    Got to run down to Georgia.
    Delivered yesterday picked up in Alabama last night outside of Birmingham. Wiper motor went out on the way down so I had to drive through to rain storms with no wipers. That was fun. Spent half the day yesterday waiting on Love's get the motor.

    Probably be down Friday and most of Saturday. I have to go to the Volvo dealer to get a A service and I noticed my truck is losing power for some strange reason. Then I have to go get two new Steer tires and a front end alignment.
    Probably about 2,300 miles for the week due to all the truck issues.

    Been stuck at the hotel since Friday. Bad fuel injector and water pump on the truck. They've had to wait on the part. Bored out of my mind but at least I'm getting paid for it. The part came in today so hopefully I'll be rolling tomorrow.

    8 days at the hotel.
    Had to replace the camshaft and 2 fuel injectors. Got paid for it all but still bored. Had a load for Tennessee Friday but my truck wasn't done so they canceled it. Been one hell of a week.

    Still doing good here. first trip stayed out a full month got home a day early 4 weeks out almost 10,000 miles not to shabby went from Minnesota to texas an back had a load out of st cloud mn that went out to denver waited almost 32.5 hours at shipper waiting for the product to be made. It sucked but didn't bother me to much nothin I could do about that but wait. Trucks running good have to get new batteries other than that no complaints. Not tryin to jinx anything but so far so good miles, loads, dispatch , maintnence, I'm happy so far

    welcome man of god. if you have any questions you can ask me or smurf. smurf has been with sav for awhile so he is the one you should ask first or megan if you have any questions so far. my miles have been very good cant complain, equipment is very well maintained we run volvo 780's the newer volvo 860's and some cascadias. we pull dry van freight we run south southeast midwest some northwest and some southwest alot of texas. the farthest east we go is ohio very rarley will we go out to pa but thats once in a rare while. they like to load you out of mn wi and iowa then get you a backhaul returning to the midwest (mn wi or ia) most of the questions and info you may be looking for are on this forum, or you can ask smurf. once again welcome to sav.
