Road Weary

    I started a new job at the beginning of January, as a tech, for a contractor that preforms installs for DirecTV and AT&T. As a tech, I drive to the job site and can see multiple jobs a day with sometimes an hour drive between jobs.

     My favorite part of this new job, is the drive itself. I've always loved driving, since I was a boy and my dad would take me for drives and occasionally let me drive the family Cherokee. I drove from Utah back to Minnesota in the pick up my father had handed down to me. That was about the time I developed what I've been calling "Road Trance" and  began looking for any excuse I could to just hit the road, any reason at all and there I went. Sometimes bordering on immaturity and irresponsibility.

     When I drive now, be it the work truck, or my truck, I get sucked into the road and I see nothing else, no emotion, no problems, there's nothing but the road and myself. Cars, animals, buildings, people, it all appears grey to me. There is someone that I occasionally call at the end of a work day. An old Friend from Utah, who's easy to talk to for hours, that seems to be one of few that can pull me out of this trance. I get home, hang up the phone, lie down, and close my eyes, and my last thoughts before drifting off, are of getting up and doing it again the next day.


It felt good to post again, forgive me for I have been very busy with work, I hope you guys enjoyed the read!
Good Luck and Stay Safe Out There!


  1. I love that last photo!! So peaceful and relaxing to just look at it. I've always enjoyed driving as well.. after the two oldest come to an agreement on who gets the front seat this go around and the youngest is strapped in and content eating her Cheerios, I find it about the only way to escape my stress. The kids nap and I can enjoy the scenery and music. It really gets me thinking about what I want to do in my future. That's great you are enjoying your new job!! Thanks for writting again please keep it up when you get the chances to! Love, your aunt Billy jo

  2. Oh,Thank you for your comment! Driving has become much like my time in the woods, where there's not much to think about besides the woods or the road. Love you too Billy Jo! thank you so much for reading! I'll try to post more!
