    You'll be working with port can haulers who want more money.

    Be safe if you're going to WTX. Wrecks are frequent and terrible out that way!

    There won't be any 38 hour weeks for you in the oilfield. Nothing but very long days out here. Especially if you want to make that money. There's money to be made for sure but nobody is giving any away. You will earn every penny. As for staying in the truck that is an option. Detmar, Western Flyer and Northwest all run sleeper cabs. If you go with Detmar you get a fridge and an APU.

    I worked in the patch and pipelining when there were still no rules. I’d hit 38hrs before lunch on day 3 when I was in a winch tractor.
