    As the title say's, I'm looking to move within the next year. Currently in Commiefornia, and looking at Idaho, Montana, or Northern Texas/Oklahoma. Thought I'd reach out to you fellow tanker yankers and maybe get an idea on job availability in any of these areas. I currently Have 7 months hauling milk tankers, no accidents, mountain/grade experience, and 4-5 times a week Los Angeles deliveries, so big city/heavy traffic. Appreciate any suggestions if anybody in those areas could recommend anything. It would hopefully be this summer, so I'll have over a year experience by then.
     
    Bud A. Thanks this.

    If you move to Oklahoma, after you get two years experience you could try Farmer's Oil out of Anthony, KS. Who knows, maybe they'll take you once you get a year and some change. I love their trucks.

    Milk hauling Idaho will bring up some hits. And yes, there is a Giltner tanker outfit based in Idaho. Probably a family offshoot of the reefer company of the same name.
     
    Twistin' throttles and Bud A. Thank this.
