Move to the other lane, America

North American Class 8 semi-truck orders hit 42,300 in September, up 92 percent from a year ago.

Yee Haaa! More of 'em, More of 'us', More highway construction.

Fun, Fun, Fun.

Yep.

Same with RV transport drivers. Thousands upon Thousands of trailers sitting on Transport company lots in Northern Indiana. Permanent "NOW HIRING" signs everywhere.

Kids are told "you ought to go to college". Then they go, get a Psychology or English degree, and make nothing. Meanwhile, tradesmen are living in big houses because there are so few of them.

World is skewed.

But somebody is living high, buying large, and needing shipments!

My nephews rig hit a 1,000,000 miles before they retired it. It didn't have a bunch of bells and whistles, but he loved driving it. American made Peterbilt.
