    I was home pretty much every weekend with bones. I live in the Youngstown Ohio area. I pretty much ran the majority of the time erie pa to Wisconsin Wisconsin to Illinois Chicago back to Ohio. I would do 2 to 3 rounds a week but that was busting butt. I did take a few loads out to new jersey. I had a Mac trailer that i leased from Paul. Majority of loads that i hauled was coke, sand, fertilizer, grain, apples, landscaping stone. Baseball field dirt a couple times. Crushed class. No hazmat. I wish they would have gotten into the dirty dirts but they didn't seem interested in that. I did haul scrap a few times but not very often. They're very big on not rolling a trailer over. If you're not comfortable with how the load is being loaded, they'll make the shipper fix it. Especially on stone. If customer doesn't provide a level dumping area they'll tell you leave if you can't safely do it. If you think a product is going to damage your trailer they'll refuse to load. They have the drivers back on all this.

    Just thinking out loud, but are either of these companies good for Chicago? Meaning can they get you home on weekends?

    Yes they can get you home quite a bit in the Chicago area. Every weekend and during the week.

    I'm not with them anymore but what do you want to know? Besides being on elogs now their operation would be the same as when i was there. I still have communication with the bones family occasionally. Great company great family

    Ny daughter was acting up and i needed to be home daily. I live in eastern Ohio and their operation isn't setup for home every day. If i ever get to the point i can go back out on the road Paul will be my first phone call.
