It seems like every two and a half years, we make a change in Craig's truck driving experience.  He started out driving OTR in the US and Canada delivering boats from coast to coast and border to border.  Then, after sustaining the back injury in July of 2007, and us both desiring to stay closer to family, he switched to the refrigerated division  in May of 2008 and drove basically the I5 corridor.  Well, it's two and a half years later and it's again time to change things up a bit.

The little side business I am involved in with my BFF Cori, has gotten off to a better start than we ever imagined.  We both want to devote more time to it with two spaces in the consignment store now, and also trying our hand with a few sales at the Cottage on her property.  Craig has over the past six months or so, entertained the idea of going team.  It would change things up a bit on the driving side, plus allow him to come home every month instead of every two months.  As he told me, he would much prefer to go team, than to do any more training.

So, starting Saturday, Craig will team up with his previous trainee Roy, (his son in law he was teaming with moved back east and left him without a driving partner), and I will divide my time between home and Walla Walla, WA as Cori and I embark on making the love we have in re purposing furniture and finding vintage items, into more of a full time business.  Both Craig and I are excited about the changes that are happening for us in the upcoming year.

Where does that leave this blog?  I'm not sure if my entries are quite as good when Craig is just relaying to me what assignments he has, versus my actually being in the truck and experiencing it myself.  I guess we'll just have to see how it goes and if the readership maintains during this departure from what we have been able to enjoy together.  I'll be posting as well, about the progress Cori and I make with our business, and hopefully, we'll find a happy medium for everyone to enjoy.  If not, I'd like the thank the ones who may lose interest in this blog that have accompanied us over the past 5 years, as Craig and I have had an adventure of a lifetime together.  We always enjoyed the company....... Thanks!

Congratulations on your new adventures. Change is good sometimes. I will still follow your blog no matter what. I loved the items you made-over in the few blogs you posted. I will miss the beautiful pics you took while on the road with Craig.

congrats on the decisions you've made. I'm a bit bummed that this blog won't be about trucking so much. But, what can you do?

I'm not one to follow a restoration blog, but I'll follow you guys because I'm invested now. Good luck on the furniture venture, I'm sure you'll do great.
