Friday, March 30, 2007, 21:43Hung out for a little while at the Mother Ship, CRST headquarters in Cedar Rapids, IA. Used my one year safe driver coupon, worth $120 at the company store, to get a bunch of shirts to replace my ratty ones, a pair of CRST bibs for Rebekah (really cute) , and a ***** as a gift for ***** who collects those things. (sorry, he might be reading)
I met my dispatcher today. He seems like a nice enough guy. I guess I'll give him a pass on what he said the other day. At 525,255 miles this tractor (5306) is just a few weeks away from it's 550,000 mile retirement party. Not bad for an '05 Freightliner! At 18 months I'm eligible for a brand new truck! I don't know if it'll be an '06 or '07 model, but it will be new with no tree hits, bent cab extensions (from not paying attention & turning too sharp ) or engine abuse.
Can't wait for that new truck smell!!
