    When I was there, I don’t think I ever took home less then 1k if I was working and didn’t take time off. I don’t think I ever sat around for a tank wash. The only places that seemed to make us wait a ton were dairy places. I just had an issue come up with them that made me leave. Otherwise i was pretty happy. Definitely miss the tanker work but I lucked into a nice local job.

    Dairy is the Devil. I've been lucky to avoid dairy loads a fair bit, but the last two made me swear off drinking milk in protest.

    Anyone else wondering what our new driver managers are supposed to do?.

    Got to do what you got to do. I personally still miss tootling around in the daycabs until they got rid of them in 2018ish. As far as tank washes go, that seems to be a fact of life up in Platteville. Sometimes there's clean tanks ready to rock and roll. Other times it's a wait while other outfits are also waiting on an empty tank. That said, I'm pretty much sticking around here until a local position in Albuquerque or Phoenix opens up. Keyword, long time:biggrin_2559:

    I am a couple months away from 1 year here. I *should* be able to crack $75K by the time I reach my 1 year anniversary.

    I might as well stick around if I can hit that considering how little you have to work here. I mounted a trailer mudflap today and it was the hardest physical labor I have done in a very long time.

    For sure. The more work you put in over here, the more you'll stack up those numbers. Was about to take another Garden City-to-Portales, but my cat and myself needed to get off the truck for a bit after five days cooped up in there.
