    I think I've done pretty well so far. Man I went from a run making 100k base down to one making 84K base IF IT RUNS CONSISTENTLY. I was working 6 or 7 days at time to keep up. Now I got a day run paying a couple grand more than the old one so I'm happy.

    The good thing about it is, I live a nice life and all that's extra. I can survive and be ok off 60K gross. No kids... No wife.:)

    Well so Estes is now the 3rd largest LTL company they were for all intents and purposes the same size as Yellow and I think Yellow had been losing business to them for years.

    They started back up the little bonus pay program at Estes for extra days again. Pays $100 to work a 6th day. I may start taking advantage of it again since I don't have anything else to do on weekends.
