    It can't be THAT bad....... :biggrin_25521:

    You'd have been long gone from watching here, if it was really that bad. :biggrin_25520:

    You just stick for the entertainment, no doubt.....completely understandable!

    But, PSTD....... Muh, ha ha ha! :biggrin_25523:

    Then again, may have something with that........

    Strangely, the shakes just started hitting me outta the blue just now, for no reason at all.....

    I thought tankers were North East only with Prime? You indicated that isn't so? Can you explain the tanker division to me? Where else they run?
    Prime could make a killing in Houston.
    FullMetalJacket Thanks this.

    Can't say I am very knowledgeable at all on the tanker side. So small I have only met a small portion on that side.

    But, when I started, they had reef, flat & tankers training out of at least SpringMo & Pittston. Sure Salt Lake was no different. Likely depends on home terminals of instructors/trainers. I have never heard of them being restricted to Pittston. Maybe moreso there, but still see them at SpringMo on pad, rare times I go through.

    Where they run most & have the most busines...... I cannot say. I'm sure NE is busiest, just as with any freight we haul. Most population, ya know...

    I CAN say I have passed (Don't tell anybody, eh..? ) our tankers in nearly all of the lower 48. Out west, SW, SE, NE.... pretty much everywhere. I have been to our tanker terminal in IN several times.

    Never paid attention to what was more prevalent, but they DO run most everywhere, at least at times.

    Sorry, but all I can give you on that.

    WesternPlains Thanks this.

    Only somewhat related....

    Prime Driver Trainee requirements states:

    No suspensions for points last 3 years.

    I had an "Administrative suspension" due to late payment of a fine for an expired plate.
    My reinstatement date was 10/19/2017
    Original suspension date was 06/13/2016

    Am i on holding pattern till Oct 2020??
