    Ok, what experience do any of you have with being in El Paso? I came here from Waco, TX, had 3 drops, ended in El Paso, now I'm 9th in line on the board and have been here since 3 pm-ish.

    The Flying J there looked like a terminal with so many conway trucks this afternoon. Probably all waiting for a monday load out...

    Hello double yellow! I want to apply for Con-way to work as a team with my wive and I have a couple questions for you.... Do they have steady runs? do they give you more then 5000 miles/week? how often do they get you home? as a team how much they really pay you? Thank you very much and sorry for buttering you!

    I haven't teamed with Conway, but they keep me moving as a solo & I haven't heard any teams complain. Hometime could be as frequent as once every 2-2.5 weeks (you accrue 1 day off for every week out, & once you request hometime figure 8 days to get home) -- unless you're. an owner op in which case you go home whenever you want.

    There are only one or two TA's and a handful of Loves in our system so I wouldnt count on a big discount at either. They do reimburse parking fees though

    Finally getting out of Joplin after being here 9 days trying to get my truck ready. Have a 16:30 pickup at Rock Ten heading to Sringville, Utah...should be a good test for my 99 Volvo. Keep your fingers crossed, mine will be.
