    Ran into a O/O with authority at a receiver that hauled a load for 79cpm! He wasn’t directly talking to me but I jumped in the conversation and asked if he ran his truck off air. It was one of those overseas truckers with several zip ties. With people stealing freight for that price it makes me really not favor the idea of becoming a O/O.

    Welp, Its what its become- Very Few of us American Drivers left running freight otr as an independent.

    Thank God I dont have to compete with them very often- But....They Work Cheap-And Work Hard- Its a shame they cant communicate with us- I tell em all the time- Turn your Radios on and talk- Were not gonna bite your head off.
