Maybe it's just me, but I've never enjoyed talking to someone who is sleeping. smile.gif

As for more miles, how do you plan to get around that seventy hour rule? I don't know any team drivers who turn more miles than I do as a solo driver.

Superlejera, what goals do you have for driving that you're considering driving team and pulling a tanker? Describe your dream job and we can give you some ideas.

It seems you're having a tough time finding a place to settle in with. You've already had at least two jobs in your short career and it seems you're looking for a third now?

Fill us in on your situation a little bit and maybe we can help you find what you're looking for.

So you're already in Prime's tanker division but you want to start running team? You said for "more miles and someone to talk to" but my guess would be the "more miles" thing really isn't the concern, am I right? Because you're not going to get paid for the miles the other person is driving anyhow. So really you'd like to have someone along for the ride.

Nothing wrong with that if that's the case. Have you spoken to Prime about finding a partner for you? I mean, it's going to be on a trial and error basis. You won't really know if you're going to get along until you get out there and run for a while. But I would guess Prime would be the best source of a partner for you.

I run teams off and on in short stints. I shower all the time running solo but when I run teams I find it harder to find the time to stop. Maybe it's my go go go attitude which causes this and the lack of a 10 hour stationery rest break but just thought I'd throw it out there since you quit Werner for that reason.
