truck

the end of an era



ast night I picked-up my final load of cabinets for this account. I'm taking it to Colorado and then heading to Omaha, where I will set in motion the things necessary to become an owner/operator. This cabinet account is all I've known for the past three years - all I've known of trucking. The future is uncertain, new, and crazy-looking which makes me excited and nervous. It's an adventure inside an adventure. I'm one of those weird people who loves change; welcomes it and thrives on it. Here's to the future.


I'm going to visit with justamy for a few hours here in Kansas City. I should already be doing that, except Robert misunderstood me this morning. I had driven all night last night and was taking a nap while he drove this leg of the trip. When I woke up, we were in Topeka, a good 60 miles beyond my desired rendezvous point. So we turned around. No sense in getting to Denver too early and just sitting all evening.


This should also be Robert's last week on the truck. He's going to be taking his mid-training break and going home for a week, so he will likely be getting off the truck when we arrive in Omaha. Hopefully I can acquire another student while I'm there.
