    It's cool they will keep you running I avg Between 2700 and 3000 a week. Money is good to just let them know how you like to run

    I ran so much I never went home with Western Express lease purchase. I got my truck down from $50,000 to $37,870 in 9 months, my fleet manager starved me out by sending me to distribution centers with no empty trailers available...whether I got there crack of dawn, morning, noon or night to beat other drivers there. I'd end up sitting, or looking for a trailer for hundreds of miles, then it would start snowing, then I'd be forced to shut down bobtailing. If I refused a load, that wasn't beneficial, like a load going 600 miles, 46,000 pounds or more, on a highway with hills and furl surcharge .26 cents... I'd be forced to sit for a day, if I wasn't getting any miles, I'd be in hole $1,000 then he'd work the hell out of me to make my money back then when I'm out of the hole I'd bring home $100 after expenses.....it got so bad. They pushed new drivers in and kicked the old drivers out recycling people like plastic, then burn them out and start over. And tell you, you didn't know how to run a business. Was on my 2nd fleet manager, gave up. My total take home pay for the month of November $1000 -December $600 to February was only $600 for the MONTH!!

    Now I can tell you this when you first come all loads will be light then they will gradually get heavier, the best advice if you get a new truck stay out and grind you will take home at 10k in your pocket that month. Save your money and buy your own truck I have my 93 Pete parked at my house using the dart money to restore it

    I just got approved for Dart and Highway Sales as well...thinking about coming out of retirment to go back OTR...in NC...anything with Dart in NC either dedicated or regionl? I do't mind running OTR but since i have 15 years constant road experience i figured i have paid enough dues to stay out of the NE region..
