    I bet someone will. I would dead head 3-500 miles and pick up a 7k dollar load to California instead

    I though I was going crazy for telling her no she said she moves it for $5400 every day. I guess I’m going broke cuz I ain’t taking that rate.

    I hear that most times I call a broker. I don’t care what everybody else moves your crap for, doesn't mean I will.

    I can’t imagine running a load for that as an O/O. I’m a company driver (local) and my loads pay anywhere from .75 to 1.25 a mile.

    That's a 1.65 per mile......that only means California ain't the place to go right now, or that PA freight is really weak
