    Yep. I believe we’re looking for one. We don’t do much hiring. Only have 11 company trucks, but I know one is empty.

    I came off hometime and picked up a preloaded trailer in Smyrna. Took that up to sunny, warm, Wisconsin. Lol. Delivered that yesterday and picked up in Milwaukee, rolling to Tennessee. Got a call from dispatch. A new driver of ours messed up on the Elog and can’t make delivery. So, we swapped in Kankakee, IL. And his load delivered in the same location as my prior delivery. Now I’m waiting on a door in Milwaukee, heading for a drop and hook in Lebanon.

    Already preplanned for a drop and hook in Murfreesboro, heading to Cleburne, TX.
    BTW, man it’s cold up here!! Lol.

    Been a bit since I’ve posted. I picked up onions and headed back to Tennessee. I did a short run on Friday down to Monroe, GA and came back empty. I took a few days off and picked up a loaded trailer and went to Wisconsin. Was given a 5 stop load, two picks in Wisconsin and two picks in the Chicago area, and took it to Dallas. I’m sitting in a dock getting loaded and heading to Lebanon for a drop. Wheels are rolling...

    Like my previous post. Still rolling good. Took a trip to Florida and to Wisconsin and back. Just came off home time yesterday and I dropped in Texas. Was given a 3 stop pick up all in the Dallas area heading back to Tennessee. It really helps having a dispatch system that works well with the Elogs.
     
    Getsinyourblood Thanks this.

    Things have changed since my last post. I moved back to the Tampa, FL area. Didn’t plan on this move for a few years, but was willed a home, so it was time. Anyway, Dark Horse don’t hire in that area. So I had to move on. Have really nothing bad to say about them. Very nice people to work for and strongly recommend them if you live in the Nashville area.
     
    Getsinyourblood and 48Packard Thank this.
