I like what you're saying, driver-formerly-known-as-Rainy. Thank you.

And Errol, I'm sorry what I said wasn't exactly clear. I meant the load is going to be repowered at the terminal. That's as far as I'm taking it.

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.

Well that is a blessing and a curse I guess. You get used to a truck and they sell it lol, however it is also exciting getting something new (or new to you) kind of like a new toy. Anyway be sure and follow up and let us know what you end up in.

Finally got my new truck. A teal 2020 freightliner with 24,000 miles on it. Transferring all my stuff from one sweltering hot truck to another had me soaked with sweat. That was no fun!

Still at the terminal? Want to see your new truck!

After getting this truck I'm guzzling the company kool aid.

Sorry, Spaceman. I picked up a loaded trailer and was on the road around 16:30. Delivery was a drop/hook in Joplin. Finished there and in line for a wash out right now. Oooh! Next load just came through!
