    You should start a Ramsey's List. You could even make him talk with modern technology.

    There are segments of the trucking industry where you could utilize your contacts, experience and knowledge to provide a service without really being "in trucking".

    Just some examples: Emergency roadside service, HazMat training, Freight bill factoring, CDL training.

    It's more fun to completely re invent yourself in a non trucking enterprise where you deal with regular people.
    I don't miss trucking at all.
    Except I do dream I'm driving from time to time
    Or I wake up at 2 am and think I overslept
    My favorite show is Ice road truckers
    and I drive a Toyota Tacoma with a manual transmission
    that's about it
    oh yeah
    I also sell frozen dog food
    so about every 6 weeks I drive about 150 miles to pick up dog food
    30 cases...high and tight

    My hometown..and Mesa State is now Colorado Mesa University..CMU..and they all call it *** You. Nice ring to it don't you think? This is my sarcasm speaking of course. But the sandwich shop down at the college is good but a bit pricey.

    I like mine thick, crispy outside soft gooey inside. Many people like it thin and crispy all the way through but I think that takes the flavor out of it. And it is odd how syrup goes so well with it.

    You never know GT, this couple used to be my neighbor when I lived in Springfield MO. Rented a home from them across the road from their beautiful mansion, lol. They were good down to earth folks who had the same dream. They are very rich now.

    If I could start a business, I would start an old-fashioned type general store. It would have wood floors and rocking chairs on the front porch. Everything would have an "aged" look. The store would have a variety of locally made products. Everything would be straight from local farms and crafters. Everything from fresh honey and fresh milk to homemade soap and hand stitched quilts. There would be fresh coffee and sweet tea always made and free for those who wanted to sit on the front porch and chew the fat, lol.

    I want to take a welding class soon. I like to tinker and make gadgets to make life easier and making things and selling them at flea markets sounds like it could be a good retirement gig.
