    I got some news on the pay raise. It's an extra $25 per load, but you have to run into Canada to get it. o_O

    I also found out about the total per diem received. It's the negative amount listed on our last payroll stub of 2017. The amount isn't listed anywhere on the W2.

    Goodness! Must've happened after I came thru there. Wonder what in the world? There's nothing left of it. RIP driver!

    Leaving tomorrow for Lisbon Portugal with my wife for 10 days. Be safe everyone. See you all when we get back.

    Please update any info here on the funeral arrangements for our brother that passed away yesterday. My wife and I would like to help in anyway we can. Thanks.

    On hometime,leaving out Monday morning.

    Kinda got into it with Chris,told him was tired of the 400 mile bs.All I ask from this company,is to run me,and let me see a different area every now and again.Last 2 months truck hasn't been past Ohio,and I had a grand total of 4000 miles before coming home.

    Been with Abilene almost 2 years now,for the most part I like them,but something needs to change.

    I had a similar conversation with my fleet manager. Told him I felt like the only time I got any loads with legs on 'em was when I asked for 'em, and sometimes not even then. Felt like I needed to be one of those guys who just sits on the porch until a west coast load pops up. I don't need to be running out west EVERY load, but something more often than once every 4 months would be nice.

    Things have turned around a bit for me since then, so maybe they will for you too.

    Wow!!! I'm going through the same thing! And even if I ask the result is nothing! Today I was going through the same way of thinking.... It's boring! Same routes; in the same region. And I clearly put in the Abilene application OTR!
    Question for you.... Did you use to drive for Kllm? ( I had a friend a long time ago that had the same name at the forum)
     
    Redtwin and Finfn1372 Thank this.
