2 years Class A. California licensed, all endorsements, except passenger bus. Presently, OTR delivering fresh to DG stores, 5 western states. Desiring Home Daily only.
Applied with oil tanker in North Salt Lake City (savage). Did interview but the "up to 4 to 5 times a day chaining" seems a little bit much for me, night shift and weekends. Like hard work but doing it in heavy snow just not my bag.
Willing to relocate Nevada, Texas or Oklahoma.
Applied to Gemini, said i need to be domiciled with 45 miles of terminal. Inquired with Badlands and said they expect 1 year fuel hauling to be considered.
Only manual experience I have was 6 speed in 2 week school and a few times driving a 10 speed when i first started driving for CRST.
Any leads that anyone might suggest would be greatly appreciated.

Air Liquide Inaugurates in Vegas US its Largest Liquid Hydrogen ...
May 25, 2022. 4 min read. Air Liquide officially opened its largest liquid hydrogen production and logistics infrastructure facility in North Las Vegas, Nevada.
OTR -- delivering to DG?
May God have mercy on your soul!!!
If you think you want the steady routine of a "home daily" gig -- as opposed to the constant variety/different scenery/different places that OTR offers...& without much snow & ice....I think the Vegas area might well be a good fit for you.
Your home daily options will pretty much be as follows (but not totally all inclusive):
- delivering fuel
- delivering cryogenic fluids
- delivering food
- LTL duties (doubles/triples endorsement pretty much a given here)
- delivering mail
From the above -- pick your poison.
The first 2 (as you've already mentioned) will start you out doing nights, weekends...& especially holidays. Thus -- those jobs always have steady turnover (imagine that ).
Unless you are basically in the same physical condition as a football linebacker -- the foodservice gig will have you ready for a hospital room (attractive nurses are always extra cost) within a week. Point being: it's really a young person's game -- for the most part. Those jobs tend to wear people down, & wear them out. Not to mention the aggravation factor that goes with it.
LTL is day shift, or nights -- depending on whether you do linehaul, or pickup & delivery. Not a gig for the faint of heart.
Most mail runs are either evenings, &/or night shift duty.
So -- what am I leaving out? Anyone? Anyone?
-- Lmikloso1 Thanks this.
I already do a lot of manual labor delivering to 4/5 dollar generals per day. rolltainers loaded with milk are 1000lbs plus. Freezer stuff has to be sorted by ice cream and regular frozen and manually stacked on carts. most deliveries are 60 minutes of labor but sometime 90 minute or more. Love the activity of exerting myself to get the necessary cardio. At about $70k annually and unpredictable loads its been kind of drain on my personal life. Even a schedule 5/2 - 5/3 has at least some level of predictability I can try to even out my work/life balance. I prefer night time driving above day time driving but that gig in North SLC, working nights in deep snow is just something I think I cannot hack. Even the interviewers told me they have a high turn over on first year recruits because of the snow and overall filth of mud and petroleum/oil. Perhaps if this was March, I would maybe consider the position and get my 6 months of tanker / haz-mat experience but now that winter is just about to start imma pass that opportunity.
Thanks for the input and leads gentlemen. I do appreciate it very much. I will post any updates.
