I work for a company that delivers beverages all over the state of Colorado.
My hub is in Denver, but I take deliveries from Denver all over the state.
I have a special commercial driver’s license that allows me to drive large semi trucks. I often carry large and heavy loads of cargo. The beverages are stacked from the floor to the ceiling. I was on my way to a city on the west of Denver and I had to travel over the mountain on the interstate. I was carrying a very heavy load of beer and soda. Halfway up the mountain, the truck transmission started to heat up and I had to pull over. When I tried to restart the truck, I didn’t have any power at all. I had to contact the Denver company where I work and they sent a repair crew to help with the problem. Unfortunately, there was no one available at the time. I was stuck on the side of the Denver road for 6 hours. I had to sit in the truck with no heat and no blankets. A couple of people pulled over to see if they could lend assistance, but there was really nothing they could do. The truck had to be towed up the rest of the hill. After the shop mechanic looked at the vehicle, he realized that the engine had a ton of problems. The truck is now in the shop until further notice and I am driving a brand new truck. It has a nice heater with warm seats too. I won’t get stuck anywhere with this vehicle.
