Ran the Ogden trap all last week. This Percival truck with Vantage trailers was running it with me.

That's a sharp rig there, long and lean. 8)
Nice catch!

They have a few of them just like that, just different colored stripes. They haul crude oil with them too.

Still just been running the Ogden trap. Starting to have some issues with the air system on my trailers, so been real busy trying to solve problems when I'm not working them. Here's a new Kenworth that the Skidmore shop has been customizing for a customer.

Nice pair of rigs there Ryan, love the colors on the KW and the Pete is just sharp from front to back.

Figured if the boss paid to have all the aluminum cut in the spring, the least I could do is hand polish it and seal it up before snow flies, haha. Also, about time to go over-the-road for winter, so that meant a deep cleaning of the whole interior so my house is nice and fresh. It's been a great season working for Parsons, they're keeping me busy way later in the season than I expected, but unfortunately, it will end after Thanksgiving. I've been busting my hump trying to come up with belly dump work anywhere in the state and the only thing I've got left is if my old boss at Francis will broker me a little Idaho salt (he already gave me two loads). I'd like to stay hooked to bellies until Christmas, but I think that'll be slim odds. Today I'm gonna call Eliason and get set up to pull one of their reefers for the winter...already looking forward to next spring! Now that it's finally slowing down, I hope I have time to finally get the lights under the cab and sleeper working, after driving the truck for nearly a year, haha. Now I'm gonna go run the Ogden trap again (my second home).

Ogden trap for Parsons has been getting kinda hit and miss, so I've hauled a little to Smithfield lately and up to Croydon for Pisgah Rock Products. Also, Parsons STILL wants me to keep calling in to see if they can use me somewhere every morning, so I've made it a lot farther than I'd planned. A big job just came up hauling five inch limestone to a sugar beet plant in Nampa, Idaho though...so I MIGHT have belly dump work all winter IF a bigger carrier doesn't come pinch us little guys out. I've hauled two loads up there so far and it is easy duty! Also, haven't called Eliason yet about pulling a reefer over-the-road because the boss just got us a contract hauling grocery store loads out of the Smith's distribution center in Layton. I did a load to Wendover Friday night, went pretty good I guess.

Sounds like work is running pretty steady, glad to hear that.
Also, the 9900 is looking good (as usual). 8)

Thanks, I pulled bellies until December 7th, then I started pulling the grocery loads and did that for six weeks. Me and the boss had been butting heads all year, but it started getting worse and I actually ended up quitting. I've been back at Francis for a week now.
