    I remember always driving by their terminal up in Maryland on I-81. It looked like a quite an impressive operation.

    I've worked with people who told me M.S. was a great place to work and the only reason they left was because of Swift.

    I wish there were companies like M.S. left out there!

    I worked there between 97 and 99 and ran around in #15177.
    They gave me a nice truck and nice pay for a rookie.
    I paid off my MSC schooling early. So I made more after that.
    I hardly ever sat in any of the yards. When I needed maintenance done, they were right on top of it. I was transfered to Wilkes-barre terminal and worked with John. My trainer was Dan Williams from Binghamton. And who could forget Big Ed at the academy. Anyone remember these cats.
    God those were the days. I still remember when we all would see who was going in the same direction and run together and just B.S. for hours. I even remember the days at M.S. when even the O/O would slow down with us slow riders and give us rookies an insight on being an O/O, not much of that going on now a days.

    #### you Mike for selling out.

    Yes, they sold out to Swift. If your lucky enough you will see some M.S. Carriers trailers still going down the road with Swift pulling them.
