    OK, you threw the bait out there for a reason. So I'll bite. What are the details?

    :biggrin_2559:I guess I can't say never because I never thought he'd be anywhere but Roehl so...

    There are days that we both miss it...Him because it does get boring going to the same 10 places all the time.. with the same product, loaded the same way, traveling the same route..you get the idea.
    I miss be able to go with him.
     
    Meltom Thanks this.

    Not bait, just the end of the story for us (and for anyone here that wondered how it ended)...The details are all in the 1st driver check in thread, but long story short after 9 years with Roehl, some good, the last few bad he took a new job with Advantage and it worked out for us.

    Yep very very few would ever break 60k with roehl. I never came close lol. Heck even leaseing a truck I didn't profit that.. close but didn't break it. I haul bulk tanker now out 2 weeks home 3 days even if I have to run 400 miles empty to get home I get paid those miles. Plus making 57k+

    But.... Roehl served its purpose they started me out here. Could have been a lot worse with a lot worse companies. Got my 18 months and moved on to real money

    That doesn't sound like a bad deal Eric, but for us the hometime would suck. That was one of the biggest complaints we had the last 2 years there, but now he's home every other night and every weekend so it works a whole lot better.
    We never made it over 60K with Roehl either....barely over 50K twice, but that was a few years back.
