Change...

Change is usually a good thing... At least I'm hoping so.  We had a decision to make and it had to be a yes from both of us.  We have been having problems with the fleet manager/driver manager we have been with since she took over... Trust and attitude... BIG things when working together. Due to things that had happened, and are happening, we have little to no trust in our current DM.  So we had a decision to make... Leave Central, leave our current fleet, or stay with what we know and put up with it... Well leaving Central was TOO big of a leap, and we do have a contractual commitment with the lease (even though yes we COULD get out of it if we wanted or needed to go that far). Staying with the current situation also we just couldn't handle. So when an opportunity presented itself we had to decide to take it or not. Well we decided to try it. It's a new dedicated fleet just starting up.  It will be going from CA to FL to GA then back to CA.  Bonus is that the spot in CA is 20 miles away from home... So that means we can be at the house weekly!! Not a bunch of time, but still home! That is one of the biggies. The second is consistent miles... Sure the same lane might/and probably will get boring, but looking at the larger picture, it will be an income we can depend on!! AND more consistent miles than what we are doing now!! We had invested so much time and energy into our previous dedicated fleet, and gotten to know the client and had plans thought out for the future... However I still think this will be a better move for us, especially at this time.  Time will tell though... But I have HOPE!!

    2. Try it. I don't want to tell you too much and have you not try it. Basically rice and seasoning in a sausage casing. Petro fuel island in Hammond LA has the best.
