What does Independence Day (4th of July) mean to you all and how do you celebrate it each year?

Independence Day means I'm a year older, my dad use to lie to me when I was really little "those fireworks are all for you". Thinking those fireworks and all those people where gathered together for my birthday was a great feeling.

My failure and learning experience

Keep in mind the level of anxiety driving to orientation in a rental car is nothing compared to what you're going to feel your first month or so solo and you happen to miss a turn in a major city trying to find a shipper/receiver. This situation happened to me in Baltimore, staying calm and trying to find a place to turn around took some real effort.

Check out the stretch on this truck...

I’ve never understood the purpose of that stretch... is it simply for looks or is there another reason?

Looks cool with the free added effect of lower mpg and a much larger turning radius.

McElroy Truck Lines

They are slowly switching to autos, every 2019 nontrainer truck was an auto that I've seen. I wouldn't count on having a choice, new drivers seem to get the 2017 trucks which are all 10 speeds, veteran drivers are getting the autos first.
