...that today I got passed by first, a Swiftie, and then, a SCHOOL BUS! The school bus did appear to be empty, and I'm at 79,700, full of liquid fun stuff, but it was disheartening nonetheless.

Try being restricted to 55 mph because of CA bs speed limit. I get passed by damn Prius's!

Man, am I glad to see you posting something Pete! I have been wondering about you. It sounds like you are already a solo driver and in your very own truck - Congratulations!

Hey OS, does his profile picture remind you of your childhood days?

Thanks very much OS, I appreciate that! As you know, it's been a long time coming, but I finally made it! You've played a large role in my journey, and for that a thousand thanks. The words of wisdom and advice you've imparted in your blog and on TT's forum are priceless. You really ought to consider writing that book and start getting paid for your efforts!

That's nothing, try being a Swift driver being passed by pretty much all of the other Swift driver's. We're supposed to have 60 at the pedal and 62 on cruise. I only get 58 and 60. I think I have the slowest Swift truck in the fleet. The only way I pass anybody is in traffic or going up a steep hill. LOL!

I'm supposed to get 63 on cruise, but the best I can do is 62, after tapping the magical buttons like a spaz on crack. I'm definitely feeling your pain, JJ.

You know you are going slow when a Prime, Inc. truck passes you and flips you the bird for holding up progress.
