Welcome Back to the Long Haul Life!

Welcome back everyone! It’s been a long time since I have gotten with you. I hope you are doing well these days. This little clip is an update to how I am and where I am going. Change is in the air. Updates are coming with more details soon.

 

Cooking

Getting It Done

I’ve been home a long time. The whole month of September! One of the things I love about being an owner/operator is working when I want. So tomorrow I hit the road again, and I have no plans to get back home until thanksgiving. It’s a price to pay for month long vacations.

Anyway, I’m cooking food for the road and getting things done around the house. I hope you’re getting things done too.

Breakdown in Tucson

The Camshaft is wore out

I’m in Tucson, AZ for a few days while my truck is getting a new camshaft installed. I started hearing a noise from the engine that sorta sounded like something thumping, or knocking in a weird way. As I continued heading to LA from Florida, it became more apparent that I had a problem that needed to get checked. So on Monday morning I stopped at the Volvo truck shop in Tucson, AZ. They diagnosed a cam had worn down on #2 cylinder’s exhaust rocker. The repair estimate is $5540, and that is a big set back.  Fortunately I did not have to get the load I’m under repowered, and the load I had booked back to Nashville is still mine to pick up.

I’m joined by my family in this episode, and we talk about the ups and downs of family life while I earn my living over the road.  You will hear my wife and three daughters talk about what it’s like for them.  So join us in our conversation.  In a nut shell – it sucks.  But the job does give me the income I want, and it fits me well.  That’s why I do it.
