    Milk tanker company in Phoenix hiring drivers on Craigslist, I see milk tankers from PHX way out near San Diego , not sure if it's same company, there's a surprising amount of ag work in that part of AZ. Also a lot of construction going on west of town in the Bumstead/ El Mirage area, big corporate buildings and roads. Lots of center dumps and heavy equipment moving around out there, it's a lot like there's no plague going on.

    Some of the other drivers in AZ were likely in NY at one time. This, of all times.is a time to move to the work if you have to. Have done it myself, change is good.

    No. I would’ve had time to do a few though. I had those all done in 4 1/2 hours, first one to last one.

    Today I had a few less, but they went slower.

    Peddle freight is really just another term for ltl freight, lots of small stuff going different places.

    22 stops is a lot, depending on the company, sometimes you could have less stops with more pallets/pieces per stop.

    14 trailers of city freight sitting in our yard with no drivers to pull them. Two of our linehaul guys got reinstated and word on the street has it that us 7 city guys will come back in a week or two.

    I am optimistic.
