This truck here, I bought it in December of 1997. I’ve had her for over 21 years. She’s got roughly 2.5 million miles on her with only one major overhaul. It’s a good truck. They’re built to last if you take care of them. I love this job. There’s nothing like it. You have freedom for one thing. You keep to yourself. Everything’s scheduled. You don’t have to sit around like regular freight. The pay is better. It’s good.
Working for this company especially. You get to your destination, unload, pre-plan your next load, and go back to the yard, pick up another load. Every load is different, every day is different. Like today, I’ve got a run headed to Nevada. Las Vegas! I just need to make sure I take enough coins with me for the slots. It’s good, I enjoy it.
