I decided to come out of retirement after 30 year over the road and go back to work after a 3 attempt in an RV retired to fishing/ridin for the rest of my life. I just spent 22 hours on Greyhound to get to St. Louis MO for a 1 week orientation before jumping in a truck so I can run up and down Rte75 5 days a week and 2-3 days of to fish and ride of course. The weather here is beautiful for ridin and I miss my wing already. I will never ride a bus again...I'd rather walk and camp in a tent...**Craig**

I wanted to ride my wing out here... I asked to the money for the bus ticket and I'd ride out...They didn't go for that...well one week in St.Louis I'll find some trouble I can investigate... don't want to sit in the motel vegetating everyday...although they do have a pool and a bar...**Craig**

have fun once orientation is done, i did. there were four or five other guys that i knew there and we would hop in my van and go over to anderson, in and have a good time. when orientation was over i got sent back home because the new trucks hadn't arrived so we had nothing to drive. a couple of my buddys got sent home too and i got paid to take them home as well as myself. we got reduced pay until we could get a truck or team up with another driver
