Here Comes Summer! Don’t Blink


Can you believe it is July already? Summer is my favorite season. While I hope you are enjoying it, we have work to do!

#BlastFromThePast – In 2014 I met Lee Greenwood at #ABANashville. In 2024 ABA will be back in Nashville. I wonder who I will meet.

Happy 4th of July!

Can’t believe we’ve come this far and
It feels just like getting started
Somehow we’re still running

No, you did not miss my June newsletter. It did not get created.


Many of you learned from the past, didn’t wait until August, and booked your fall transportation. We have many sold-out weekends through Thanksgiving.

Do you know if you need fall transportation? Sundays, Mondays, and Wednesdays will be the easiest. Tuesdays and Thursdays are filling. The time to book was yesterday. LOL. Seriously, though. Give me a call and let’s see what we can do!

OPEC could derail fuel price declines

Diesel Prices Rise for First Time in Two Months

It continues to be a yo-yo. If you are asking for a quote more than 3 months out, I am including the fuel surcharge as a line item for your budget planning purposes. If, at the time of invoicing, fuel has not reached $5.50/gallon, I remove the surcharge. I am optimistically cautious. Below is the best link for up-to-date fuel information.
