    I’m in the club now. Only took 26 hrs to break down. I killed it. Started acting crazy, losing power and speed, shifting from 12 down turning 2100 RPMs even though it’s governed at 1800. Coasted off the ramp. Shut it down. Dash says clutch overheated, creeper mode disabled. I’m sure it did, the way it kept shifting itself. Sat 20 minutes, Start it up, intermittent power loss. Only creeps a very small amount. Waiting on a Tow Truck. I’m glad I’m on the clock. Looks like some extra OT for today. It’s good to be in the club. Lol.

    Oh buddy - least you get to chat with the tow truck driver on the way back, and his heater hopefully works.

    Turdcadia life...

    Don’t the official Turdcadia driver’s uniform, which would be dirty sweat pants, shower shoes with socks, and an equally dirty under shirt backed up by the smell of not having a shower for 3 weeks.

    Snapchat-627725294.jpeg Y’all can speak for yourselves, lol! At almost 500k miles and at least half of it spent in western ND, she’s done well so far. And I prefer cut of Jean shorts, cut off button up shirt, and boots.
