    My answer would be to "Try me" with those cakes. We'll see soon enough.

    We sourced our crabs direct from the Bay caught by watermen in the skipjacks (Sailing workships very specific to the bay and the industry) There used to be a loud italian who sold them by the bushel whole sale and we would take the station wagon and go fillit up. The italian has since passed. But he always sourced some good crabs I tell you. I don't know if his family carried on that line, if they know what's good they should.

    Um, no....:laughing-guffaw:

    Maryland crab cakes are often imitated, but seldom duplicated. ;)

    They're mass produced on an assembly line in Boulder, frozen, then CRE, Prime, and JCT truck them to Maryland. The jig is up.

    I don’t think I’d want to eat any of Colorado’s imitations. I might fail a drug test afterwards.:D

    So basically all those crab cakes in Maryland are warm water crabs from Lake Mead.

    There are hundreds of companies that will hire yo. Depends also on the type of freight you want to haul. Refer, dry, drop deck, flatbed, RGN (overdimensional), tanker, Pneumatic tanks, livestock, covered wagon, etc. You need to research, and possibly talk to other drivers for those companies to see how the pay is, benefits, hometime, etc. Do not be afraid to ask questions, even the most minor question needs attention.
    I have been a driver for now 27 years, and around this industry my entire life, like many of us on in these forums. Be smart and take the advice of those who have been through the many changes, and dealt with the good, and bad of this industry. As you are just beginning your career as an OTR driver. You will start at the bottom as it pertains to experience, and pay grade. This will last at least the first year of your career, stick it out and it will pay in the end. Also learn to budget your money. Many times a new driver will splurge on the newest technological devices, and so forth leaving themselves either short of money or broke.

    This can be a great career, if you listen to those with experience, and have been there and done that.
