    Thanks, Harvey.. I'm going to apply to all that will take my app. I don't want to go OTR if I can get something local, or even regional. Heck to be honest I would probably enjoy working on the dock driving a forklift for awhile.. I'll apply to them all, and let ya know what they say.

    Um, no offense, but based on what I see of UPS Frieght and regular UPS line-hual and local tractors, your getting into a pot/kettle thing here with your comments about SAIA.. I know in my area, all the UPS freight tractors are at least 10 yrs old, most are closer to 15. The regular UPS tractors are pushing 10 yrs, although I did see they got 18 new tractors last fall (two have already been totalled), and another 10 on order due sometime in April.

    Fedex seems to get new 4 to 8 new tractors every 4 months, and the mexicans are buying up the old ones.

    That's EXACTLY what my son did !!! Went to work for Coca-Cola stocking shelf's at the local store's and when they offered the opportunity to go for his class A, he went for it at NO COST to him. As a matter a fact, He was getting paid at the same time he was going to class. I've brought this up before in other thread's, but the newbie's are to LAZY to do the RESEARCH so let them do it the hard way. BTW, my son is no longer at Coke, he drive's for U.S. Food's which are nationwide, UNION, and love's it.

    Great post, I did some reigonal work here in there out of a daycab but I've never been OTR either. I started out at a lumber company doing anything from tractor trailers to stake body gmc 4500's stocking drywall...
