I did not know you had an equipment escort service.  I see escorts running by here all the time on I-40.  Very valuable service.

i cut back in 95, and closed shop in 2000.

i was paying my drivers $25 per hour, and the truck "was theirs" 

i paid for everything, but they took it home and kept it clean. 

when rates dropped down to $30 per hour for truck, i said enough and sold the trucks to the drivers if they wanted them. 

i still do an occasional move for friends when they need it. 

all but 1 of my 7 trucks are still on the road. 

the first 89 was killed 4 years ago when a large oak tree fell on the cab crushing it. when it was pulled apart we found the trans case cracked, and the frame bent. with a little over 600,000 miles on it, Pete decided to let it go and parted it out.
