The Big Kahuna

Ladies and Gentlemen,

For years, even before the internet (some of you may remember that), I have been looking for ways to make money from home. Back then, we had things like chain letters (which turned out to be illegal), mlm, real estate ponzi schemes, and the like. I have spent literally hundreds of dollars on books, tapes cd's, and dvd's making these get rich quick promises. Of course, they were all lies, and I never earned a dime back.
More recently, after I hurt my back in 2011, I looked at, and became, an Amazon seller. That is not a bad business to get into, but you really need to know what you are doing, and the support I got was less than ideal. Also, the profit margins on the products you sell are not that great, meaning you have to sell a whole lot to rank and make a good profit. Amazon is very particular. They change their Terms of Service on a regular basis, and without notice, so you need to be super vigilant in order not to get blackballed from seller central. I made a few bucks on Amazon, it was going quite well, but not well enough to replace my income from my job. After a couple of years, and a series of business blunders on my part, the business has ground to a halt. I am still technically a seller, but only get a sale once in a while.
I was depressed about the whole Amazon fiasco, but I never lost hope. I knew deep in my bones that there was an opportunity out there that would make me rich. I have finally found it. I call it "The Big Kahuna," although it is called something else in real life (you'll have to join to find out.)  This is the one I've been searching for: it has everything a good company should have. Great people to provide answers to any questions you may have. A profitable pay structure that you can start earning from within a matter of days. Live events to actually meet the successful people who are building 6, 7 even 8 figure incomes from this program.
I am currently building my team. I am seeking people who are sick and tired of the 9-5 grind, truckers who are sick and tired of all the BS in their line of work, and working people who can't seem to make ends meet. Not month at the end of your money? Consider joining me, and let's start an adventure together. Click the link below for more info.

Lateral Moves

Ok, so this is gonna sound counter-intuitive, but I'm changing jobs. You know what JOB is an acronym for? Just Over Broke. And I'm changing mine. You may as "Who does this guy think he is, telling us about getting rich, and he's still working?" or something to that effect. Well, I just couldn't see myself unloading trailers any more, so I found a job where I can just drop & hook and drive. No, I am not a success yet, but I have the desire and the will to make it happen. Do you?

Remember the Big Kahuna I was talking about? Well, the ocean is starting to shift and swell, and that big wave is getting ready, so don't get left behind on this thing.  I can assure you, that I am ALL IN on becoming rich with this program, even if I don't know all the nuts & bolts techie stuff just yet. That stuff will come, you just need the hunger and desire to go get it. Will it be easy? No, no one said it would, but nothing in life worth having is easy.

If you are serious about joining me and my team, please sign up on my mailing list. You will receive a link to a very special video which will describe this incredible opportunity for you.
Do you want to be your own boss, and get off those dangerous highways? Think about it. Wouldn't your family appreciate it if you were around more often? Wouldn't you love to have a business that runs all by itself, cranking out cash for you, while you're on the lake fishing or watching your kids play? That's what we have here

As for me, I will work this new job until I can afford to quit trucking for good, and that day can't come soon enough, no offense guys and gals. That's just how I feel.

More soon,

I'm Baaaack!

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I know I've been gone for a while. I got injured back in February of 2011, and was laid up for over a year. It was not a happy time in my life, but it made me look at my future and make some hard decisions. Then I got involved with a business that ultimately failed, and I wound up losing a lot of money.
Did you choose trucking, or did trucking choose you? I know for a lot of you reading this, trucking chose you: It is in your blood, you were born to drive, and couldn't see yourself doing anything else.
To these people I say "God Bless You."

However, there are those of you like me who chose trucking. For me, it was a means to an end. I learned how to drive a big rig, got my CDL, and went to work. I made a decent living at it, put food on the family table, and kept a roof over our heads. Sure, I made a few mistakes along the way, but I'd say I've done a pretty good job But unloading trailers over the last 15 years has taken its toll on my body, and I'm looking to get out. The roads are getting more and more dangerous from where I sit.

