    haha...it just might be. 2 months as a ranking member of the flat arse society and WS is looking pretty good to me right now.
    I don't think I could ever retire. The boredom would kill me within weeks.:biggrin_25518:

    If you wanna go back OTR, you know you can do better. Most of the major carriers are better it seems.

    Most major carriers pay like 40 cpm for solo drivers and have the miles.

    The 2 husband & wife teams I know bailed on W&S and came over to USX. Their making 50 cpm & making good $,$$$.

    I've never been bored enough to watch a video log of of a driver rambling...

    What's "making money"?

    Plenty of guys making 30K at Swift feeling blessed to be the richest guy in their dumpy town.

    Drove for wksh for two months.. good starter company. Wages are low. Lots more freedom than other companies. I would work for them again in a pinch. But I'm in oilfield now where the wages are multiples of what any one could ever make at wksh......shoutout to conover... hope u guys r doin alright.

    Saw a wksh truck at the hwy2/85 intersection the other day as I was headed to watford city... didn't know u guys had any customers here... makes me sad... would have stayed if they would have run me west.
