My guy is currently doing long hauls. He used to be an owner/operator but the economy basically busted his business. Fuel prices and loss of contracts did him in and he had to file chap 13 and lost his rig. So he's back to driving for a company. He's now on his 4th week out and damn I miss him but I have to say it's not as bad as before because with cellphones we can keep in touch constantly. He had his first lot lizard approach him over the weekend and fed her a granola bar to get her to leave him alone. I told him not to feed the wildlife cause it will just make them come back. lol
I've enjoyed listening to the soap opera chatter on the CB and came to the conclusion that the CB is basically just a chat room for truckers. You have your discussion artists, your trolls, your conspiracy theorists, and you have your SPAM advertisers and porn ads. We sat all weekend on the phone with each other just laughing about the chatter since he was stuck in Houston for 2 days.
