    Even if he was ya still gotta clutch a lot in traffic jams an stop an go city traffic. That's what keeps us from working where they only have manuals. Don't think the wife's sciatica could take it.

    True. Last time I drove a manual was in 2017. Don't really miss it, but I am rethinking that decision. I have a 2023 cascadia with all the mega company safety systems and it is miserable to drive.

    Yea i can envision a day when a manual won't even be an option anymore. 2023 or 2024 will be the last year they produce 389's as it is. Thx for the info. I know dynamic wanted us to apply at one time. Got a couple other options we're currently entertaining. Gonna try to make a move in January.

    The only time , outside of a yard, I hit the clutch was to get going, or come to a stop hitting the brake and the clutch. The trouble was backing into a door in a tight yard, and there were a lot of them, or as was mentioned, traffic.
     
    CorsairFanboy and Speed_Drums Thank this.

    Glad to see you’re doing well there. Only question I have….

    Is Charly still dispatching there? When I was there I was always going from Edwardsville to Cheyenne, back to Sioux City and onto SE Michigan. She was good at her job.

    Ron was good to me when I had some medical issues, Tony was ok for the most part and your right about the shop being top notch.
