Yesterday was the day I was assigned my first truck two years ago.

Today I upgraded to a 2021 Freighliner. It was new a couple months ago when my friend got it, he drove it 24,000 miles then took a local job. So not quite new but close enough.

Congratulations! How the heck are you going to live up to your screen name when you're driving a nice, new truck like that? Maybe "not-quite-as Grumpy Old Man" will suit you better.

Easy. I’m pretty sure they replaced the engine with one from a 69 VW Beetle! Holy cow it is underpowered.

Thanks Rob. I have no intention of going anywhere, they treat us well.
