    it happened to me once at JCT, I emptied out for hometime and they threw a load on me. I called and it was taken off real fast.. simple misunderstanding, it was after hours and my dispatcher was at home sipping a brew...

    I'm sorry but when I hear a Driver that says he has 10 yrs experience that has a problem with a Super 10, my mind says whaaaat? If you have 10 yrs experience you should be able to operate any Tranny out there. 13 speed, 18 double over, a set of stick (2 Trannies a main and a Brownie), 14 Speed Spicer or a simple Super 10. I always considered the Super 10 for beginner. But you'll have to excuse my ignorance I've been driving an 11 yard mixer for the passed 14 yrs. I dont even know what to say about the LP side of this thread. Oh wait yes I do. I cant believe that a person could LP a Truck and only take home 1200 - 1300 a week and figure all of the extra hassles of Payment, insurance, Maintenance, fuel and Tires etc. was worth it. I make more then that now. Home every night and weekend. The LP thing been there done that. Started with North American Van Lines, I think they are the originators of this scam. I called it the buy a truck get screwed give it back deal. You all have convinced me that when I retire in 7 years my plan to get back out on the road was an incredibly bad idea. Thank You.

    Thanx Dinomite. I toned it down for the Forum. I usually use more colorful language. My above post was in response to an earlier post back about page 9 or 10? Sorry should have used the "Reply with Quote". New here but I'll get it figured out.
    Dinomite Thanks this.

    Load planners do nothing wrong,always put the blame on the drivers.Did u keep in constant communication about your loads may be late?

    You don't get terminated just because you were late on a load. So explain your whole story and then maybe your story is more believable.

    With dry van ? Really ? Post some settlements ha ha . The highest paying freight that was ever on the board more than a second was maybe 2 bucks with an average of 1.50 which at 67 percent puts you at 1 to 1.30 a mile before your deadhead . I've never seen a new truck at landstar. I know a guy in Kentucky who sells used trucks to landstar drivers Only to flat and step deck drivers though last I checked because his van customers couldn't make the payments . I dropped out in 2011 whats changed since then clue me in.
