    I heard back from Travis Long on 14 Aug, got options as to when I'd start orientation, either August 31 in Georgia or September 21 in Indiana.or maybe later. Because I'd like to have some money in the bank before I head off to wherever they're gonna put me through orientation so I don't leave my wife high and dry until paychecks start rolling in.
     
    Rookie Driver Thanks this.

    Yup. Still with Dart. I like the company still. They keep me rolling. I did have some trailer issues last week but they payed me for all of my down time while I was at the shop with the trailers. Still not a fan of the Chicago area. That's where I am tonight. Dart has a shop in Bolingbrook that is fenced. Not much for truck stops in the area. There is one almost next door from here but they charge for the night and it looked packed as I went by.

    I never knew why?

    Sure appreciate your candor, RD...and all the updates. I've combed through the threads but couldn't tell whether or not you had leased or not. Curious how that's working out, if you did lease. Also, are you out of Mini Apples or Chi Town? Do you hump loads between those cities regularly? I'm near Chicago, flatbed dude, thinking about changing over to ### waggons, but looking for a decent company, maybe Dart. Thanks in advance for your thoughts about, home time, honesty from dispatch, quality of repairs, etc.

    There is a half decent Love's north of Chicago. A little out the way but better than most areas.
