truckin'

My husband's new job is the same route as his old one, but with nearly brand new shiny equipment. The trucks are clean, up to date, and in perfect working order. They have a small bunk in the back. Because it is not forbidden I am able to ride with him on his route. He leaves at 8:00 pm and goes the 400 odd mile round trip to Indy from Montgomery Illinois. Most is highway driving on one of the most dangerous state highway's in the United states, I65. Lake Michigan is like a snow machine during the winter/spring months sending inches of snow down the highway. I road with hubby both Friday and Saturday night.

At his request, what a sweet man I have...he doesn't want me to be alone...especially on Valentines day...

Friday night I was sleepy and jumped in the sleeper bunk early in the trip, I was awaken to swearing and the CB radio alerting other truckers of the jack knifed semi and the car who was gawking in the ditch, I sprang up, shocked hubby by yelling, slow down!! Freezing rain and snow were pelting the roadway...

Silly wife, trucker hubby knows how to drive.

Last night was quieter and I snored most of the night in the bunk...

Isn't marriage grand??

I think its so neat you will ride with your husband. I used to go on service calls with Mel. Sometime to other towns and sometime right there in san antonio. I never got tired of waiting for him when he went in to repair equipment. Got lots of reading done, thinking, planing etc, You're a good wife Rose.

I think going with him on his trips is a great way to spend time with him. No distractions.
