    2016 was a really good year, except for maintenance, that killed us. This year summer & fall was pretty slow and didn't pick up until after Thanksgiving. Stayed strong up to Christmas.

    Tomorrow will be the first trip of '18, hoping it stays strong.
    Diesel Dave, Ribeye and whoopNride Thank this.

    Good job, you still got a great $/mi gig, beats most of us. And always better to keep paid-off equipment, irregardless of maintenance. My big regret. I switched to a '15 cascadia 3 yrs ago, payments are like $33k/yr basically, only 3 yrs to go!? but it does get better mpg than my other old trucks. Makes me sick thinking about the fixed cost, though rates are coming up last 3 months. Only started equipment upgrade crap yrs ago because of CA emissions, but since last yr '16 i don't go to CA, reefer engine is not CARB certified anymore, don't want to risk tickets. Still run long haul back to midwest and e. coast, then back to AZ, tired of it especially with the current weather.
    Bakerman Thanks this.
