    Going to orientation in Spokane on Jan 6th, just wondering on miles on OTR division. I know it's slower in the winter months but any info on average miles per week ( lowest/ highest) I didn't even bother asking my recruiter I prefer a drivers input. Thanks.

    So your going on the system side? I have been here for 3 months now and I'm averaging around 2800 a week. I'm on the pole fleet though, not sure what regular otr is doing. Been pretty impressed with their efficiency and how they keep me running.
    Your coming from Watkins right? I just left there myself. It has been an excellent change for me.

    Never mind on Watkins, for some reason I thought I recognized your name from one of the Watkins threads

    I don't drive for Watkins , I did comment on some flatbed pictures you posted. Maybe that's where you recognize my name. I decided to do OTR flatbed because that's what I've done in the past. They did mention the pole fleet but I don't know that I'd want to drive a cabover. Or do they have conventional rigs ? 2800 miles is good. I need to average 2250 to be ok with it. I know there is going to be weeks that suck I just need to keep busy. Thanks for you're response MT

    They actually sold the rest of the cabovers, I'm in a brand new kw t800. If you can do the pole fleet that's where to be. The dispatcher for us is by far the best one ive worked with

    I'll ask for more info on Monday. I just assumed that it was all cab overs and didn't ask for any info Thanks. The one negative about going with system is not bringing the truck home.

    When I was on the OTR fleet I was getting 2800-3000 regularly. I never take a 34 unless I am on hometime. I have been here since November 2012 and haven't stopped moving. possibly considering going to the twt side yet but not sure that I wanna make that leap
     
    jomar68 Thanks this.
