Run it or wait it out?

I'd like to hear how others would approach this. Do you run in these conditions? What factors play into your decision?

Let's talk about it.

I would not run. The risk out weighs the gain.

EW Wylie or Halvor

Hello all, I haven’t posted for a while but wanted to check if any one had any thoughts about driving for EW Wylie or Halvor? I’ve been an Owner/Operator for just about two years, and I’m looking to switch back to company driving. Thanks

I Think It's Time to Move On

I'm exhausted and it's not the work, it's the lack there of. I don't move for 12-14 hours a day so I'm not using any energy and then I have trouble sleeping because I'm not tired. I'm also gaining weight at a rate that I feel isn't healthy. In the last 7 months I've gained 30-40 pounds.

Can I remove the manual transmission restriction on my CDL

This is merely the process of removing a restriction from your current CDL. I can't see a learner's permit being required for that.

The only time a learners permit would be required is if you are going from a class B to a class A.

Can I remove the manual transmission restriction on my CDL

Can I retake road test only in a manual to get restriction removed.

In order to get the restriction removed, you will need to pass the pre-trip inspection and road test.

I went through this process in Pennsylvania.

Question for my fellow LTLers or anyone really

Are you guys insanely busy like we are?

Yep. I usually run flatbeds but was put on an account pulling dry vans for 8 weeks, 7 days a week. I've been running on recaps for the last three weeks. Today is my first reset in a month.

Blessed to be working!!

Is Western Express a good place for a rookie?

Got everything squared away with the recruiter, I leave on the 14th for orientation. Decided to do dry van s

That's great news! Congrats.

I think pulling drive vans, in the beginning, is a good idea. It allows you to really focus on driving skills and getting comfortable behind the wheel.

Stay motivated!
