visit my grandson on my birthday. Those are the presents (presence) I value most. Love you all very much and am looking forward to seeing you soon.

Mom and Dad

I thought mom and I ought to start one of these also. I can at least keep ya'all posted as to where I'm at on a daily basis. Today, Thursday, I am stuck in South Bend Indiana for the second straight day. My truck broke down Tuesday night by Plymouth Indiana. It broke down while in 12th gear, so I couldn't move it anywhere, but luckily I glided down a hill and got a green arrow so it came to rest in a Pilot truckstop lot. I was in the way of other truck traffic but there was nothing I could do until a tow truck came at 4am EDT Wednesday. So I have been at a Quality Inn in South Bend IN. since Wednesday morning. As of this moment, they are having a part overnighted and should have me back on the road tomorrow. It's hot and muggy here and Tuesday night I slept in my reefer for a few hours until the tow truck got there. It was the only place I could get cool.. I am gonna add pictures here as I figure things out. See you later......
