  1. Happy belated birthday my friend. Hope it was the best one yet.

    1. I apologize Steve, I was under the impression that yesterday was your birthday. Hope today is a great one. Cheers

  2. really liking the Sunday video….

  3. Hope you can enjoy and celebrate your Special Day – Happy Birthday Steve!

  4. Thanks for the update! Curious as to the factors you consider when deciding to accept/not accept a trip. Thanks for sharing your travels and hope to see you in the PNW soon. Stay safe and healthy.

    1. It is a case by case basis. Depends on the customer and my experience with them, mileage, time, location. In the case of this morning, a 9 mile trip to a destination that has taken 12+ hours to unload in our past combined with their Google ratings from other truckers of 1.4 stars and the most common complaints dealt with painfully long unloading. Since we get paid by the mile, 9 miles and the very long wait times, nope, not worth it in my book. I’d rather sit and wait for another trip.

      1. I surely don’t blame you for not taking that 9 miler but we all know SOMEONE has to do it. How will they determine the unlucky driver who will have to do this?! I assume your seniority helps y’all here?
        Happy birthday!

      2. I replied to your email about this and explained why this one was different. Thanks for trying to put me in a bad light….

      3. And yes, many many times I have done trips that helped out dispatch with no benefit to me…

      4. Thanks for the reply and insight. Much appreciated. And Happy B-Day! Hope you are enjoying the AZ heat. At least, it’s a dry heat! πŸ™‚

      5. Why must you bad mouth America all the time. We don’t hate Canada. We love your beer, bacon, fishing, mountains and people. Why would any driver take a job to a known deadbeat? You say Canadians would take it but Steve won’t because he’s American. I for one resent your attitude.

        1. Jim Janet Martin But that hostage crisis in 79 to 81 or there abouts let us not forget the role Canicdian forces played in duping the Iranians to help our hostages escape!!! My thanks to all you wonderful and good Canadians!!! Steve dont need to apologize either for his freedom of choice when he can God Bless USA and Canada!!!

      6. Leave off the junk about “Canadian attitudes” vs “American attitudes” next time. If your arrogance and tossing that nonsense into your post is reflective of “Canadian attitudes”, I want nothing to do with them. If you can’t leave ridiculous nonsense like that off your posts, then don’t bother posting. It simply has no place in this, and you should be ashamed for posting it.

        1. Ken well said!!! BRT is dedicated to family friendly chats.BRT is Steves labor of love and we should try to keep proper chats and i include my self also!!! So lets all strive to maintain BRT to give Steve his well earned wonderful BRT!! Lets enyou and just make it the BEST!!

      7. My personal opinion? If a company would like a good and dependable trucking company to haul their freight, I think they had better do something about their poor management in unloading trucks. Good business management in the front office could easily make some changes in shipping and turn their company around from a one-star to a five-star rating.

      8. Ignore this guy. Go to his face book page and you will see he is a far left America hater.

      9. Gord, you make the most judgmental, inappropriate comments to Steve. If I were a moderator, you would be banned.

        1. Your spot on there Mark

  5. TJElevatorFan you have a wonderful smile! Love it.

    “I Saw The Light”

    I wandered so aimless life filled with sin
    I wouldn’t let my dear saviour in
    Then Jesus came like a stranger in the night
    Praise the Lord I saw the light.

    I saw the light I saw the light
    No more darkness no more night
    Now I’m so happy no sorrow in sight
    Praise the Lord I saw the light.

    Just like a blind man I wandered along
    Worries and fears I claimed for my own
    Then like the blind man that God gave back his sight
    Praise the Lord I saw the light.

    I saw the light I saw the light
    No more darkness no more night
    Now I’m so happy no sorrow in sight
    Praise the Lord I saw the light.

    I was a fool to wander and a-stray
    Straight is the gate and narrow the way
    Now I have traded the wrong for the right
    Praise the Lord I saw the light.

    I saw the light I saw the light
    No more darkness no more night
    Now I’m so happy no sorrow in sight
    Praise the Lord I saw the light.

  26. Happy belated Birthday.

    Glad to be able to travel American roads with you. I always wanted to come to America and drive American roads, perhaps an answer to prayer that I found you and am able to do so vicariously through you.

  27. Steve a belated Happy Birthday To You. Sorry did not wish you Happy Birthday in previous chats but got all wrapped up in responding to Archie Bunkers relation that just forgot===Happy Birthday!!!

  28. Steve would not turn down a trip unless there is a good reason…..and traveling only 9 miles to a location with a reputation for bad service to truckers is a perfectly good reason, especially if the driver is not getting paid for the time spent waiting while the warehouse lollygags and takes its sweet old time loading or unloading.

  29. I forgot to tell ya I made you a birthday cookie. But then, I forgot & ate it.
    50xs I wrote: bad cat, I am a bad cat. Signed “bad cat”
    I forgot to use paper, I wrote it on the kitchen door with a crayon. oops.
    Your birthday has been a trial for me. Are you having one again next year? I will rest up for it.

    1. LOL Thanks! I needed a good laugh this morning. πŸ™‚

      1. I love it when I hit the laughter target!

  30. TK, I always love your post, keep up the good work πŸ™‚
