There is a run I've done a couple of times that I love. Laredo, TX up to the North end of Utah and then to Idaho. For the first day and a half you are completely off the interstate ! From Ft. Srockton to Carlsbad NM is busy with oil field trucks but here have been times I didn't see anyone on the road between Laredo and Ft. Srockton,TX for 20 minutes in the middle of the day. There's lots of great local food along the trip too and if your through there at night you have to do a 30 minute break at one of the many picnic areas...the stars are amazing!

Interstate:

Commercial trade, business, movement of goods or money, or transportation from one state to another, regulated by the Federal Department Of Transportation (DOT).

I'll go anywhere, but prefer the "11 Western." Better scenery, and great miles. Kinda hard to beat a Washington to Florida run. (Florida needs apples too)

Seems that the L/O babies cry about the snow and turn down those loads in the winter, so us company guys are "stuck" with them. (Last summer was stuck east of the Rockies, but ran western all winter. Now I'm back east)

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

After 15 years on the road I wanted to help people understand the trucking industry and everything that came with the career and lifestyle of an over the road trucker. We'll help you make the right choices and prepare for a great start to your trucking career.
