    Yea most days at this job I'm looking at are just 8 hours a day with some overtime sometimes, not like mandatory like in trucking. still need a class A license and I'll still drive, but it's all like highway maintenance

    Had to mark my calendar today. I saw two FxF trucks in tandem doing the actual speed limit (25 MPH) down Homestake Pass. Of course I flew past them. First time I ever got to pass a FxF truck that wasn't broke down :-D

    EDIT: TWO FxF trucks in a row! How 'bout them apples?

    When I leave it's going to be back to otr for me. I miss running the open road. Gonna buy my own truck again, been doing a lot of research and talking to a lot of guys and got it narrowed down to where I think Ill go. I should have enough for a good down payment by February. Already buying things here and there that I'll need to get back at it. I'm gonna get a personal 401k and dump every cent I can into it. Then in a few more years I'm getting the heck out of California!!!

    Hey cool35, I'm thinking the same thing! Only I'll run tankers for awhile. Thought about chemical/Hazmat but think off with food grade first and see how it goes! Later, crazey out!
