    14 years should get you around .38 or 39 per mile.

    Trucks are castrated at 65 mph with full tread. As your tires wear, it slows. Even though the odometer climbs to about 67 LOL

    They're working on APU's for all trucks. Some have them, some don't.

    Can't help you with the current milage. I'm no longer with them.

    They're a good company, and I still recommend them.

    I was hired as a regional driver. Without the senority, I became an OTR driver when LTL fell off.

    That, and I was "told" to stay out over Christmas day. After repeatedly telling them to have me home...since Thanksgiving.

    It don't work that way in my world.

    Sounds like a good company. I sent them an application, and hope to hear from them, as they seem pretty busy.

    Do you think they'll hire someone with 6-months experience,

    and I"m also curious to know where their terminals are located.

    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]For thirty years, Johnson had arrived at work at 9A.M. on the dot. He had never missed a day and was never late.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Consequently, when on one particular day 9 A.M. passed without Johnson's arrival, it caused a sensation. All work ceased, and the boss himself, looking at his watch and muttering, came out into the corridor.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Finally, precisely at ten, Johnson showed up, clothes dusty and torn, his face scratched and bruised, his glasses bent. He limped painfully to the time clock, punched in, and said, aware that all eyes were upon him, "I tripped and rolled down two flights of stairs in the subway. Nearly killed myself."[/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]And the boss said, "And to roll down two flights of stairs took you a whole hour?" [/FONT]
