    Sorry, wrong print. I meant 440 miles a day. Yes I was a bit off. If it is long distance driving, it seems to be within the possibilities?

    Heard a kid in one of our terminals cry about not getting miles,but refuses 2-300 mile loads.Claims he needs at least 700 miles before he will accept it.If my tires can turn,they are a turning.

    200 to 300 mile loads can also add up. Think of it like pennies adding up to dollars.

    God bless every American and their families! God bless the U.S.A.!

    What that pic doesn't show is there is an incline and by popping the truck on the curb the driver will not roll off his bed. :)

    And yes, that's tongue in cheek...

    Stay away from Crete. They used to be good, but that's in the past. They're good no more. They tried to force me to pay for a tow and repair (over 5200 bucks) of a broken U joint they hadn't greased.

    Seems like a lot of the drivers I knew are no longer with crete for some reason or another it’s a shame I hope I can still get out to the mountain west and west coast 4-5 times a year
