    I’m certainly not satisfied with rates lately, as a trucker. Must be I am out of practice negotiating.
    Guess I just enjoy being adversarial?

    You really have to know somebody to get your foot in the door on southbound loads out of PNW. Post your truck on DAT load board for available truck and just keep putting it up there. Generally you get calls from O/O's who don't have enough capacity to cover loads for a clients and they'll throw some loads your way. There is a huge shortage of available reefers right now in eastern WA, so if you have one, you should be able to keep busy. Hundreds of fruit loads come out of there every week, and they pay a lot better than the crappy rare loads that make it to a load boards.

    Reading this thread makes me want to park my flatbed and pick up a dry van. Rates are good in my area for open deck but certainly not as high as what I see posted here so often lately.
     
    SteveScott and Midwest Trucker Thank this.

    Another record breaking year for 2021 so far, tax wise I've already paid 12k in quarterly taxes, that won't even be half of what my overall tax due will be for 2021, this is where being married with 4+ kids comes in handy, I gotta find a single mother with 4 kids to marry before the year ends.
     
    PPDCT and dwells40 Thank this.
