    Yea, but there's a (I think), $1500 pet deposit and I don't know if its refundable or not. Call and talk to a recruiter on that to be sure is my best advice.

    Yea got my home time, and am now in New York, yay!! These bridges we have to go under that are marked 11 foot and change freak me out! I'm about an hour outside Chester, NY ATM and taking my time in the mountains. Word on the street is that over 100 drivers have left give or take in the past week, that's why there is no parking at the Olathe yard and so many trucks lined up behind the shop. No idea the truth of that, you know how rumors fly even across the country. I've decided I need a new CB, this one is either crazy underpowered or I'm doing it wrong. I can barely hear anyone unless their next to me with their window down and noone has ever responded to me, like I'm not broadcasting. Who knows. Oh well, time to do my PTI and get back on the road. Be safe guys.

    I was in 1 day talking to the lady who does all the paperwork for that and she said they'll have anywhere from 30 to 100 people a week quit them. TA doesn't mind tho, since turnover is what they've built their business model on.
    Came off of HT, did 600 + miles, then got a reset in. Had to have a PM and all that good stuff.
    Looks like we're going to oppisite ends here. On a 3drop run to commiefornia.

    Oh I'm doing all right. In Fort Worth, TX about to run Coke to Denver. After that I'm heading back home for 2 days. I've still been running pretty good, from Denver to New York, then to Dallas and now back to Denver in one week. My dispatcher is gone, either quit or was fired two days ago. Kinda sucks, NOONE I talked to liked him even a little, I didn't care for him much myself, but he kept me moving. I'll have to wait and see how it'll effect me and who I'll get as a replacement. Got a new radio pit in the truck because mine was acting wierd and now my CB isn't turning on lol, one thing or another I swear. Be safe.
