    Nope, your $380/week beats a lot of OTR... collect until you find a real job!

    We haven't seen any slow down here in Big Lake. With the exception on the weather the last few nights, we have been staying busy and having to have trucks from other yards come help us out.

    I heard a Houston outfit that builds and maintains man camps just laid off 30% of their workforce...

    Its going to be a tough new year in the oil patch.
