So my truck is repaired and I’m on the plane back to Buffalo after dropping off the second abandoned truck.

First time in a Volvo and first time on paper logs and no Qualcomm.

...AND .... FIRST TIME with no COFFEE ?!?!? They sure threw a LOT at ya, haha! Testing your sense & sensibility?!?

Just kidding, man. Geesh... fly safe, and drive safer! What a tale to tell, for futures, I'd bet!

Qualcomm:

Omnitracs (a.k.a. Qualcomm) is a satellite-based messaging system with built-in GPS capabilities built by Qualcomm. It has a small computer screen and keyboard and is tied into the truck’s computer. It allows trucking companies to track where the driver is at, monitor the truck, and send and receive messages with the driver – similar to email.

And flight has been delayed 4 times. As was last weeks. The whole ordeal has been FUBARed through no fault of mine or Wolding. Just Murphy’s Law.

Fuel Tank Noise. Damaged fuel pump might make a loud, whining sound that you'll hear from your gas tank. it's annoying.

On a semi, Class 8 tractor?

Back on the road again. NOX sensor. Why does it take 2 days to fix this? I think the FRIGHLINER repair shops milk the repairs for everything they can get, Do not get me started on this .

Nox sensors have been hard to get the past 6 months or so. 2 days was a pretty quick turn around for a dealer.

My truck was repaired while I ran the first truck out to WI. Took an Uber from the airport to my truck, took it home and parked it. Uber to the second truck, took it to WI, then flew home last night.

Delay after delay both flights. Got home 3:30 this morning, after 23 hours awake.

Back out on the road tomorrow.

Ok, thanks. I feel better knowing that. But I’m hoping for no more breakdowns.
