    I agree I’ve only been driving a year and a half and it’s only been containers so I can be close to home fact of the matter is containers just don’t pay well I’ll make 1300 here and there but for the most part 1000 bucks is the average granted I don’t have my own truck that’s driving for someone else.

    Don’t know about that one but if so you will probably have to travel possibly across country somewhere where the work is really good! There were so many people getting in to that when fracking become really popular that it’s probaly a hard gig to get in to but I really don’t know much about it! Go to the tanker forum and they have folks that can tell you exactly what’s up with it and where!
