The place I worked at in high school had two Macks with air starters. Not fun at all in winter on old trucks.

Mark...I'll take that as a complement!

I started driving in 1978 and the first driving for "Farm Services" hauling ammonia and gasoline with an old "binder" (International) with a twin stick 4x4, complete with air start. I've hauled about everything off and on from refer, flatbed, baffles tanks and doubles. I ran with 3 log books for many years.

Then one day (1996) I had a dream of starting our business and we went for broke. I also drove charter coaches on week ends trying to make a little extra money when we started our business. Thankfully it all worked out
