    Ha. Come December when I’m out there on the pass tossing chains on or waiting a closed road out in Wyoming not too much to be jealous about. Then I’ll be saying F this maybe pinebrook wasn’t that bad after all!

    Dam man you east coast guys get roasted on the breaks, hooks, and breakdown. We get $10 for breaks and hooks, and full hourly pay after the first hour on breakdown. Might be time to move west.... :)

    Even that’s not that great, but I guess they have to keep it low with so many stops. It would add up fast on the FX payscale.

    I have, but not in quite a few years. There aren’t many around these parts anymore. I thought they were pretty good.

    The part I liked was they always served them plain, with all the unnecessary crap available at a bar in the middle of the floor.

    I laid down in Michigan one time and ate at fuddruckers. That’s how that place was. Plain burger but middle of floor you load it up how you want it.

    We did 7 loads last week that averaged 220 miles. None of the trailers were ready. All break down and set up.

    It's getting old real quick.

    Still have us beat, our drop and hook is quarter of a hour, which means at $27.20 an hour it's $6.80 to hook or break a set, although our breakdown time starts as soon as you breakdown, you report the start time to central dispatch, breakdown is paid at full hourly rate and that includes regens, those are considered breakdown as well .
