    Can I ask what the pay checks look like for ya after training bigdogg? I have been a tow truck driver for about 7 years now so it's not like I am unemployed coming into trucking I am just trying to get that class A and some experience before I go back to local stuff. I just hope for all that time away from family you are taking home atleast 700 a week pretty quickly.

    I heard a lot of horror stories about how strict east coast Navy is. I was a Damage Controlman. Lol in 4 years I managed to get dragged through 3 West pacs a run to Alaska.. I got my golden shellback. The old way before anti hazing if you know what I mean.. Lol and did some time in dry dock all in 4 years.. But that was mostly because of 9/11

    Well if you do the 90dollars for 90 days "90/90" then you get 630 a week after my 90 days you run miles at 30 cents my first miles check was 1150 it should have been 975 ... But they paid me for some stuff from the prior week so as long as you keep them wheels turning you get the big bucks you also gotta prove your self to them before they hand you the big trips and priority loads witch equals good money $$$$$$

    Well that's not bad at all man. Especially starting out and in a brand new truck I'd say your doing pretty well... I am actually looking into May because I am interested in moving my family out of California and heading up north.. I had heard that freight isn't very good up there but I figure if the company is actually in Oregon it shouldn't be hard to get back there..

    east coast was fine for me, i was only on the Kanawha for about 9 months, and we were gone all that time during enduring freedom. and hello! its a USNS, had my own state room, shared the head with the person next door, like 20 military people on board, IT's, ET's, OS's and signalmen. our OIC was a warrant officer and then a chief. never working party's, we ordered food at meals like a restaurant, was awesome lol
