    I got a load to Denver I couldn't turn down. I see that Denver sucks to get a load out of. Where do you guys dead head back to? Any place better than another?

    Any decent of money on these loads or are the low balling? This would put me in my back yard if it had any kind of money on it.

    Also, when unloading in Denver got outside Denver to the Loves at Bennett,CO. Great place!!!! Your not in a crap hole truck stop in Denver. This place is nice. Next door is a Tractor Supply, McDonalds, Chesters Chicken, Taco Bell, Subway, Liquor Store, barber shop and a wicked grocery store with the most awesome deli section. These ladies cook all sorts of meals like Salmon, Meat Loaf, Stuffed Peppers, Chicken, Steak and so on and so on. You pick one entree and 2 sides to go with it for $6.00. Tons of pasta sides, fried rice. I could go on and on. They have TONS of sides they make there. Also, the Loves Wifi is pretty much 100% signal no matter where you park. My favorite truck stop anywhere.

    Also. You can make a pretty decent living running non stop from KS to Denver then dead head back. The road is pretty much flat the whole way and a nice drive.

    Back to where you loaded. If there isn't enough on it for a round trip run, you low balled. I guess you could grab some dirty cheap freight out of kc or okc.
