    I like running west coast so my dm tried to keep me out west didnt always work out but he tried. Pretty good starting company. I have only been here 7 months now and am in a brand new Volvo vnl 760. If that tell you anything but I run hard and stay out 4 weeks at a time most of the time

    That's what I suspected. Sometimes I wonder how folks get ideas in their head.

    @Tony850 I'm considering Knight's CDL training program. I'm doing some some research and Knight is one of the companies that I think might be good fit for me. I'm in Idaho and I would most likely be pulling reefer out of the Idaho Falls terminal. I like the idea of pulling for the reefer division because it has a longer average length of haul than the other divisions at Knight. If I did well after going solo and did things like showed my DM that I am reliable, that I can manage my clock well, and that I am willing to run hard; how many miles a week could I reasonably expect to get?

    On average if you run consistently honestly around 2200-2800 but there are weeks that are better and some not so good. Good starting company it realy all comes down to what Dm you get and if they keep you preplanned for next load

    Knight does not pay. Get your your learning in then get out of there quickly.
    Everything is your fault there , bad bad place. Almost as bad as Werner.
