We don't see too many of those Coronados on the road. I do like the way they look.

Robert, did you change jobs again? I thought you were with Anderson Trucking Service. Is ELS part of that company?

Had to switch. The wife and I had a few things going on with our house and in the transition of getting a new place, had to be with an employer with a pet policy. ATS doesn't allow pets for company drivers and considering we've had the girls for over 8 years,,,,, well, you can see what happened. On the upside, ATS contacts me once a week wanting me back but I'm making quite a bit more money over here and having more fun too, so it wasn't a bad switch.

Okay, I assume you are leasing a truck? I actually don't know anything about ELS, but it seems to be a leasing operation. Just curious, are your wife and dogs riding along? I recently had my wife and dog along with me. We had a great time together. I wish you the best, I know you understand about how to make things work.

Thanks! I really do love this truck.

I saw one of your Knight SAPA trucks out in the middle of South Dakota last week, but it wasn't you. Let me know next time you're in Sioux City!

That goes for anyone from here, actually. I go past the Sioux City truck stops every week day on the way to and from work, and I'm home every weekend and it's not a far trip. Post something and I'll probably see it. I check in here a couple times a day.

I'm doing their lease but they also have company drivers, it's about 50/50 driver wise. Company drivers can make really good money, so can lease but I won't drift into that discussion. My long term goal is to wind up with a super sleeper in the next couple years. Yep, we're all kickin down the road and having a blast. The dogs have the most fun I think with the exposure to all the scenery and smells lol.

Yep, I often wonder how a dog's sense of smell gives meaning and purpose to his life. Every dog I have had through the years seems to be totally animated by their sense of smell. It seems to be their driving force in life.

Mines in my profile picture. Peterbilt 379 Flat nose with Cummins. Love the truck but extremely difficult to drive locally getting into these tiny gas stations.

There is a SAPA plant in Yankton, and we run some trucks out of that plant. We also have a good many customers up in South Dakota. I was up there just a few weeks ago delivering to De Smet, and then on to Farmington, MN. I'll keep that in mind when I next go through Sioux City.

You'd probably be able to drive it better if your feet could reach the pedals! rofl-3.gif
