Home Away from Home ─ Van Operator Life

October 14, 2011

My van is like an RV, too. It has a bathroom, shower, sink, full size frig, a double bed that folds up like a murphy bed with a breakfast nook under it, and a microwave/convection oven. It’s nice having your own shower if you’ve ever had to stop at a place with 20 showers for 100 drivers and they aren’t cleaned very often.

It’s a little harder to find places to stop than years before, but if you plan your routes well, it works out. I don’t park in unsecure areas. I make sure I know where I’m going and where I’m going to park.

My wife, Diana, has driven with me off and on over the years. She now works in the office at Barrett, but when she rode with me, she’d make a lot of meals and we’d eat better than when I was on the road by myself. I’m a big boy and have to stay active and avoid bad munching.

I like Sirius/XM Satellite radio, too. It’s nice because you can plug in a station you like and listen to it for the next week or so. It doesn’t fade.
