Eric Rickard, Driver of the Month
Congratulations to Eric Rickard, the Dart Network’s Driver of the Month! When Eric got out of the army in 1990 and back into civilian life, he wanted a job out of the ordinary. A job that wasn’t the same old thing every day, not a job where he would be stuck behind a desk. That’s when he looked into the trucking industry and the rest is history.

He then walked in, and looked around carefully. The aroma of fresh coffee was trailing through the hallways near the driver lounge. The sounds of the morning news played gently through the TV speakers as a few drivers tuned in to the anchors on the screen reporting the happenings of the day.

Dehydration, nausea and lightheadedness. I wasn’t quite acclimated to the summer heat yet.
