Our Power

Carlisle, Pennsylvania

We have our power. Our tractor. I don’t know whether I’m relieved or disappointed.

We spent eight weeks, yes, eight weeks learning how to be a human syncromesh, how to drive a Super Ten. A big truck with ten gears, double clutching, moving the pre-select button up an down from low gears to high gears, skip shifting and power downshifting.

What kind of a tractor did they give us? An auto-shift. No stick, no clutch. I’m stunned.

We have a Freightliner Century Classic with 150,000 miles on the engine.

Away we go!
