    We have been doing that for over a year now, but I will give Dave credit for it. Mid 2016 even our house will be paid off...as we start rolling out of debt starting in July this year it will be going to a 401 etc...!

    My 23yr old daughter and her husband will be debt free this September. Until they buy a house, that is.

    Change is always hard. Once she sees how happy and relaxed you are, when at home, she will be tickled silly.

    I have a question is Walmart all that'd it's cracked up to be, or is it turning into just another trucking company?

    Driving for Walmart is very different from any other trucking company that I have ever driven for. Walmart holds its drivers to a very high standard and they treat you with respect.

    I left LTL after 18 years and came to Walmart Trans. No regrets. They keep you busy, no setting around waiting for a load for hours on end, they send you your next assignment before your done on your current one. If you start out on the extra board it will be 5 days out and 2 days and 3 nights at home. The week goes by quick.Health insurance varies by region
