    My new truck (got a new '18 Cascadia in May) came with chains. I had planned to swap them out for cables, but just have never gotten around to doing it.

    That's the polite way to say I've procrastinated doing it. Lol

    I have three brand new bags of chains in my side box. They look good in there. So there they will stay.

    Does anybody know where this loose horn wire attaches to on a 2009 prostar?
    A picture would help.
    Thanks

    Is it inside the part of the steering wheel pad that you had to remove to access the area in the pic.

    Well a paltry 150,399 miles this year. Don't know what the profit sharing will amount to this year but if it is the same as last year I will have grossed 91,841.96 (70 days home time). Not too shabby.

    On home time but picked up a load to SLC this week to cover for the drivers out here on vacation and medical leave. Also doing two more runs to SLC next week so not a long continuous time off but I just can't turn down easy money.

    Happy New Years to everyone.

    @majestyk those numbers would have to be the best at poly I would think. Averaging 500+ miles every single day away from home, 3500+ miles every single week. I talked with the highest paid driver from a year or 2 ago and he made 87k not including 401k match but he didn't go home 70 days. Anyways even if you or I am messing up a number here or there that's a really good year you had congrats!

    As of 12/16/17 my total gross was $68,665.
    Went home for Christmas and wont make payroll cut-off for new year's so missed another 2600 miles to turn in for the year by a day.

    Not exactly sure the date we started getting paid .52 cpm so I just took all miles paid and multiplied by .52. So ran over 118,000 miles for the year. I try to go home every 3 weeks give or take.
    I definitely missed miles/days of driving do to breakdowns earlier in the year, waiting for truck to get serviced, waiting a day or so for my homeload, waiting a day or so because I was to high on the outbound board.

    All that being said I'm happy at poly. Im shocked at some of the guys who struggle because things just aren't that hard for me here. With having a more reliable truck I'm hopeful for a better 2018.
