Taxidriver is right but has not been here for a while. I don't disagree w/ anything she's ever wrote on here. I am still doing interstate (out 14 days) for OIX- now ORTRAN. It is forced dispatch but my boss will try to get someone somewhere they want to go, if OIX goes there, when they are in the right place at a time that he can do it. Like most people, I would prefer the paper log but other than that it's the best of the total of 7 OTR companies I've worked for (counting OIX). About the only thing they demand is on-time p/u and delivery or calling/messaging ASAP if something will prevent being on time. I did 2 Maine, some Mass (not Boston), a couple CT, and PA last Winter but the places were no problem. Now the only N.E. I get is PA. I believe we don't do NYC. I haven't done NYC and other guys say they wouldn't go. We leave KC or home and stay out 14 days then take 3 or 4 days off. Some people stay out longer because they want to do so. At least 1 guy is homeless except for his truck. There are only 2 teams. My experience is that one could make more money SOMETIMES if they stayed out longer than 14 days but it would take good communication w/ their boss to make that extra money because sometimes they plan 2 or 3 days in advance and all Sat/Sun work is planned by Fri night. All trucks are T660 midroof single bunk unless 2 teams have double bunks. Fridge is built-in w/ small freezer. No APUs so we idle for air, use Espar in winter, built-in inverter, idle-air paid by co. in few places that have it, and motel now if no idle-air for a 34 hour or more break. Layover is $150 and is very rare but I got it July 4. Some people say they don't get enough miles but for 6 months I've been satisfied almost every week and I don't always get to receivers as soon as possible so I may have missed out on getting the maximum possible mileage.