Let me make something clear: I am not trying to convince you to quit your job or get out of trucking.
On the contrary, we need good drivers out there. Maybe you know someone who is unhappy with their life, perhaps a friend or relative, maybe even your wife. Maybe someone is not living up to their full potential. It is to those people that this site speaks.

The business that I'm going to show you costs peanuts to join, gives you not only one-on-one tutoring, but you become part of a team of like-minded small business owners who are willing and able to help you achieve success. They come from all walks of life, and are from all over the world. The one thing we all have in common is the desire to help each other out.

So please accept this gift from me as a token of friendship, a welcome handshake if you will. Just put your name and email in the box and I will send you the free ebook "Web Marketing For Dummies," a 400 page guide worth $40.  Then, when the time is right, I will unveil this new program to you. Keep in touch with me. I am  all over the interwebs, and together we will make each other rich.

More soon,

Just an Update

So, I haven't posted to this thing in a while, as you can see. I ran out of B.S., basically (who, me?)
I've been spending a lot of time on Twitter lately, so, if you're on there, hit me @insanetruckdriv.
I've been thinking about some phrases I've used, not only to describe other "drivers" out there, but stupid little rhymes I say to myself. For example, when backing the truck into a door, I'll say "Easy there, Stevie Square," or "One-shot Charlie is in the house!" (if I back up perfectly, without pulling up.) Of course, if I don't get it right (nobody's perfect) I'll say "One-shot Charlie doesn't live here any more. Sometimes, I'll say "Break it down, Charlie Brown," if I'm on an exit ramp, see a cop, that kind of thing.

Here are some expressions I use when describing other drivers: Warning! Explicit!
1) "Perhaps you'll grow a brain some day - not today, fortunately"
2) "Please don't be a Douchebag. Ooops, too late!"
3) "If you have the cojones to pass me, go ahead! Otherwise, get off my ass!"
4) "Slowpokes in front, Speed Demons riding my ass"
5) Various other unpleasantries

Hey, am I the world's best driver? No, but at least I use a little common sense. You know, I've said this before: 55mph is an antiquated system, we all realize that. I try to be some where in the middle, between the "Nervous Nellies" and the "Speed Demons." More and more, it seems, I'm the one being passed, rather than passing others.
George Carlin, one of my all-time favorite comedians, described driving perfectly: "Anyone who drives slower than you is a moron, and anyone who drives faster than you is a maniac!" I've modified that to: "Anyone that drives faster than me is a Douchebag, and anyone that drives slower than me is a Turd Ferguson"
Crazy drivers, we all have to live with them. If you are one of them, I only have one thing to say: SIMMER THE FUCK DOWN, ASSHOLE!

Time & Space

"If you have the space, take it!" - old truck driver's axiom

I know I've used the phrase above before, but it's actually very important; we, as truckers/drivers are managers: of our own time and space. It's important as we're driving down the road, to make sure we are aware of everything around our vehicle (Trucking 101). Even moreso with me, I have to manage the space inside my trailer, since I'm in there half the time I'm working (probably more). So, I'm constantly moving empty pallets out of the way, clearing out garbage, cardboard, etc. to allow more room to maneuver. It gets especially important during the winter months, when your footing becomes absolutely crucial. The absolute LAST thing you want is to lose your balance as you're bringing a heavy load down the ramp.
Time is another thing. I know most of you experienced drivers out there know how to manage your 14 hours/11 driving, and it's very important. Of course, if you run paper logs you can always fudge the numbers. Heck, I've done it myself. Just don't get caught! ; )
Recently, I've had a different problem; we use onboard recorders, so it's impossible to cheat. I mean, my routes are usually 10-12 hrs at MOST, so I sometimes "pad" my hours, by staying on duty, once I get to the truckstop. Problem is, I get distracted, and forget to go into the berth (on the computer), and by the time I realize it, it's too late. So, I wind up starting too soon, which puts me in violation for TWO days, not just one. There's a pretty tight timeframe that we work with, so having to wait the 10 hours (computer time) would throw things all helter-skelter. Here's an example: I did this the other week, and I didn't realize I hadn't hit the "berth" button on the computer til about 4 in the afternoon (my shift should have ended about 12:30pm). So, you hit the berth button, but now you can't start till 2am. Screw that - I gotta get moving by midnite, so I'm in violation for that whole day, plus having "worked" 3.5 hrs too much the first day. It's a stupid mistake, but that's what you get when you deal with computers. If I were on paper, then it would be no probs to change the numbers accordingly - see what I mean?
Anyways, even the best of us make mistakes like that. I hit an overhanging storefront a couple months ago, busting up not only the overhang, but putting a nice dent in the front of the trailer as well. It was again, a stupid mistake - I was trying to avoid an island in the parking lot, and didn't look to my left, and crunch! One of our top guys rolled his unit in Indiana not long ago, coming back from MI - said it was due to the wind, but some of us think otherwise. Even empty, I've never had it so windy that the truck rolled (or even came close). I've heard of those who've
been "blown over," but those incidents were in open areas, where nothing shielded the trucks from the wind. Ths was on the 80/94 corridor between Michigan City, IN and the southeast Chicago burbs. Something fishy there - I think he fell asleep...

