Greetings, dear readers! It’s been a while, I know. Sorry for the long hiatus; I could say I’ve been busy, but I’m always busy, and that’s no excuse. I have some good news, though! At long last, I’ve finally obtained the mobile wifi hotspot from Calyx Institute! Now I’ll have internet on all my devices all across the country, which means it’ll be a lot easier to make blog posts and keep you all updated on my adventures! I’m sure you’re all delighted.
In other news, I spent the last four days at home, enjoying a much-needed break and celebrating my 2-year anniversary with my wife, Christina. We had a great time, though we missed out on seeing some dear friends of ours due to circumstances beyond everyone’s control. C’est la vie; there’s always next time! We did, however, manage to wrangle one of our friends into a delicious dinner at an Asian buffet near our home, so that was nice.
Hurricane Harvey hasn’t done much to the Dallas/Fort Worth area, thank goodness. The truck yard where Christina’s been learning to drive has been a bit muddy with the occasional rain, but that’s about the extent of the inconvenience. Speaking of which, Christina’s training continues, and she draws ever nearer to graduation. She hopes to have her CDL in the next couple of weeks, after which she’ll be joining me on the road as my trainee and, later, my teammate. I hope you’ll all keep your fingers crossed and make a wish or pray or send positive vibes for her success on her next CDL driving test! She’s been working hard and making great strides, and she’s ready to graduate and begin her career.
I’m currently hooked to a load heading from Roanoke, Texas out to Georgia. However, I’m currently stopped at a truck stop, awaiting repairs. The trailer they loaded at the shipper has two missing marker lights and one marker light that is inoperable, which means it’s illegal to drive. I won’t be able to continue my journey until these lights are fixed. Hopefully they’ll be able to fix them in the morning, because I am eager to get rolling!
Well, that’s all the news I have for the moment. I hope you’re all having a wonderful day as you’re reading this. Much love, dear readers! Until next time, remember to keep your hands and feet inside the ride at all times, and wait until the ride comes to a complete stop before exiting. Good night!
