    I leave for flatbed orientation with Western express this Saturday. On your road test, was it automatic or manual? Also did you have to do backing & the pre trip? Just want to know so I can be on point when I get there

    OTR flatbed is all 48 states. We have hauled steel, rock tiles and shelving units for Home Depot. Waiting on a load of more metal now. Copper I think. Been from Indiana to Chicago to San Diego to Orange CA to Phoenix. Now in Tucson AZ.

    What? Are you saying Western doesn't care if you know how to do a proper pre-trip or not?
    Also; it's been nearly 6 weeks since we've seen hide nor hair of you on these boards there @Braydinsdad you still out there?
