    This dude literally refuses to work. While I was getting 800 miles a week you were getting 2700

    Hey drivers, so not too long ago I started at 005 (Winchester, VA) as a P&D driver. I'm liking it so far, feel like I've been doing good at it. Been wondering about how the extra board/linehaul and the combo/hub positions work. I know extra board mainly involves being 5 out and 2 at home. Any chance of ever seeing a daytime route as linehaul? Being northeast obviously changes things too and I know each terminal is different. Would appreciate the advice any of you have regardless of location.

    Dude you'll be waiting forever for a day line haul. I had one before. I didn't even hold it a week before I got bumped lol. I did the run 2 days and got removed by someone with more seniority.

    Anyone here out of the Knoxville terminal? I keep reading that your experience depends a lot on the terminal you're based out of so I'm wondering what it's like here. Chattanooga is also an option.

    My old team partner was out of Knoxville. He hated it. When it was slow he never could get out and ran a lot of northeast seeing a lot of west middlesex freight comes from there.

    Well I heard they're building or already built a new terminal for knox. The problem is just the geography. It's basically the east and you know what that means. 055 all day!

    I ran across a guy that ran out of Greenville. He was on the board 8 years bro. He got off because the east finally ran him into the ground. Said he ain't ever going back board lol.

    So what are some of the best terminals to be based in? Suppose I was free to relocate anywhere in the country.

    In my opinion, I'd say Dallas. It's a big break terminal so everything must come through there EVENTUALLY, it's dead center in the triangle (Dallas, San Antonio, Houston), it's located in such a position that you'll NEVER see the east coast (dispatch tries to keep you within a 1200 mile radius of your home terminal), and it's big enough to where you can have lie seniority but get a run. I wanted to move to Dallas but covid messed that all up. Imo, you really can't go wrong there. El Paso is a good one but it doesn't have a shop and you could potentially go to California. California sucks balls man.
