    Haha I can’t eat that much turkey. It gets celebrated twice for me :/ Which can be a pain in the butt logistically. 2 different months, and 2400 miles.

    Won’t say much more than that about it. Other than, I don’t like formal dinner settings where everyone is dressed to the 9’s

    You can get a W900...save your nickles.

    They are premium $ to buy, but what I noticed about them, compared to a similar yr, mi and condition Volvo, FL or Intl, they always are worth more when you sell...so, it's an investment. Not a very good one, but, it does pay you back one day.

    If you like the look, other similar models are FL XL, Intl 9900 or Western Star. But, I noticed that those tend to go for higher prices too. Granted, not a KW.

    I like the T800's too. Pretty solid truck, a bit more aerodynamic but still a classic kind of look.

    The W900 is a truck you can drive all day behind the wheel and not feel fatigued. They are delightful. And, you look good, like a real pro when you show up.

    But, today, I look at my truck as a means for making money, not show. And, I just cant do the ELD thing...what you described. I'd pull what's left of my hair out being so close to home and getting my 34 hrs done. They are just so freaking stupid. Maddening what the govt has done to truckers.

    This past week was the first time I've taken off that did not include a surgery in the three and a half years I've worked for this company beyond a reset
