    I'm lookin for a couple of drivers from the South Florida area, Miami dade, broward, palm beach area who are interested in working the 20/10 program. I hear mixed reviews about the program and I'd like to give it a try. I need co drivers who have a positive outlook (at least somewhat) and like to drive so we can make every mile possible during our 20 days out. Male or female (I'm female), smoker or non-smoker (I don't but smoking doesn't bother me). I'd also like to hear from anyone who is currently working the 20/10 for CRST(not the negative assumption makers) I'd like to know how you like it. Pay, home time, etc

    Are they offering 20/10 in south florida? You might want to check on that. They usually only offer the 20/10 in the heavy freight lanes, which South Florida is not.

    But anyway, I did 20/10 and I don't recommend it, if you are about making as much money as possible. Think about it...can you afford 10 straight days off without a paycheck?...what happens while on your 20 the truck breaks down and you lose a couple days...then you go home for 10? I know CRST claims the wheels are always turning with the 20/10 drivers...but its not always true. I sat for over a day on 2 different occasions which wouldn't be as big of a deal if I was out for a 4 weeks at a time with 4 days off.

    It sounds great in theory, but the reality is a different story

    Ok, I'll see ya Monday, I start that day too. If we don't find a third driver to try the 20/10 we can still co-drive, I live in ft lauderdale. Only thing is I already have my permit so school for me is only 2wks.

    I don't know, I'm not gonna be a contract student. If you pay upfront it's cheaper and you're not obligated to stay the 8mos. Plus your cpm is higher when you start.

    They have it, I already checked. Did you work 20/10 for CRST? They already offer 3wks out 3 days home. I have a life and I'd rather 10 days home. They say the dispatch the 20/10 truck as priority. I'm gonna try and see how it is. If its bad, illgo back to reg team

    Yep I did it for CRST. Not being a ######## but if you have a life why go OTR then? You will get the hometime...but I promise you, you won't be happy with the money running 20/10.

    But I went into with the same attitide as you, and when it got bad I went back to teaming. We didn't get along with driver #3 anyway..lol
