    Yeah that usually a little to far south for the bigger companies. Most companies i know are up by starke, Lake city, lake butler and in ocala. But most want 2 years . Did you look into Werner. Not a good company but they would prolly retrain you and they have a terminal in lakeland fl which isnt that far from you.

    OK.... I have somebody you can call. Remember, your experience is less then ideal. But get in over here, get your miles up, and move the heck out of Florida. Oklahoma is a great place to be a trucker. Call Lester Coggins in Okahumpka. They will hire from your area and with your experience level.

    Florida is tough. Seems fl is like the black plague in the trucking market right now. Looks like things are going to start on the up turn mid feb to march. Companies are starting to hire again but the competition is fierce since so many drivers are out of work. It seems without a twic card and hazmat , florida is impossible. Since you only have 10 months exp and it has been awhile since you last drove, it will be even harder. Good luck.
