    One benefit of living in the north east is that you’re in demand. Many companies and drivers won’t go to New England. Leave that for people who know it.

    well if it's your only day off, don't get used to it, according to what you say your company lacks in getting you home.

    you may be home today, my question would be, do you have to go out Christmas night..??

    i worked for a company that got me home christmas eve, but I HAD to go back out christmas night..

    that didn't settle well with me, given all that running i did for them.

    there are NO BENEFITS to living here in the north east...

    let me see if i can count the reasons why...

    1) high gasoline prices

    2) high home heating oil prices

    3) high auto insurance prices

    4) high housing prices, both rentals and purchasing

    5) high food prices

    6) high taxes

    7) congested areas

    8 ignorant people

    9) stupid people

    10) lousy elected officials

    11) tolls

    12) prudish/puritan laws

    13) cold, ice, snow

    14) massive amounts of road salts to rot away that expensive car, truck, SUV that you own.


    15) many more, but i need my morning nap now.......

    We have 3 of us at this terminal. You could pull what one does on holidays. Oddly, one of his relatives dies. :rolleyes:

    When I did trash. One year all my apartments were due Christmas Day. They’re 3 times a week. Thought I’d get them all Xmas eve. I got home at 9:30pm on Xmas eve. Looked at the dumpsters at my apartments. They were all overfilled and spilling on the ground.
    Yup... they were right. I just don’t fit in.

    The premise is wrong. You work for a company that only gives you 1 day off, that's not a benefit of living in the northeast. I live in the southeast.... I'm home and off until Jan 3rd

    Even though I've never officially lived in Las Vegas I was running dedicated to and from for a while and I would always take my 34's there. Time of my life I will never forget , all good no bad , except for occasionally having hangovers and occasionally wondering what the girls name was that I would wake up next to lol yes fun times indeed. What is the buzz like now that the Oakland / Los Angeles / Oakland Raiders are becoming the Las Vegas Raiders ? I can only imagine the weekends there when 2 nfl teams show up. Should be insane.

    I don't know, www.lasvegassun.com keeps up with all that sports stuff. For other entertainment it's www.lasvegasmagazine.com
    This is a great place to live though; no regrets after moving here. Even today people outside in shorts and tee shirts.

    Very little benefit as a trucker. You take loads into NE, unload and deadhead out and load for west coast.

    The NE still retains certain places I cherish for historical and other preservation as well as food etc and people. Very good. But the south is a much cheaper and easier way of living in today's overpriced society.

    I'll run the NE because that is my old stomping grounds from 21 and did not know any better. But I would not make a home there. Lancaster would be the closest in PA I might. Or up in Luke Md. Or further west.
