I've made several posts about the truck troubles I've been having lately. I was just informed that the company is putting me in a different truck on Tuesday. No details yet on where I'm going to pick it up, but I'm as excited as a kid on Christmas eve.

I only have one regret. My old truck used to belong to a Million Miler and it still had his decal on the side. His name was Calvin, and I'm an old guy, so everyone who saw the decal just assumed I was Calvin. That got me some very undeserved respect but also some amusing experiences.

I picked up a relay trailer at one of our OC locations. Did my pretrip/TIV and I have a flat trailer tire. The trailer has an auto air system, so I fire up the tractor and the flat tire inflates, but I think I should get it looked at by maintenance. I pull into the express bay and the mechanic asks me what the problem is. I say it's a flat trailer tire. Then he asked me another question that I didn't know the answer to. I said: "I don't know, this is my first experience with a flat tire". He looks at me and says: "You mean you've driven over a million miles and never had a flat before?" I said: "I guess I'm just lucky".
