    I'm actually dropping this load in San Antonio.... I'm not a l/o, but my trainer was. He was doin really well. I've met a couple people who run the Texas regional. They seem to be happy. Flatbed has a lot of freight coming out of Texas so it should be easy to get home, but no guarantees

    The tests will be easier with a reefer, rather than a flat

    Does flatbed have a drop in freight in Jan and Feb like reefers? I'm taking a week off next month, but I think come March, I'll put in the paperwork to switch..

    What kind of money are you making as a company driver on average?

    You might want to ask someone that didn't just fall off a trainer truck.
