    Ok, I wasn't sure where else to post this so I guess this location will have to do for now. I have a year and a half of trucking experience, I live in Washington State at the moment (and I say at the moment, because my mother likes to travel between Florida and Arizona...so lets just say mostly I reside on the west coast lol). I was working for Central Refrigerated, but had to leave because of family issues--my mother has a bad back, she lost the feeling in her legs but she's travelled to England (for now) to have it taken care of. This means that I'm ready to get back out there and make more money. Problem is, most local jobs here require at least 2 years of experience. I wouldn't mind doing something regional, but I would prefer over the road or regional for now because I love those long hauls. Ultimately, I'd love to just find something that will pay quite well. I cant go back to Central Refrigerated, because I leased a truck from them and had to leave it in the yard when I left in a hurry to get to my mom. They did say that they felt bad for me, and that it was a shame they couldn't take me back but those are the rules. (which I fully understand). I guess what I'm trying to say is: if anyone knows of a regional or over the road trucking company that pays quite well, I would greatly appreciate hearing from you. If any of you have any advice or words of wisdom, I'm open ears over here--I just want to get back into the game as soon as I possibly can.

    Have you looked at Gordon Trucking?? There are a lot of good options for you living out in that area. If you do not mind teaming, I would look into Lynden Transport as well. I saw you posting on the Melton thread. Check out Central Oregon Trucking Co if flatbed is what you want.

    I'm looking into western region trucking jobs at the moment, I have reefer experience already so I figured I might as well stick with that. Thank you for your suggestions though, I'll definitely look into those :)

    Do you have your HAZMAT? It says here for the Interstate west coast reefer regional, a HAZMAT is preferred.
    Also, do you run to Canada as well? or no? I have an American passport, which I could use to get over there.
    Thank you for telling me about Interstate, it seems like a good fit for what I'm looking for :)
