    I know I have talked to a couple of there drivers and the one had a truck that was BEAT UP!!! Stupid MB motor in it and the thing ended up needing a new motor at 500K miles. He took the truck polished it up keeps it clean and does what he can to keep up on it. He said the company has crap equipment pretty much across the board but they do pay good and you do get home every weekend. He said that 45-55K a year was about normal. Expect to haul lots and lots of wallboard and rolled paper.

    Forgot to mention this a couple of weeks ago, but if things don't go as planned with Cypress you should check in to Shelton over in Altha. Based solely on observation Shelton does not tarp near the amount of loads that Cypress does, almost everything I see Cypress transporting is tarped, I for one don't much care for heavy tarps and Florida heat, but I'm not the most motivated guy out here either.
