    Any O/O's run out of Albuquerque out there? Dry van specifically. Just wanted to know if it's profitable to live there as a O/O. Safe travels and Happy Holidays.

    That's probably one of the worst spots.

    I mean like top bad places:
    1) Florida
    2) Montana
    3) Idaho
    4) New Mexico Albaquerque & Santa Fe specifically.

    You can get stuff going there all day. But it doesn't really pay for the drive out.

    There's pumpkins in the fall, a few spotty things, but no.

    I took stuff there when I took care of my Dad, then I'd drive home. Going in is good. But there's very little coming out.

    Cheap and Heavy runs out there a lot... If you live in that area I would probably move.. Not a whole lot of good stuff comes out of there...

    I just came out of Labatt in Albuquerque and thru this year did some loads . Loads to Albuquerque 2.00+ all day , load prices out not so great . Pumpkin season you can see 3.00 to 3.50 loads but that comes and goes quickly. I'm running Tx to AZ and Nm basically West , rates are ok not great but I'm just trying to stay warm .
     
    Ellimar1021 Thanks this.

    Okay, so where are the BEST PLACES to move to if you want to start out as an O/O?