Back to the Grind...

Yeah, I've been on vacation this past week, and, as usual, got squat done. I dunno what it is, but I have absolutely NO motivation when I'm off. I make a long list of things to do ( I know I've whined about this in the past), and, before you know it, it's time to get back to work, and the whole list is still there. The wife is very supportive - "You should relax, you're on vacation," she
says, but it's of little comfort. Then I get down on myself for not accomplishing anything.
So, I wanted to talk about drinking: I "quit" drinking a few years back, a conscious choice on my part. It really had nothing to do with outside influences, social or otherwise. I just decided that I really didn't need alcohol to make me feel good. Besides, alcohol depresses the brain, which is the last thing I need (being depressed and all). Why not choose stimulants, one might ask. Well, most are illegal (caffeine is my drug of choice), and I really need to be more aware of what I'm putting into the ol' body, a know? Of course, this past week was also the week I was to quit smoking - HA! I always refer back to the saying "If at first you don't succeed, quit, quit again..."
See, the difference is that nicotine is highly addictive, where, at least for me, alcohol is not. Just like when I gave up smoking pot in my 20's, I had no "withdrawals" or even missed it that much. Same with booze. I realize it's a big part of our society and culture. "Hey, let's get together for a drink..." But, I guess I try not to put myself into those situations, consciously or un.
There are occasions when I'll have the random beer; my wife's aunt & uncle used to have a big party Christmas Eve, called the "open house," where relatives and friends would gather for great Italian cooking, and, of course, a couple of cocktails. That was the one night of the year when I would indulge. They didn't live far from us, and all the food absorbed most of the alcohol anyway.
Do I sound like an addict? I dunno, my wife would drive home if I ever drank too much, which was rare. However, in recent years, her uncle passed away, and her aunt was a little too frail and overwhelmed to continue the "open house" tradition. It's kind of sad, 'cause it was a really fun occasion. So, I have to find another day to have my one beer. We went out for father's day, and I had a Sam Adams Summer Ale. Boy, was that good.
I guess I believe that drinking is part of the "dumbing down" of our society: I'm not a prude, and moderate consumption of alcohol is OK with me. It's just these people every weekend, and every holiday, who have to get liquored up, just to have a good time. We just had Fourth of July, and mixing alcohol with high explosives is a sure way to get into trouble. I don't wish harm to anyone, but people just don't THINK! Same is true for those who get behind the wheel after drinking; I just don't understand it. I suppose growing up with an alcoholic father has something to do with my attitude. He recovered, thank God, but the just horrific stories and incidents I could tell you has left me a bit jaded on the whole "partying" scene. I came to learn about, and be on the fringes of 12-step recovery milieu. I never really got into the whole ACOA/Al-Anon life, but perhaps I should have, I don't know. Anyway, all I know is, I don't miss the "sauce," and can have a nice time without it.
