    I can get runs close to Bama. I dont normally get runs into Bama, but I dont go back to the house much neither. (By choice) Prime doesnt have dedicated much. We do have a dedicated account for Cat out of Wamego Kansas. Only regional Flatbed has is Texas Regional. I run in the Flatbed Division, thats what I know the most about. Til I switched we didnt have any flatbedders on the board...

    No worse than sections of any of the interstates. Or the entire LA metro area. What's the matter, can't deal?

    Not my favorite place, but hey! It's a local job.

    You really think that they intentionally station 20% of the fleet in an area that always has a high truck to load ratio?

    Sorry... never been dispatched out of Pittston.

    That's generally the case across the system.

    Only if you live up this way. BC, I don't have a problem with you - you don't like Prime, that's obvious. I don't have a problem pulling freight for them - I could care less if people don't like the company. I do care when they intentionally start spreading false information around, and I'll call anyone out on that. I do have a problem with people who have a rather excellent opinion of themselves as truckers, but can't deal with the job. Driving in the northeast is just part of the mix, as is dealing with I95. My personal solution to I95 is to avoid certain sections of it.

    Just because someone asks a question doesn't mean any one of us has to answer it in its entirety. As to the other post you seem to have a problem with, I was trying to provoke a little discussion on another subject. I said nothing about anyone's negative opinion on Prime. But if you want to debate the subject, feel free to start a "Bad Company" thread. Have at it, and enjoy.

    And by the way, I don't appreciate people who spread lies about me. I don't "recruit," and have never tried to.
