    Thanks for the reply. I browsed and finally came up with it. I also check with a broker friend who wasn't familiar with this site, although he moves produce everyday. The prices do reflect some reality from what I've seen the various markets and growing regions.

    By examining these charts, good reefer loads do get $2- plus p/mi on these charts, but the back hauls reduced me to $1.70 p/mi average for 2011.

    This independent owner operator average still beats any of the lease driver deals out there, most of which average less than $1.40 p/mi. I have to pull my own trailer, find my loads, do my IFTA and other paperwork, lose out on some minor benefits for that extra 30 cents p/mi, but I also don't face risky balloon payments, dangerous contract language, annoying dispatchers, or weekly statements from accounting that don't add up.

    Don't claim to be an expert on Fl by any means but it seems like the money is in running north and south over there. By that I mean east coast. I won't run northeast so I rarely go to FL because the rates coming back west out of there are pathetic 9 months of the year and barely adequate the other 3. Just my opinion.

    Not much in FL right now but there are some reefer loads around northern Ga. and SC. going to the east coast and back to the midwest and than midwest to mountain west(Id,Co,Ut) and than back east and than south to FL. would be an ideal lane. In other words,you might end up deadheading to Ga or SC and get a good-paying short load going east and than a reload back to the midwest(Il,In,Oh,WI) and than try to reload for ID or UT. Id seems to have a good amount of freight going back east and south. I don't see hardly anything in Ca and Az yet. However in a couple of weeks Ca. should start booming and that will make your running lanes easier. Hope this helps.

    I 'll agree with ShortBusKid; being an experienced Broker dealing with Florida, the only money outbound to make is up-n-down the east coast. Inbound to florida pays good; but we all know the outbound is bad most of the year!

    LTL pays good going too Florida; but again, the outbound is where they hang you!

    Come on Jack5; seriously running to Cali, for that whopping $1.30; just to hope for that big money load back east - with drops I might add! Not to mention all the Cali. B/S, to go with it?? NO way you can have it "all" sir..
    You can make just as much only inbound to Colorado, reload and head eastbound; and never deal with Cali....
