    I started a thread in the O/O section as well. I'm curious to see who is out there.

    Maybe one leased to a company but a true owner operator I doubt it. The bonds to do so are over a million bucks.

    Yeah, someone leased to a carrier is what I would expect. I see quite a few at the rack I pull out of, but nearly all of them run for the same company. I'm hoping to find others.

    No... a local outfit. I don't want to throw out any names or location. The guys I do talk to there, don't seem to want a lot of help...if you know what I mean? Lol. I will honor that.

    Smallest guy around my area with his own #s has like 5 trucks..... All he does is cut rates trying to stay busy.

    If you want to buy a truck you gotta go the "lease to a carrier" route.

    I do a little of it in the winter (fuel oil) with someone else's #s and it ain't what it used to be.

    Pulling fuel tanks rocks best job ever. Same pay empty or full. O/O make 2.50 per mile. Plus drops I average 16,000 km per month.
