    My old truck was at about 603,000 when I turned it in. Yours should be coming up for trade-in any day now. If it helps, my old truck number was in the high 297xx range. I'm about to head out to start arranging my stuff in the new truck. I'll take some pics while out there. Please excuse the mess you'll see in the pics - remember what your house looked like on the inside while you were unpacking boxes from moving in? :)

    Not to be a pest, but would everyone with Crete or Shaffer please continue to list your exact mileage for the week?



    Thanks again.

    Saw Redbeard at the KC term and got the story first hand. As well as see the new truck. Good luck Redbeard! Was good to see you again.

    Mileage last week was 2789, could have had more, but I was forced to take a 34hr reset in PA because of the usuall slow freight in that area.. Come Monday when I turn in my last trip for the payroll week, I will have 3380.

    Yeah, I wish I'd had more time to hang out. Had to run over to General Mills in KC to grab that load before midnight, come back to the terminal, and grab a few hours of sleep before detailing my old truck. Tuesday I got up at 3:30 and was still up that night when we talked. So yeah, I was a bit tired...

    I also met you while we were both doing restarts in columbus. You showed me the pic of the bridge in your phone. I would have been the younger guy around the terminal while you were there. Congrats on the new truck. I sat in one at the terminal and they are very nice!

    Okay, got the pics posted. Click my username on this post to see my profile. On the right hand side is a box called "Albums" and you'll see my album entitled "New Truck!"

    They're all "computers"...this one just runs Windows. Probably Windows CE. Apart from Solitaire and Freecell, it only has the Qualcomm functions you're used to, though with a different interface. It has a touch screen to navigate around with.
     
    The Challenger Thanks this.

    Oh, one other detail - the Qualcomm will talk to you. It's not real good at reading - for example, when reading a load assignment, the part that says "DRVR UNLD N" it will read as "Driver Unload North" and the part that says "DEL DT & TIM" it'll read as "Delaware D T and Tim".
