    CRE '17 - Woot!

    Have a dentist appointment on Thursday then I'll finally be ready to come back out and play. I figure 6 weeks off is sufficient. Bill, I'll race you for California. [emoji100][emoji469] [emoji267][emoji160][emoji274] [emoji85][emoji86][emoji87]

    Cargo Van Buying New Van

    I heard somewhere that diesel will be reformulated for even less sulfur in the coming years. That is bound to increase the cost of diesel fuel. It's also becoming almost impossible to find pure diesel. Most of the diesel is being blended with biodiesel which hurts fuel economy and emissions...

    Cargo Van Buying New Van

    Many modern vehicles actually engage the rear brakes a fraction of a second before the front brakes for better stability. Hence rear brakes wear more.

    Cargo Van This company will load with Hazmat, no insurance and leave you for dead literally

    The REMOTE possibility of not being covered for insurance when paid for by a carrier is the main reason I prefer to get my own insurance. I pay directly and hold the policy. I know exactly what I'm covered for and the quality of the insurance company. It's I may pay a few dollars more but I...

    So you want to become an Expediter here's some info for you

    Ask for contact information for their current drivers. Contact the drivers and find out from them what's actually going on out on the road. Then you can make an informed decision. That company might be the hidden gem that you can make a good buck at or it could just be another bottom-feeder...

    Every business I've ever owned or managed I've had competition undercutting my prices. This business is in no way a unique business that differs from any other business in America. Every business person has competitors that they have to deal with and it's up to the individual business person to...

    Cargo Van Buying New Van

    Don't let the overhang on the Transit worry you. I don't have any problems with heavy loads. It is also an advantage when parking, if you back into a spot along a curb the overhang can stick out over the grass and the rest of the Transit can fit in a regular size parking space. Ford's 3.5...

    April @ Crossroads Express!!

    It's about 8% low. At 65 mph it reads around 60. I mostly use my GPS speedometer so it not too bad. I'm looking into aftermarket tuners that allow you to recalibrate your speedo for different size tires.

    April @ Crossroads Express!!

    Well, I've been home since Easter so I guess it's about time to head back out into the cruel world of expediting. Hopefully Bill will leave a few loads for me. [emoji6] Got rid of my baby tires and put some real ones on my Transit. Michelin LTX M/S 2 245-75-16. Now it looks like it should...

    Our Life on the Road Mobile Hotspots & WiFi On The Road

    I use a Wi-Fi signal booster with a separate magnetic antenna that I can attach to the outside of my van. It makes a big difference when you're right on the edge of a Wi-Fi signal that keeps cutting out on you.
