    Considering taking the leap into trucking - For my family's sake, I would need to be home on the weekends- I have a 7 year old and my wife simply needs me there...Who are the best regional/LTL carriers out there? I live in Charlotte, NC - I am totally green, would either go private school or company-sponsored CDL, although I am leaning towards private school(TDI in Richburg, SC, 30 mins from my house). In the past, @Chinatown has mentioned Magnum, TWT, Crete(I think), Freymiller, FFE, etc as good options for me. I also hear Millis is solid as well. I also see that Old Dominion seems pretty solid....Any help would get GREATLY appreciated. Seriously considering NOT going back to my corporate desk job at this point.

    Old Dominion probably best for weekends home.
    The others, probably not.
    I think Millis Transfer is home weekends; call and ask. Millis has their own cdl school in Eden, NC.
