    Im in the same boat as you brother. I work local too and im thinking about going back OTR. 56 mile commute everyday each way gets old. Instead of Bynum I had Indian River or Heyl in mind.

    I talked with IRT. They were my original first choice but they were not going to accept three years local driving. Said I needed 2 years OTR experience . So they are off the board. But I hear now the IRT drivers are being grounded because of A dairy shortage. Bynum at first seems a distant third but this year they seemed to have improved and I have heard nothing but good steady freight for Heyl. Yeah my local commute isn't so bad. I just don't need a house in the burbs anymore and need to play catchup on retirement nest egg. And I think OTR can help me do that with a few other ideas while I'm out there with no bills

    You local guys that are looking at Heyl. Mind sharing what you grossed running local? I've always been OTR. Looks like Comic ran with Heyl all of 2015. Perhaps he could share his gross also. I ran with 2 different dry van outfits in 2015 with no gap and grossed $65k. We Florida guys try to look out for each other being how difficult it is down here.

    No doubt my brother! I'll be more than happy to. I drive local for STAR based in Plant City. Good Folks, we get paid $17.50 an hour no benefits or 401k long commute everyday living in Kissimmee.

    I drove for Bynum for about 2 months. Great people over there. You even get to meet the owner at orientation. I enjoyed my little bit of time with them but i had to get off the road because of a family sickness..

    I grossed 54K last year running local LTL . I prefer not to reveal my employer. Goodbenefits, 401k etc.... It used to be a great company to work for, now its mediocre at best. I like my job and the work and I know there is worse out there. IM not running away from them. I just want to go OTR for personal reasons and my company doesn't offer it.
