    I have a hard time with the 3 million miles. He drove for J B Hunt before he came to Holland as a casual in 93 or 94. Also he is a P&D driver, the math doesn't add up. And yes I am out of the same terminal.

    The formula at Old Yellar......Every 10 years accident free as a P&D driver was the equivalent of 1 million road miles.

    So what your saying is at Yellow it really had nothing to do with actual miles driven, 10 years safe driving just magically became 1million miles? Lol sounds like Yellow has been embellishing numbers even before the nightmare of being acquired by them in 2005.

    What ever it was at New Penn didn't matter much. On the road I average 120K a year. When I retired, I never saw my million miler award, even though I asked. I was told it takes a couple years past the point to actually receive it.
    Maybe they were too cheap to give me another hat, or a toy truck ...

    That sounds about right. I received my million miler watch about my 12th year. Hostling counted towards it as well.

    So I had a good friend and coworker, a Linehaul Driver who truly is a 3 million mile accident free company verified driver call me and ask how far do city drivers run in Atlanta? He had read the latest company rag about our P&D Driver that has over 3 million accident free driven miles in a commercial vehicle and was appalled by the Companies EMBELLISHMENT of Herschel's RESUME and had figured he would have to have driven 400 miles a day 5 days a week, 50 weeks a year for the last 30 years. Yeah, that's really easy to believe. Truly Sad
