    @nak: #1 who gets 7 days of drop and hook in flatbedding? #2 How do you get 7 days in if your home every weekend.

    @hotrod: I'm on an electronic log. I always run out of my 14 before I run out of my 11. I'm running for another company maybe looking to switch if things don't change. Typically if you come home friday evening or saturday morning when do you leave out. I live in metro atlanta. Do they actualy care about their drivers or are they just meat in the seat.

    depends on your dispatcher on how much they care or how they treat you. when you leave depends on you and when your load delivers sometimes sunday night sometimes monday morning. like most companies its what you make of it.

    the drop and hook comment was not directed at me but at cypress you easily do a drop and hook on the pickup end every day ive gone weeks without ever loading a load before just depends on what your doing and where you are at you know

    I was looking into Cypress TL. There website is a little out of date, broken links etc. Are they still running strong or are things looking bad for them? They are looking for drivers in my area, but I wanna hear from some current drivers about them.

    Anything is good. Thanks.

    Their equipment is not all junk Bigarmin. They are in the process of getting new Pete 386's. I saw this on FB. Finally, there use to be a member who worked for them who attested they take care of the older trucks.
