    That is when we schedule any major work to the truck and/or trailer if it will hang in there that long.

    Oh and where is the slowdown happening? We have been balls to the wall all winter this year.

    Where are you running? I'm slow. Not trying to steal your loads, just wondering what areas I should look

    What is a slow month? Even with a dry box, I haven't had a "slow" month in years. I have to take time off to have a "slow" month. I suppose it has a lot to do with the area one is running. I stay only in the Upper Midwest.
