#3

Since I've not updated this week let me just give a quick run down.
Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday were our orientation days. Wednesday we road tested and were assigned our trucks. I must admit that I was not impressed with the truck we got as a team, but oh well.
We drove about 50 miles south to pick up our first dispatch. Campti, LA to Louisville, KY. Not a bad first run for a team. Then we dead headed from there to Indianapolis to pick up a FedEx load going to Laredo, TX. From there we got an H.E.B. load going back to Coushatta, LA near our home terminal in Sibley, LA.
Once in Sibley we had to put the truck in the shop for the day. Seems the trip was too much for the old gal. Starter went out, and power steering pump blew a hose. While in the shop we received a phone call offering us a couple of solo positions. We took the offer. I kept our old truck and Paul ended up in an 07 Columbia.
Today is Tuesday and my first day as a solo driver for Tango. Kinda got off to a slow start today but will end up good for the week. I now have a load taking me from Louisiana to northern Indiana.
Ok, that's all for now. If you are interested in becoming a company driver or owner/operator for Tango Transport call 1-866-898-4580 Ext 6694 and tell them Brady sent you.
God bless you in all you do!
