    Only you can answer that question. If I had to run the eastern seaboard on a daily(nightly) basis,I would probably be in a strait-jacket. Piloting a rig among all those people/cars just makes my teeth itch.
    Lab work and already gone Thank this.

    under a shade tree
    i ran MA to Richmond, VA , 3-4 times a week for several years. (same run)

    i ran MA to Elizabeth, NJ for several years..(same run)

    now i have a quieter ride each night going north from MA to ME. (same run)

    i wouldn't want to ever go OTR ever again. doing OTR was no time home for me.
    doing the east coastal routes, i am home daily.

    i wouldn't want it any other way, since i don't have to pack no more than a brown bag for my lunch, and snacks.

    no truck stops BS to put up with, no scales to put up with, easier and quicker road service, rather than out somewhere in "bum-hurt America"

    do as you wish, each of us have our our "comfort zone".

    i'll take the NYC, NJ, CT traffic anyday...........
    tman78, Puppage and bentstrider83 Thank this.

    Indian River Transport is probably a good fit for you. Real nice equipment and hauls food grade liquids, such as milk, wine, etc. Coast to coast and also have some regional.

    For sure. Run some long hauls out of various spots. And get some cheeseplant loads delivered while waiting on the next longhaul. Plenty of ways to keep the wallet full over here.

    You have the big money ticket, just call around to the national tank outfits. There are tons that will make sure you want local again in a few years.
