    Daaamn dude. You just pissed off every Conway/CFI, Werner, JB Hunt, and Schneider driver in the forum LMAO.

    Your 2 month total, is more than any 2 months at their monthly fleet average for the past 4 years. Including the good times LOL

    Hell, with your last year milage. They would be eligible for a month off. And not miss it. This year, they could take 2 months :biggrin_25525:

    I'm working on my one month of time off at this very moment, unfortunately it is coming at the pace of one layover day at a time. Actually, this time around it's just short of 3 days sitting in a Texas truckstop waiting to pickup a Monday morning load going a whopping 135 miles. Good Grief!:biggrin_2553:

    There was a husband/wife US Express team that was at our warehouse Friday evening getting loaded that I felt sorry for. The husband was telling me they (team) had only 850 miles since last Sunday. That's awful for a solo driver let alone a team!

    They were happy to get the load we had for them, going from western NC to San Pedro, CA.

    I am in my first week at koch and have gotten 3000 miles this week
    if there is a shortage of miles, my dispatcher forgot to tell me
    however with that said, if my last employer were to start hiring again, I would go back in less than a heartbeat. i really enjoyed that $21 an hour, 70+ hours a week, paid to sleep in the truck when needed and home most nights
    but unfortunatly the oilfield is as dead as my sex life

    From what I see on the load board over here at Schneider the way to go is local stuff. Who cares about the miles when you can drop 2-3 loads a day and make $1000 as a o/o. Yeah the local stuff takes some skill to pull off sometimes, but man when it all works the stuff really pays.

    Got to love the people that come into a thread about not getting miles, only to gloat about how good they have it. There are other threads for that, so please move along.

    This was the question in the opening post.

    "what company is getting at least 2000+????"

    Sounds like they were simply answering that question.

    I'm an hourly local/regional container hauler here in Dallas and freight has never been slower than it is right now. So far for the week I've got a whopping 12 hours, just one run to about 50 miles north of OKC. Got another going to OKC tomorrow so I'll maybe get another 10 hours if I drag my feet enough.
    It's not looking good right now but the freight is on boats heading this way from China, so only a few more weeks and hopefully it will pick up on the container side of stuff at least.
    Lots of O/O's have called it quits past month or so around here. I didn't see how they could do it, the rail yards are empty of loads. I've never seen so many empty containers and chassis sitting.
