Yup! There’s a couple fuel hauling jobs in Ventura County that are the only jobs in-line with OD as far as pay. However, they work 2-3 weekends a month, and the hours are such that you have no life no matter what you do. Tough job, and I’m glad there are guys who want to do it, but I’ll pass.
I do a turn at RTO every night, and yeah, the dock is quiet! I talk more with the guys at IRC, and it’s been the same story; bunch of them got their CDL’s in-house, and were excited about driving, but now they’re back to mostly dock hours.
My nights have been fairly consistent. You probably know Danny at RTO. He’s been on it as far as keeping me busy. I’ve been sent up to Santa Maria a couple times now, so they max me out as much as they can. Overall, even with it being slow, I’m making more here than I have anywhere else, so I’m not complaining.
