Hey thanks for stopping by

This will be my ongoing blog, or at least an attempt at one. Being a truck driver who is also a firm believer, and follower of our savior, being OTR(Over The Road) posses many difficulties. This will be the my trucking chronicles.
I welcome comments, suggestions, or questions.

Going Greyhound?

After what seemed like a much longer bus ride than it actually was I finally made it to Louisville KY at 12am.
From Zanesville Ohio to Louisville is roughly a 4 hr drive, but not when you go Greyhound. So with just a few hours of tossing and turning I was up and off to a $9 egg sandwich breakfast, then to orientation. 
The driver of the hotel shuttle who picked me up just a few hours earlier showed me where the in-house restaurant was, made some comment about me not getting much sleep then walked directly out the door and took the rest of the group to the hotel! Luckily for me the next driver was in 20 minutes. Turns out it didn't matter because we all sat around for when we got there. 
               ( James 1:20 For the anger of men dose not produce the righteousness of God) 
As the morning progressed the onset of paper work continued. What could have been a effective, efficient trip to a medical facility, to preform a urine sample, hair follicle sample, full physical, and physical endurance test turned out to be a 5 (count em 5!) hour ordeal.  For me everything went fine all the way till I was asked if I had ever had time sleeping, I said I had a sleep study once.
 (insert dramatic music) So unless I can convince the Dr. that If he will give the order to have the inverter installed Ill put my c pap in the truck. I will have to take a bus back to Ohio, see the sleep Dr. on tuesday and might have to take a bus back, of course hats the worst case scenario.

Proverbs 3:1
Trust the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.

Romans 8:28
And we know that to them that love God all things work together for good, even to them that are called according to his purpose.



  1. One question: Did they take it easy on plucking your hair for a follicle test? You don't have a ton to spare, you know.
