In 2006 after a few very bad relationships, I met my “Knight in the Shining Semi.” His name is Mike Dicke. After being together for awhile, Mike decided to take a break from driving and we went into business together with five trucks. Mike took care of all of the repair work, and I handled the paperwork. After low freight rates, high workers comp rates and other difficulties beyond our control, Mike decided to go back on the road and we got out of the company. It was quiet a transition for us both. After good times and bad we are still staying strong. I’m very proud of Mike. He is a professional in every way, and I know what an important role all truck drivers have in keeping us supplied with food, clothes, etc. I luv my trucker and I’m in it for the long haul.
