    Saia just got a lot of freight diverted from harrisburg to the maybrook yard. They have a really good sign on bonus but I don't know if I can do nights it's hard to get used to. P&d still pays pretty good around 32 an hour

    I guess too many trucking terminals not enough drivers over here in maybrook, Newburgh area. That's why starting at top pay plus sign on bonuses for pnd

    Don't even think about doing linehaul if you were a "solo powered truck" when you were OTR. There's no shame in it. Some people just can't do nights. It's definitely not natural. Then you also have the issue of how to do your schedule on the weekends. Linehaul work personally suits me but I'm not an evangelist about it. It's not for everybody.

    Probably not much difference in pay p&d starts at top rate and overtime after 45 hours

    Better double check the overtime part for R&L
