    I only lasted three months running out of 179 for Estes. I'd get the miles, sure. 2800ish per week, but too many #### stops. Managed to get halfway through a 2nd trip sheet in one week.

    Moved to AZ and working for a different company, but I might try reapplying out here if things don't work out. I hear it's way better out west

    What terminal is 179? AZ is kinda iffy because you can go into California. That's what you don't want lol

    179 is Chicopee, MA. Spent a lot of time bouncing between there and the terminals out towards Boston, Jersey City, North Bergen... There was one night I had to cross the GWB 3 times. If I wasn't stuck in New England I was struggling on hills in Pennsylvania. That accounts for like 90% of my driving in the three months I was there.

    That was my experience as well, on the extra board for 10.5 months out of Richmond VA 001. Still there, on a schedule for now. Best $$$ I've ever made for the amount of time & effort. @KaoMinerva good thread man, spot-on. Freighthauler87 on YouTube has good info as well

    @KaoMinerva are yall seeing any increase on freight since central freight is closing down.

    I hope Mr Estes only buys central's linehaul trailers since the tractors for the most part are in such poor shape.
