    What areas do you run?Do you run any dedicated or regional? They have several options as to what I want to do.

    I wondered how long you had been their.On the otr you are doing ,are you out 10-14 days or longer?Are they keeping you busy.That's what I worry about not staying busy.I want to run.I do not have to be home weekly.

    I hope you fined a team mate,that would be some good money to make.

    I appreciate the info.Recruiter said that they had scanners in the trucks for paper work.Are you driving an automatic truck?

    The cascadias have Apus,I asked for an auto,they have less mileage,if you go manual,your likely to get a truck with 400-500 k mileage.
    Teams get new trucks.
    My 680 had 300k when I got it.

    $1,000 a week is good money, not bad at all.
    Is there per diem? If so, is it mandatory? How much, (cents per mile), is the per diem?

    How often do you get paid, every week or every two weeks?
    Does Transport America have direct deposit for their drivers?

    God bless every American and their families! God bless the U.S.A.!
