    I think it's 4 months, and then you may go out with a trainer for a couple weeks.

    The average for crete is around 130k thats around 64$ an year,they lower the miles to 119k an year,for the 1cent raise,cause many drivers couldnt hit more.I drove around 130k for almost 8 years there,which is not bad.This year i drove 175k and i made again around 64$ lol.

    SADLY & UNFORTUNATELY, there are a lot of people working night and day, every day, who are earning, at best, minimum wage to barely survivable wages, totaling LESS than $30,000 a year, especially if they have families to take care of.

    God bless every American and their families! God bless the U.S.A.!

    The trucking industry is spearheading that way of life unfortunately.

    Hey tucker!
    I'm still lurking around. I sold the camper and the 3/4 ton P/U and have a Cherokee. It's a much more enjoyable vehicle to drive vs. the pick up. I can actually park this one like a normal human. I still have the Saturn Sky but it's afflicted with a very common ailment that plagues the 2.0T engine. The water pump is going out. It's driven off the timing chain and is in a most inaccessible location. The mechanic wants $1200 to replace it. So I am saving my "chedda" Plus it's already past drop-top weather here in Dallas.

    I hope all is well with you!
     
    tucker Thanks this.

    So about Lincoln firing on all cylinders, that seems to have ended.
