    Just like we managed to live without electricity and indoor plumbing for five millennia… but that was then, and this is now.

    I remember having to stop at a pay phone to do check calls, get load info, & call home. I even had my own 800 number so it was cheaper to call home. Lol.

    That's all ok if everyone is playing by the same set of rules. It's all about competing on a level playing field.

    They also used speed to stay awake.

    What do you mean used to? Actually I never used speed itself but we were all on the cb back then so that helped.

    I was going to put cb also. But it was the speed that got trucks coast to coast. If Scottied wants to compare then to now, he has to admit they had advantages back then as well.

    That & keeping the left door closed. I used to run 3 Cali to Boston turns a month at 75 mph. I could still run that fast today if I wanted.

    Yes and fuel was way cheaper back then too. Now it costs way to much to runs those speeds and make a decent buck. Everyone wants the drivers dime.

    I do very good running 67-68 mph. That would be hard to do on a mileage pay plan but I'm make money running that fast.

    What if you leave landstar after after getting a new trailer. If you're still making payments on the trailer do you take the trailer with you,or do you turn it in to LCAPP?
