Ha! Of course you're there. That's because I'm in Pittston this wknd, sitting on a load till monday. I'll roll out midday sunday.

The stars just won't align quite right for us to meet, it seems.

Haha well meet up. I've already run into Kanelin a few times and Robby almost ran me off the road in KY on I65. Hahahah

I'm here. My truck is in the shop getting the APU fixed.

APU:

Auxiliary Power Unit

On tractor trailers, and APU is a small diesel engine that powers a heat and air conditioning unit while charging the truck's main batteries at the same time. This allows the driver to remain comfortable in the cab and have access to electric power without running the main truck engine.

Having an APU helps save money in fuel costs and saves wear and tear on the main engine, though they tend to be expensive to install and maintain. Therefore only a very small percentage of the trucks on the road today come equipped with an APU.

I'm in Pittston as well. Truck decided to smoke every time I went uphill... a lot! Then, I had to stop on the shoulder of I70 and do a parked regen. Plus, my apu is being finicky. Wish they would sell MY truck.

OmG this must be killing Matt...my other friend on his fleet is in the shop too. I got to Sprimo and there's a message on my truck notes that say "turn in truck". I asked dispatch and no one knows if I'm supposed to turn it in or not. Campus doesn't have a pet room for me. So I'm gonna pack and ask matt in the morning what I should do. He ll tell me to run until the truck dies I'm sure. Lol

And just like that, I miss another TT Primate. I rolled out yesterday at around 1330, and am now sitting in my 90's parking lot here in Cleveland. Figured the wife & I will Uber over to the lake and see what's hapnin today :)

Plus I'll have a fresh 70 come mon morning and be dispatched before I even start my clock.
