    I have been Doing alot of reading on all the forums u guys have been directing everbody to alot of good info but i am new to the forums and need some help and advice. My dad and i are o/o and looking for some info. We have tank trailers that are aluminum we haul alot of fertilizer over here. They have 13hp honda motors and 3 inch pumps. I guess what i want help with is what kind of work can we get over there? and if we head over how long to find work for us and our trucks? We here about these oilfield hour of service and we want to run under those rules but it looks like we have to lease on with someone which is fine we would just like to get some opinions and info. I have many questions but it would take me all day to write it out so all advice is appreciated. i will ask more questions as this goes on.

    thanks so much for any advice in advance

    Donger, why not jump in as a company driver first? That way you can find out for sure who are the good outfits and you can make some good contacts while you are driving.
     
    Big Duker Thanks this.

    I cannot imagine anyone getting decent sleep in the sleeper while being hauled around these lease roads. Maybe with drugs. But that's not quality sleep.

    I am very new to this forum with absolutely no experience in the oil fields. I live in Washington state and am thinking about going to work as a driver in the oil fields this winter. I plan on going home during my time off. Can anyone give any advice on the best way to do it? All I know to do is go to the airport, buy a ticket, and get home. Are there financially better ways to go about it? Any help in this area would be greatly appreciated.

    I wouldn't think you would have more than 48 hrs at a time off very often. Might check out the guy who was out of WA state. He might be able to help you.

    What kind of experience DO you have Asphalt Warrior? There are some owner operator/small fleet owners that let their drivers work any schedule that keeps the truck rolling. 2 weeks off and 2 weeks on is a good schedule for a pair of drivers. Do you have any winch truck operating experience?
     
    Asphalt Warrior Thanks this.
