"If there was 24" of snow on the roads, our company would fire me if i tried to get out there in that. The vans cost lots of money and so does the insurance to cover them, not to mention YOUR safety and cost of any injury you might get if u have a wreck.... gotta be nuts to drive (a service truck) in that . ".

"One thing I liked about being a road guy for 18 years is all the people you meet. Different truck, different problem, different operators. Over time you will gain valuable experience that cannot be taught in a class. Have fun.".
