April 29, 2008-Final trip

Hello faithful reader.

Sorry i have been a bit busy over the past 6-7 weeks, and have neglected my blog.

I have finally been ok'd by our MTO, and finished off my school bus training at the beginning of April. I know
have a route, and like it a lot. Manovering around the yard is no fun, but that, thankfully is only when i NEED to go up to it.

I did my final wind tower escort run at the 1st of April, from Ft Erie to Thunder Bay. The picture here is near Barrie after an over night stay. Heavy rain here, and major snow and ice in Sault Ste Marie. Hwy 17 was closed for a while, but thats not new for that area.

I cannot say i'll miss the work, it was not to bad, as long as i could follow. It was the things i had no control over that bothered me. Weather, road closures, equipment failures. I wound up not getting home in time for 2 of my 3 horse show weekends, and i just cannot afford that, if i want to expand the business.

Figures, I just signed up for a Trip rewards card. Not sure it will be used a lot in the future.LOL

Well as i said, been busy and will be getting busy with my first out door show May 3.

I have a few things to share now, family equine adventures and weddings etc, and i';ll do that over the next few days and weeks.

Enjoy and thanks for listening
