The Double-Edged Sword of Going OTR - Four-Wheeler Goes OTR November 7 2017

Post by: Carrie Anderson

It is time for some real talk. Of all the lessons I learned during my OTR experience with Summer (read more about why here), this was probably one of the most powerful. So if you don't like mushy, gushy stuff, if you don't like being getting real, you can skip this blog. It's okay. I understand. But if you can handle it, buckle up.

43 Year South Dakota Trucking Veteran Turns in Her Keys October 26 2017

Post by: Carrie Anderson

Jeannie Pritts has been driving truck for 43 years. In fact, it would have been 48 years if she hadn’t had a five year break for a neck injury. Her late husband was involved in trucking for 64 years. In all that time they never had a single accident, but they saw quite a few. Now that she is facing retirement, Jeannie took some time to chat with us and give her perspective on how trucking has shaped her over the years.

Success and Failure - Summer's Road Diary July 25 2017

Post by: Summer Jakopak

In the Spirit of Not Lying to Myself...

As I talked at length about before, I’m not being terribly successful at eating the way I know I should.  However, it only proves that I’m human, right?  And with being human also comes bad choices.  The good thing about it is that we have the ability to analyze the choices we have made and CHOOSE to make different ones.  Sometimes the analytical process is a painful one - but the results can be worth the battle - at least that’s what I’m banking on!
