    Where in Albany did you get booted at ??? I'm in Albany a fair amount so would love to steer clear of troubles. I have been booted myself.

    The one parked at a pump just hanging out for his 10 hour fuel up.

    The whole long saga is recounted in my first thread. I was booted in a parking lot of an empty grocery store/mini strip mall just a couple blocks from Miller. There is a mutt in a beat up white van who "services" 32 properties I believe he said.

    I posted this on another Jb intermodal thread and it seems particularly apropos for here. I know many of you will yawn but it's awesome relief to me after last year's wild ride.
    Post:
    So far so good. Sometimes I marvel they pay me to do this. I've only been on this account since November so I'm still learning. My pay is gradually inching up and when the darn DMV finally sends my hazmat endorsement it will probably go up another $100 a week. They promised a minimum gross of $1060 a week for 5 days a week and it looks to me like that's about what you will average. You can volunteer to work a 6th day on a week by week basis if you want to make a little more. Spoke to one driver been with them agood while and his minimum goal is $900 gross. Seems low to me but maybe that keeps him comfortable.
    There it is! I stumbled on the right word for this job. Comfortable. Good equipment. home often if you want. Steady loads to pretty much Same accounts so they recognize Jbhunt give you minimum grief. Paid extra for live unloads but 90% drop n hook. Same 2 days in a row off every week and minimum scary snow days.

    You are a hard working gal. I started late on your other thread but I had to read from start to finish. Sorry all your efforts didn’t pay off. You can hold your head high for giving way more than 100%.I’ll be watching you again.

    Well crap. I left my full coffee cup on shelf and drove off. It tipped over and all I could do was watch it pour out the drink hole in a steady stream...on to my bunk.
     
    Sirscrapntruckalot and bigguns Thank this.
