    Right before covid19 I did a 23 and me DNA kit at home looking for my dad I never knew.
    I did this with the mind set that I didn't have any faith that it would find anything.
    Well it did. I found 120 relatives including my dad, living in Maine.
    Then covid hit and Maine shut her down.
    I could go but would of been quarantined for two weeks couldn't afford that so I waited patiently. Now Maine is open and here's the kicker.
    My current company told me they would send me to Maine no problem, they even acted excited that I found my dad, but when the time came for them to deliver, they told me no Maine we never told you that.
    So now I'm looking for a company that does otr to Maine preferably on a regular bases
    I know Schneider does but as I understood it they don't have roder policy and they are governed at slow speeds . I think their a good company I have to take my wife with me on this journey.
    I know Crete does, but I have worked with them in the past, and I can go back,but their trucks are really run down and they don't have prepass.
    So I'm looking .amy one got some good ideas?
    I live in Arkansas but Texas and Florida are my other places I would not mind being out of.

    Super easy to get a load in to Boston. You're just down the road. Rent a car from there.

    Maine and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan are the only 2 parts of the 48 that I have never been to as a driver.

    Tough places to get to.

    I’d just take a few days off and fly and rent a car or drive , depending on the distance.

    have you met any of the people yet ?
    And have they invited you to come visit ?

    May not apply to your situation but I've done an H&M bay ltl reefer load that goes from Indiana to Maine. H&M seems run mostly by o/o and small companies and not sure how you'd find a company but that would be an every week thing.
