    I thought you picked that up near Jacksonville? Either way it was a nice load.

    Crete was good getting me both in and out of Florida. Too early to tell with Shaffer. Only been home twice so far. Florida drivers are required 21 days out. Then can take 4 days off.

    Florida drivers need to ask recruiting about truck location for hometime. I've heard some of the South Florida drivers have to leave the truck in Deland.

    This is not criticism just an observation. Under the current pay scale you would basically make the same at Crete that you are at Shaffer. Crete pays .03 less a mile but you averaged almost 200 more miles a week. What went wrong at Crete? If it was a personal issue then I don't need to know. I Only ask because I'm considering Crete.

    Also I'm curious, looking at all of your loads you haven't really run that long(1500+ miles) except for a couple. How would you compare your avg length of haul to Crete, about the same or a little better?

    Thanks!
