    I live in Olympia, WA. I've read that Dynamic has lots of loads coming to the "NW," but there's a big difference between Eastern and Western WA.
    They're running to PDX and SEA, right? If so, is a driver allowed to run the hour/1.5 to get time off at "home?"
    What's the typically haul back, to where? If that load is going to the SE or East coast does Dynamic D/H trailers out of Granite City?
    I've been running LTL from SEA to CHI/DTW and back. Money is good, but the equipment is "marginal" at best. I'm tired of sleeping in the shops wait for my truck to be fixed, enroute.
    The Coke syrup and Sherman Williams hauls interest me... those coming out of StL back to the NW? I've had a HazM endorsement, but let it go long ago because where I worked for decades never used it. Would certainly get an X endorsement for .60cpm!

    If you work at dynamic what kinds of money are you bringing in a week? Can you gross at least 1500 a week?

    I live in Lacey. And I just started with them. As far as I know they don't mind if deadhead from pdx or eastern wa to home. But I'm only on my second load with these guys.

    Not in the main truck stop. Only if you rent a space long term in their Gertz Road lot IF they have spots for rent.

    Would they work with you if you’ve been stuck in an auto for the entirety of your 2 year driving career? Lol. I got my CDL on a 10 speed, but I’m out of practice.

    I been gone about 9 months. I left cause I wasn’t getting miles. I would run a load and sit 1-3 days. Usually 34ish hours. But to be fair to them, there was family issues going on and my dispatcher was the son. Couldn’t get ahold of him for 3 days. Then one day I got a messaging saying I had a new dispatcher and the son was no longer there.

    I’m not sure if the new dispatcher was lazy and didn’t care, or just had a really bad start and not picking up on things, but either way my bank account wouldn’t let me stay to find out and I had to leave after 6 weeks of crap for miles.

    When I first started it was great. I was probably averaging 3,200-3,300 miles a week. Just wish it could have stayed that way.
