    Seems about as honest an answer as you can get. Good info!

    The condos are coming in about 15 a month. I have an automatic now, I'm not a fan but with opti idle and inverter, I'm happy. The next order we are getting Eagle package for the Pro Stars and Evolution on the Cascadia. That is probably 6 months out. I'm a night rider and the miles are ok considering how much we get per mile. I'm at .555cpm base rate and average .60cpm on my miles if you add my band pay and reflect the bonus I get as a rate per mile.

    Yep. NorthEast/OTR I stay out 3-4 weeks from time to time. I was hired at 47 cents in 2008. The 18 day out fleet and Northeast regional pay the same. The new base rate cap for both is either .57 or .59cpm. I forgot which. If people in Florida are willing to stay out 18 days they can get the higher rate than the Southeast regional guys.

    Not sure how you figure?if you mean zone 3 then sure. But there is a reason us flordians live in Florida. :) I believe its 80 degrees and sunny at home. Not 40 and cloudy like it is here in windsor lock ;)

    I've met a person who states he's making .64 ppm. I really don't believe that... By the time my two years get here I'll be in the mid.40s or 50s if it's had at.

    That is where I am too. I'm doing a load later a few miles down the road. Jeff Blank has a fleet called the 18 day out fleet as well as Zone 3. Zone 3 I think is slightly less because you come home every other weekend or so.

    It's what you make of it. I won't ever bull crap someone. My experience may be different from yours. I may love the company and you may hate it.

    So is it a good company? It is for me.

    Is the Jacksonville terminal up and running? They were talking about that in September the last time I was in Granger.

    Talked with Sam about two weeks ago. Sounds like they're still working on it. I think (has zero sources) that once Jacksonville us online, they'll close Charlotte for renovations.
