    I don't think that's a real load board blair posted.

    I'm telling you man. You will wind up in snow up to the tops of the mirrors, living in your truck, with your cat.

    Don't say you weren't warned when you find yourself at a terminal hoping to get a plate of leftovers from the lunchroom.

    @blairandgretchen I do agree the Land star rates are high right now. My last two checks w-2d. Where the highest I've made in the 4.75 years I've been otr.
    But I'm not getting my hopes up. As soon as I get the title I'm sure they will correct them selves, leaving me over leveraged and over worked. Or maybe they will hang out a bit longer and wait till I have a break down

    I don't see how you guys can do it. I usually skip over most of these threads. It's pretty obvious that you can do well with most companies. We got guys from Mercer, Landstar, Schnieder, and a few others who have been with them for years.

    It comes down to the person and how they want to work it. Have a plan, be ready to change plan, act like every penny is mana from heaven.

    I have talked to two drivers this past week that work at the same company as myself. They were complaining about how they weren't making any money. I asked how they were running and had to shake my head.

    So true. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve saw someone walk right past a penny, nickel, whatever and just act like it’s trash.

    When I was a kid I always found change, always picked it up, and saved it.

    It doesn’t matter how much money I have one day, I will ALWAYS pick up even a penny. The day I don’t, in my mind I won’t be appreciative or worthy of the money I do have.

    Just how I see things.
