    hi people, i usually don't spend much time online, but i ran across this forum by accident and had to say something.
    as a former jevic road driver, (10yrs @ j4) I hope everyone from jevic has moved on and is doing ok. the 10 yrs i spent with jevic was some of best i spent anywhere. i don't hold any grudges with any of the lower level people (managers, dispatchers, ld planners, etc.. they were some of the best i've ever worked with and i don't believe they knew what was coming any more than the rest of us. except for the top people (gorman, etc.) i have the highest respect for everyone i worked with. i miss contact with some of you and hope you find time to contact me. i had my phone and address book stolen shortly after layoff and lost all my phone numbers.
    anyway, i took summer off and spent time with kids and grandkids, took a couple of long motorcycle trips and really relaxed. went to work for KOCH in minneapolis in late august, they have treated me very well as far as work goes. still run the 48, but it's all truckload now. that took getting used to. of course they don't pay as well, i'm losing about 20% over what i used to make, but the way things are now, i'm just glad to be working at all.
    i keep an eye out for anyone i knew every time i stop somewhere, but so far haven't seen anyone i know.
    i wish all of you good luck and for you all to be safe.
    my contact info is in my bio if anyone wishes to use it. i get home about every 3 weeks, so it may take awhile to answer back. take care,
    v. rose
