    Don't have my cdl yet, but I'm looking to get it soon and looking at Schneider. They don't seem to have the regional tanker position open anymore so I'm looking at otr. I'm in the Jacksonville, FL area.

    They say they get you home every other week. Can someone explain to me what exactly that means?
    Also do they still do only 5 days with the trainer? I also saw a regional position they had. But it also says every other week. Whats up with that.

    Is Schneider paying for your school?
    There's plenty of local jobs around Jacksonville if you want more home time, but they don't have their own cdl school.

    Going home costs you a day off to get unloaded, part of day two to race home with the 18 wheeler going to the yard on your way home.

    Day three is spent resting away from your family until you are sufficiently revert to being human again to greet everyone. Day four is when your wife has a list of honey do jobs while the kids play when you are trying to sleep for day 5.

    The dispatchers start calling day three. telling you that you have had three days off per computer are you ready to take this load tonight and leave out for delivery (On what would be your home on day 5.)

    How do you seem to so quickly and easily find trucking companies in any city anyone can mention? Is it a hidden resource, like a database, somewhere on the Internet, of all trucking companies within a certain mile radius of a zip code, or something like that? Is there a list that can be obtained of every trucking company in America, including one man operations who are required by law to be registered with the DOT as having authority to operate?

    Also, I logged on today after several weeks of not being logged on, thinking I could find previous posts and responses from my list of alerts. It seems that alerts disappear after a certain period of time, so they're gone.

    You were talking about how Nevada is a federal income tax free state, and posted a pic of a small apt. complex, suggesting that a driver could buy something like it and rent to other drivers who are also needing a place to list as their home for tax purposes. I was meaning to ask if the photo was an actual place that you own, or just some random pic you had? I can't find it now. I ask because I may want to move to Vegas, even without a driving job, and rent if it's cheap rent. I vaguely remember reading about how some casinos have their own concrete slab 'RV parks' on premises for their (short term?) customers, some even with water, sewer, and electric hookups, but I don't have a RV yet. Nor do I know how one proves they are a customer of that casino, spending the minimum amount of money required to get to park an RV there. I haven't researched it further to know which casinos have that or how much they charge, but I suspect there aren't many, and it's not available to just anyone with an RV, or else the slab would turn into a mobile home park or someplace like a Walmart that lets anyone camp out there.

    It's a drag to require an actual physical address in order to apply for a job. P.O. Boxes and private mail pickup locations don't work. It's easy to say, 'just put down the address of a friend' but I don't know anyone who wants my mail landing in their mailbox, much less having to be sorted and shipped to wherever I really am, and such persons wouldn't live in a city I'd be moving to anyway.

    That cheap condo still shows on the website. No, it's not mine. I do own two homes in Las Vegas/Henderson and both are in HOA's and aren't for rent. I live in one and my sister-in-law and her family live in the other.
    That cheap condo you mentioned is still showing.
    www.propertyvegas.com and click on "Distressed fixer upper" and it should show.
    I've seen as many as a dozen of those cheap ones listed before and were "for sale by owner", so I don't know the deal on that. They looked like motels that were converted to condo's , then sold off one by one. That's pretty common in Las Vegas and Reno.
