    BTW, if I ever decided to go back OTR, Poly would be my first and only choice.

    Poly sounds good but I couldn’t resist... took an OTR job by the hour.

    Well finally got my reprimand for being a naughty boy on my logs. It was a good run while it lasted . Unloading in Fridley, MN tomorrow afternoon and then making the western trek along the northern border of ND and Mt for a delivery in Kalispell, Mt and then down into Oregon for a couple of deliveries ending in Klamath falls so should be a beautiful trip if the weather holds out.

    Those numbers look great. Looks like you’ll get a giant tax refund too.
    I don’t the way they do the per diem thing but i guess the rest they offer makes up for it.

    Haha, pretty much whatever could be taken advantage of was. Their primary concern was using the off duty driving to maximum benefit . Said it showed up distinctly when used but DOT would never had a chance to look at that because I would have just given them my paper logs I always keep. Was going to follow all the guidelines once it went into affect for everyone but fell a couple of weeks short. I hate the ####ers, more stress, less money and just ####s up the way I like to run on the back roads but just going to have to suck it up I suppose until I can finagle a way out of trucking.

    What's up guys? Just read the last few pages. Looks like it's status quo at Poly. I'm doing well at Landstar. Had a really solid year with the rates being up.
    Wishing everyone a Merry CHRISTmas and a Happy Prosperous New Year.
     
    majestyk, tucker and chemster Thank this.

    That’s with 16 years experience and all my endorsements but only pulling reefers and dry van. Now the boss is putting me on a plane to SC to recover a tractor and trailer. Being trusted with such a task would make any driver feel good. Wish all companies showed respect.
