    Im interested in tanker work, but have no tank experience. Only been driving 15 months doing P&D and some Linehaul. I have tanker and hazmat endorsements. Where is a good place to start? Of course I want to make as much $$ as possible as soon as possible. I'm single and willing to relocate of necessary, currently in Washington.

    KAG might be good, if you don't mind a small sleeper berth. Praxair, too.

    Lots of food grade going on in Prosser, Grandview, and Sunnyside. LTI, Indian River Transport, Skikos, Button run a lot here.

    Move to a warmer climate.
    15 mos. driving; plenty of companies will hire you.

    you live anywhere near a rail yard? alot of them have contracts with some one for their fueling. fairly easy work, you probably wont hit that "million miler" status until like 20 years though lol

    I hauled milk for 15 months. It was my first driving job. Loved it but that might have had a lot to do with the company I worked for out of Michigan.

    Good people in the milk hauling business. I didn't go farm to farm. I hauled one of the 13 tanks a day that needed to be hauled off the coop farm our trucking company was owned by.

    Plus it's fun to haul a 50 thousand pound pissed off Gorilla in the tank and figure out how to keep him calm and not get him all Riled up.

    Not more tank work, just warmer weather and not have to deal with horrible winter weather.
    I've pulled liquid tankers through your area in the winter, so I know what that's like. I hate ice and snow.
    Do you want OTR or local tanker work?
     
    npok, Cohiba and tommymonza Thank this.

    Are these your shoes?
    At a "small lunch party" at a mansion in Palm Beach, Florida, Epstein turned heads by wearing a pair of velvet slippers that featured the image of a screw on one show and the letter "U" on the other. The "screw you" message was clear to partygoers, and he came off not sweating the baggage of being a known sex offender.
    The shoes in question are available at Stubbs and Wooten, a retailer in Palm Beach. They are listed for $525 and features black Spanish cotton-velvet and clack grosgrain trim, in addition to the outlandish embroidery. The retailer also note that the shoes are hand-crafted in Spain, are lined with leather feature a stacked wooden heel.
