    The hours one runs may have an bearing on that as well, due to the times truck stops tend to fill up.

    Well, if you’re done by 2:00 pm, parking is still easy to find, right?

    ...As opposed to rolling into a truck stop well after that expecting to be able to shut down for the night and finding you can’t because there’s no room, compounded by the elog issue of having no more wiggle room to try and make it somewhere else.

    The whole issue with this is a dead horse that I am not interested in beating again.

    6 months with them now and I have no desire to look elsewhere. There have been issues from time to time, it has not been perfect. However, I have been learning and earning more here than anywhere else in the last 15 years.
    A small carrier that has doubled in size since I started, but as a team we are managing the growth.
    I will not recommend it to anyone new to the O/O business. I will gladly help an experienced O/O or fleet owner get acclimated to Rawhide Express.
