    With the shortage of “good drivers” I’d imagine that layoff if it did happen would probably last a week lol.

    Your prolly right. Had it been linehaul I would of probably done it and rolled the dice. It was before the flu started going around and the freight picked up though.

    Played at Estes for a few years on the Extraboard. Couldn't get home daily bid for 10 years at small barn I was at so I ran team with a buddy at R&L for almost 2 years. Wife graduated so I went back to a Ground contractor I used to work for. Home daily bid run with a p&d pick up before my linehaul. Low 100k but no benefits but I have my wife's so it works out ok.

    No never looked into it before. It would take a lot to get me to leave. For sure 100k+. I only do 400 miles a night with about a 5 hour nap a night.


    Not sure who’s in the area and hiring. Biggest place would be Evansville IN nearest me. I see ads for air gas a lot.

    Air Gas definitely giving out 100k+, great benefits etc…got the rundown from a driver here in the Detroit area.

    He actually said it was closer to 150. Starting off. Home every night.
