    No one wants to admit...That that cheap backhaul ....That you are taking is someone's freight...And It should be your freight too....

    A wise man told me ...Back when I was still young..."If You Can't Do It And Make Money... You Can't Do It"!

    We have 2 days every year that trucks dont run. December 24/25 I never see panic in the streets December 26th.

    BTW, you better get all the railroads to go along with this since most freight is on rail now.

    Talked to a guy the other day out in Aurora, CO that when in training at CR England, that the ride along with a trainer was $.11 cpm. However, you may hop out after two weeks to lease a truck from them to make the big bucks. He instead went to Schneider.
