    I pretty much stay in the same area…..anywhere outside of there I consider a bad area lol

    I tend not to go further south than mobile AL….no further west than nashville and no further north than NJ……. although I am going to up near green bay next weekend but, only because its paying 5.50 a mile… :)

    And at that rate you could run it round trip and still make decent money if you knew there was nothing coming out....

    Bobtail/Unladen is 21.38/week, BCC/work comp is $31.38/week. Prepass $2.50, load alerts $3.69/week

    Monthly physical damage about $115(?), and Fuel tax reporting $4 - EOBR $28 or something/ monthly.

    It's all detailed in orientation, you just have to pay attention, it's a big chunk of information at once.

    Based on drivers I speak with here…some do very well and then you have others who don't do so well….but like someone said your either happy here or your not…..

    I found the recruiters little help .

    Here's my thread from the start, there's a lot of startup info in there with LS -

    http://www.thetruckersreport.com/truckingindustryforum/posts/5247743/

    A few LS guys contributed to the info. Scroll back to the first 15 or so pages.

    Oh, they will - mine drug it out to the last minute. They're required to report within a timeframe, 30 days I think. I came to learn it wasn't LS , just regulatory procedure and burden, privacy etc.
