    It seems that all the folks that drew me to this forum in the first place have moved on. It's sad when I feel like I'm one of the old timers now.

    Waving HI... I read, but we also have moved on, so any info we would relate would be as it 'use to be'... Man, I feel like an old fart! Way back when I was first starting we use to have to get out front of the truck and turn the crank to start it! You young whippersnappers have it easy just turning a key!!

    Turning a key's too hard, we need remote starters.

    On our first run... It was a solo load, so sitting for a while before delivery... So far so good though :)

    Thats nice to hear. I'm trying my best to stick with it. Swiftral is killing me though. They made me sit 2 days because i refused to do this stupid simulator training they wanted me to do. I told em they could do a road test with me but it would be a cold day down below before i do simulator crap. They lifted the safety hold like nothing happened. Ugh my patience is running out.

    There is a rumor that I have heard, from more than one current Central employee, that a new company is being formed by prior Central employees... I also heard they are looking for drivers that have experience and no points ;)

    The only downside is I'm not sure of the new name...
     
    DragonHalo99 Thanks this.

    This has happened before: You know how when you leave the WVC terminal, you go right past Pride Tansport? That was started by one of the England brothers.

    Also, Kelle Simon started Kelle's Tucking Service after his dad sold us to Central Refrigerated. You'll notice that the Kelle trucks have an even cooler skunk, wearing racing glasses.

    It was so much fun back then. CR England, Central Refrigerated, Kelle Simon and Pride Transportation would all be sitting in the yard on channel 5, trash talking each other and throwing jokes and insults.

    Then, the next morning you would see an England truck helping a Central truck, and a Pride truck helping a Kelle truck.

    Good times...
