    Don't forget Tennessee...
    When I first moved to Cookeville in '94 it was to start an expansion to a factory here. It was an adventure hiring people from this area.
    Actually had a young man working for me who came to work one day bragging about getting his Aunt pregnant.

    Made it to Deason with a little time left on my day. Pushed over 3400 paid miles in 7 days, and have 6.04 total hours for tomorrow.

    I made a personal mistake today...I stopped for groceries at Walmart in the daytime...what was I thinking...Walmart...with the sun shining...on a holiday weekend...I must be nuts....:eek:...but I didn't have to smack anyone...well, not hard at least...

    2. Apu and inverters installed
    3. 68 mph
    4. Forward facing cameras working with the Bendix wingman system.
    5. Hometime is
    a. Weekly 34 hr reset
    b. 2 weeks out 3 days off
    c. 3 weeks out 4 days off
    6. Fuel at Pilot/Flyingj
    7. Suggested routing provided but if you choose a different route nobody says anything as long as you don't go too far out of route

    Good luck....

    Headed for Charlotte for a Tuesday delivery. Had to run from Deason to a customer in Shelbyville for an empty, then they had me deadhead to 840 for a load. The load showed arriving there tonite, but by the time I got there this morning, it was already there. Managed to make it to Dandridge with an hour on my 70. This puts me firmly in the .03 cpm bonus range with 3.5 days at home in May...if things work out right, I might be able to squeak out enough miles to hit the .04 cpm bonus, but I am not holding my breath...if it does happen, cool...if it doesn't I won't be unhappy with the miles I turned.

    Yes...
    Pay depends on level of experience
