    You heard right. Freight slows down for the industry, but the flatbed does seem to slow a bit more. They are phasing out the Mack's and putting drivers in new Internationals. I got a brand new International. My Mack midriff had more room, but there are features I like about this truck too. My number is still the same. I'll probably die with it. lol

    Depends on the distance from your house to the delivery distinction. Often times you'll leave on Sunday, but at times you'll have a Monday departure. I'm home Fridays and leave on Sundays (my norm) mainly due to where I live. BFE! lol

    But at the same time since I live right on 40/85 in NC it not unusual for me to be home 2 nights a week sometimes

    That is great; I'm a bit jealous, but it is what it is.
