    Dang why didn’t I give up slinging hoses, tractor pumps, and Express Tank Washes years ago? So easy, even a caveman…

    Indian river is a good company most of the time as long as you don't get stuck in a money pit circle in the northeast.

    The worst day driving a tanker is better than the best day pulling a van or reefer. If you know….you know.

    I left food grade to haul gas.

    I'm seriously thinking of returning to food grade.

    There's something that they do up in the northeast that will give you a bunch of short runs (300-450 miles) to make the company money but doesn't pay very well to the driver and keeps you up there. As long as you keep doing long hauls it's okay, but that's probably the same at most companies.

    Whoah!! Thanks for telling me!! I'll tell them before joining them that I wanna run if they are doing that, and I get stuck in there forever then I'll leave.
     
    QuietStorm Thanks this.
