wtf-2.gif Really? Some things cannot be unseen. Won't be back on this one for awhile.

I know it's not all fancy and chrome-covered and doesn't have the cool looking vertical exhaust but (to me) this is an incredibly beautiful rig! I love the shape of Freightliners and this color is gorgeous. *IN LOVE*

Brian, thanks for the photos!

That's one cool loaner truck while yours is getting maintenance. I'd tell my dispatcher , "Keep me as far away from the terminal as possible - they may try to put me back in my original truck."

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

Dispatcher:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Haha i should of clarified by loaner i meant just one of the few rigs the owner keeps for himself but we thought mine may of had a bad power steering pump so I took his, mine when straight back to the shop. I jokingly said I'll have to keep it, he said yeah right. Buy for exactly what i paid for it years ago and its all yours. rofl-3.gif

I rolled in here about 1030 this morning. I start a five stop load here in Altamont tomorrow morning, so I'm taking a lengthy rest/break here today. I'm just chilling and waiting for the sun to come up in the morning.

Sorry we missed each other Big Scott - it would have been great to meet ya!
