    People make the mistake of believing what a recruiter tells them!

    Then there second mistake is believing that they will get 12000 miles a month!

    If your lucky and get a good trainer you might be prepared for 80% off the things that can and will go wrong!

    You may not be charged for your over idle if you like to sleep extremely warm and you only stop for your 10hr break! (That scenario is extremely unlikely)

    JJ has been with Central for 18 months and a L/O for the last 13 months and unless he has a student on the truck he is flat getting 12000 miles a month!!

    Don't get me wrong people JJ is happy enough with Central at the moment.

    we realize the economy is in the crapper and not looking like getting any better any time soon!

    But in truckin nothing is guaranteed!

    Even though it was hard to read, I did feel the emotion behind what L.B. is saying. It's a sad time for so many. I counted 7 forclosures within a 3 block area in my neighborhoods and dozens of for rent signs. I have friends that have lost their jobs due to RIF and are in danger of losing their home and their car. I have two other friends who have had to take a 10 percent cut in order to keep their job, and others who keep getting furloughed because the state can't pay them.

    L. B. I hear ya, but unfortunately you are not alone. It's been tough for lots of people. I don't even know if I'll have a job come this August. I know we are all praying for this depressed economy to pick up soon.

    Well I'm back on the road and #### glad of it. Came back out on Mon. and headed to Liberal for a meat load. Only had to sit 24 hrs for it. Woo hoo. Am heading to a place called North East, MD. What a name for a town!!!!

    Would have got on;line yesterday but had 1 of these "connecting to a roaming network. RU sure U want to do thsi?" Sure seem to be having a lot of that with this new modem. Heavy sigh here. Have At&T and am kind of getting frustrated with it. Anybody having better luck with something else?

    Sure hope I don't get stuck in any short loops like the other poster and have to stay up there.

    Question- when Central runs a meat load, are ya'll continous or on cycle? Seems that we've just gone continous so am being curious.

    Thats about it for now. 0500 and I'm just pretty #### beat!!!

    There are a lot over in my area too. Where I live is full of rich ####### and you think they would be able to afford a house. But no, they buy all toys and only realize it when the bank starts coming for the money that is owed.


    I know friends who love verizon because of the problems you are having.

    just an FYI for those who would like to know or those who aren't aware of the distinctions: The spelling of Their, There and They're.
    There is in reference to location (over THERE. It goes THERE).
    Their in reference to person (THEIR dog ran away. It is THEIR car).
    They're is a compound word, similar to Can't, Won't etc. (THEY'RE concerned about the condition of the road---Translated from THEY ARE).

    I see the spelling used incorrectly a bunch, so for those who weren't aware or those who care----here you are.
    Poobah Thanks this.
