Six Days On The Road

(Tuesday 24 October 2017) by Rick Clot
OK, in my last post I mentioned that I had a part time job that was quickly turning into a full time job. Well here's some stats to bear that out. I run a little airport shuttle business out of my house and during the first 5 months of this year I scheduled 140 runs to and/or from the airport. During the last 5 months I've scheduled 291 runs. The business has doubled. I've recruited three different guys that help me out on a part time basis but I'm still carrying the bulk of the load. Busy? NAAAAAHHH! I take my wife out to dinner whenever I can find a few free hours that I'm not on the road. The consequences...1) 141,000 miles on a car that's not even five years old, 2) oil changes every two months, 3) new tires every year and a half and 4) I really have to work hard for some personal time. But I'm estimating that I've made around $20,000 just in the first ten months of this year. I can live with that. Eddie Rabbit sang "Driving My Life Away". That's my theme song.

Until Next Time,
Driving my life away,
Rick
