On the road again

And just like that, we’re back in Wisconsin. Our adventure in Colorado came to an abrupt end, with equal measures of regret and relief. Without getting into too many details, I will say this: I never want to work with tourists again. Rich, entitled, whiny tourists. They are the worst. Oh, and mask mandates. I will never work where I have to be the mask police again.

Having said that, Colorado was wonderful. Being able to look out our window and see snow covered mountains has been so uplifting. I’ve snowboarded more in the last two months that I have in the last twelve years. We met so many great co-workers, many of whom shared our passion for the outdoors. We’ll miss it.

Luckily, we’ve kept our options open over the last year, and our former trucking company welcomed us back with open arms. We are finishing up our orientation now, and have already been assigned our truck (another Volvo, YES!). We signed a lease on an apartment near Appleton, and should be moving in at the beginning of February.

So, we’re back to “normal” life, for now. As normal as driving a big rig all over the country can be, anyway. We’re so grateful for the opportunity to traipse around the country for the past seven months. We’ve seen and experienced so much, from California, to Oregon, and eventually to Colorado. We encourage everyone to chase your own adventure, your own passions. You only have a short time on this planet, and you owe it to yourself to live it to the fullest. Stay tuned for what’s next…

  1. Hey Tim I have been following you guys and all of your adventures.since you left PDQ. All of us miss you very much! Funny thing, February of 2020 I bought a freightliner from Midwest to pull my fifth wheel AKA possibly our retirement home in a couple years. It would be great to catch up with you after you get back. If you ever get time let me know I will run down to Appleton to meet you guys. Safe travels and hope to see you someday. Rick Schutte
