After my second attempt with Werner in ten years, I have finally realized where they set their priorities, and it isn't with the drivers. Anywho, I have been running on the Hy-Vee grocery account since May and finished up on Sept 7th (I was going to go back to running reefers to the east coast). The next day, I got a call from a small company out of Urbandale, Iowa wanting me to continue in Hy Vee. Better pay, a much nicer truck, and I only answer to ONE person... Gee, lemme think... Why hell yeah.
Here are just a couple shots of my ride. It's a 1996 Pete 379EX with a 48" flat top sleeper. 3406E Cat mated to an 18 speed Eaton Fuller. Chrome and polish everywhere and 9" straight exhaust. I'll be in this one for another week or so and move into a newer truck with a bigger bunk (still flat top).
I had the opportunity last week to haul one of the Hy-Vee/Kansas City Chiefs trailers down to KC to pick up the rally towels for the home opener on Saturday. I was able to park in the lot where the players park then drop the trailer by one of the parking area for advertising.
I'm really considering stripping the 359 Werner truck...
