Our big truck finally sold two days ago. It was one of those things that caught us off guard. It was up for sale for about a month. We weren’t expecting to sell it anytime soon. We were at a stand-still. Everything depended on her selling, ‘Ling Ling’, our 2006 Sterling, 40-foot box truck. She gave us a lot of memories. I explained in previous posts that my husband, Bill, and I were expediters. We lived in that truck, equipped with an 8×8 foot sleeper, for five years. We traveled the whole country delivering on-demand freight for all kinds of businesses and in all kinds of weather. It was now time for a change. Sell her off and change our lifestyle. It was a hard decision but we were ready. The expediters lifestyle is tough and we were burned out.
This post isn’t all about the memories or sad feeling having to sell ‘Ling Ling’. I really wanted to thank the great people of Diesel Repair Specialists, Beki, Tim and the crew, for always being there when the truck needed repairs and we needed advice. Their team always did a top job and got us back on the road as quickly as possible.
It was Beki’s efforts that sold our 2006 Sterling. She is one hell of a person and has always cared about her customers, that being us. So this is our “Thank You” DRS for all you have done to make our expediting adventures over that past seven years memorable. We will not forget you.
P.S. I got your message about the postcards, I will be sending only the cool ones. 🙂
