    Please forgive me if I sound ignorant or uninformed -- because basically, I am. DH is interested in applying to Superior and we're trying to decide if it might be a good fit for him.


    Everything you guys have discussed sounds pretty good. I see that they have a terminal in Springfield, MA -- we're in Southeast CT, so I think that's doable for him.


    I guess it all comes down to one single point. We have no problem with him being on the road and away from home throughout the week. But he MUST be home on weekends -- that's the ONLY time he has visitation with his kids.


    Do you believe this to be workable with Superior's requirements? If so, I'll get his application in right away. Otherwise, I'll keep looking -- your suggestions are welcome!


    Thanks in advance for your comments and advice.

    Your best bet would be to call the terminal manager in Springfield directly and ask him. Superiors policy is to dispatch you back towards the home terminal and home time has never been an issue for me. I generally wind up with over 100 full days off per year but they are not always on the weekend. I define a day off as 24 hours at home.

    Was Monica and her dog Lola there? I used to go there a few times a week when I worked out of our Commerce terminal. She is a fun girl. We used to play gin while they washed my trailer and she still owes me $21.00. I worked her every time.

    Are you talking about the girl in the office at LA Tank Wash? I haven't stayed in the office long enough to learn her name.

    The next time you get to LA Wash, send me a note. I will take you out to eat. I'm done by 3pm every day. I will even tell Monica to go with us.

    Will do. I may be there on the 2nd. Delivering in San Bernardino that morning. If they don't deadhead me out that is where we wash out.

    Thanks a bunch, wsyrob !!! You have been so very helpful, and I truly appreciate the time and effort you've taken to answer my questions.


    I'll pass this on --I'm sure B will contact Springfield first thing Monday.

    Ended up deadheading over to sulphur and loading for Burlington, ON to deliver Thursday. No complaints, I've been wanting some all dressed flavor potato chips lately.
