    Manager said it would be a Tuesday start on the z board. And do you know what the money looks like doing that?.

    I just get overwhelmed. Like the first day o don't drive I'm just shadowing the driver and learning the paperwork and hooking and unhooking sets. It already seems like a crap load of stuff to remember.

    Even in the northeast you think that's possible? That's pretty good for being gone twice a week

    A little late to the party but 85k sounds about right your 1st year. A guy i worked with in the oilfield went to Estes doing the same as you. 5 days out 2 at home. He called it "running wild" going wherever they needed him. Said his gross was about 1650-1700 every week on the bottom of the pay scale

    I ran through Buffalo last night and that sleeper truck was parked so I’m guessing he must still be training.
