Don Mills. I worked with him in the early 90's and he taught me the importance of always striving to do the best job I can. I haven't talked to him in a few years. He's living in Phoenix somewhere. Maybe I'll look him up someday and see what he's up to. May be retired by now.
I fell into this job with my Navy training. I had no idea it was so much fun. My dad wanted me to be a mechanical engineer. Well, I'm glad I have the education, but I'd much rather be doing this. I'll pass on the desk jockey jobs.

I would stop & clinb in traiuler to cool off.I said i`m quitting this truck driving job & go to refer. school to find put how they keep theses trailers cold.
