    at the hotel now (La Quinta)

    who ever said that 30 drivers were supposed to be here on Monday was lying. Counted up the number of FRE trucks here and it is less than 10 right now.

    saw the new trucks and the first FRE driver got his truck today

    *There 2015 KW T680's in White not black or brown
    * Cummins ISX15 450 horse motors
    * Thirteen speed or Auto Shift transmissions
    * Electric APU's
    * Built in Refrigerator
    * Two inverters factory installed (dedicated inverter for micro and it own spot to put said micro)

    So far there wasting no time in getting the drivers thru Orientation. Showed up at noon local time and checked in with the orientation mgr. right away after i had lunch She had me doing paperwork and physical (no drug test for us).

    Sadly one FRE driver was sent home already, Failed Physical another driver is waiting for a stress test.

    and you can keep your suff in your FRE truck till you have the new truck, you can even still take them outta the yard if you wanna bobtail somewhere.

    also found out that apparently the FRE trucks are not going to be sold thru Quality Trucks but Celadon is using them as trade ins to PACCAR for the T680's instead.
