Space Filler – Retired?  Have a CDL?   School systems everywhere are looking for sub and activity drivers.  Retirement communities need drivers too.  The first requires a school bus endorsement; the second, a passenger endorsement.  If you don't have a CDL, half the school systems around here will train you.  If you drive a bus somewhere, admissions and  meals are almost always free or paid-for.  I've been doing these gigs for years, I'm having fun, and I get paid for doing it.

Judy says I have a “putz” job.

That's my good luck.

To the point: there's almost certainly an agency or organization in your community that needs you and your CDL, not everyday, not likely on a regular basis, just whenever you happen to be available.  You'll be appreciated, and you'll probably have a good time.

I  don't know why more people aren't doing this.


Trip Sheet

20 July –  State Chapter Meeting, at an antique car collection/museum near Salina.  I don't have a name for it, or an address, but JW has directions: I-135 north past Lindsborg to the Smolan/Mentor exit.  Go east a mile, maybe a mile and a half, following the “ATHS” signs that JW will have planted.  You'll know them when you see them.  Eat at noon, meeting follows.  JW says there are 95 exhibits, mostly cars.  This is a new destination for us, in an area that's a bit out of our normal range, so consider driving your truck.  We could use the exposure. 

20-21 September – Wilkins Oklahoma Truck Supply Truck Show, Tonkawa.

5 October – Hot & Cold Truck Show, Pratt.

25-26 October – Fall Swap Meet, State fairgrounds, Hutch.,,and on Facebook at ATHS Wheat State Chapter
