It's a Team's Life
Wow we need another HOS restart
Last year was slow for us and once 2017 hit so did the freight volumes and the truck has been running its wheels off. It has been a great year with good loads and we are enjoying every minute of it.
Driving the Speed Limit
Circumstances and our commitments determined that we needed to run the speed limit to make our
12.5 Mile Per Gallon
Running the speed limit can be a little daunting when used to running 58 to 60 mph and having to step up and run 70 mph or the speed limit of about 649 miles. What was interesting is running at these speeds was how well the truck performed with fuel mileage. Three-quarters of the day gone and the fuel mileage had crept up to 13.1 MPG and then I turned north and the wind started hitting me from the side and by the time I parked I was at 12.5 MPG. To say I was pleased with the fuel mileage the Cascadia was able to achieve at these speeds was an understatement.
Running against the
We are thankful for the ride of the Cascadia as we are able to sleep much easier in a truck that handles the bumps in the road without trying to throw us out of the bunk. As a driver, the drivability of this truck is a shoulder saver and from reports, we have heard the next generation of Cascadia is even more awesome. As long as the freight is this hot we will continue to say yes to loads and constantly watch our hours so we can stay in the income groove.
