How do you do dishes on the road

Just found that Reynolds even has crock pot liners for cooking! That way you just trash the liner and no mess inside the crock pot.

I meant like washing dishes. The drivers I know just use paper plates and plasticware. Lots of lunchmeat / sandwiches.

I never heard of anyone doing dishes on the road. Paper plates and plastic utensils seem like the easiest answer.

You never heard of using a crock pot, electric skillet or other things in a truck?

New to the forum,wanted to say thank you.

Took alot of time today thinking things over and doing some research on different companies. For me here in Texas, I've narrowed it down to Werner, Transport America, US Xpress and Schneider. US Xpress and Schneider offer military advantage program giving you credit for your time served in the military.

Spoke to CFI today. They are here in Texas and truck goes home with toy if you don't live near terminal. When I asked the recruiter what was their distance mileage from the terminal that decided if the truck went home with you or you parked it where they designated, she asked me,"What do you mean?"

Spoke with Roehl. For dedicated routes you do not get your own truck, you slip seat.

Yeah but you know 2yrs out is when we start ACAP process. I'm not one of those that processes 100 different things. I zero in on what I want to do and focus on that. Gives me plenty of time to lay everything on the sand table.

Yeah that's what I noticed also. I think the closest company to me that will have what I'm looking for is Werner. They have two terminals here, reginal/dedicated routes and take home truck.

Parking won't be a problem. House with 2 acres I've got more than enough room. To include a full surveillance system (I own my own security company). We'll be between Killeen and Austin TX area. I really want a Regional or dedicated. If I do otr, I would like it to be 7 days out then home time ya know.

Does Knight allow the truck to go home with you or does it get parked where they say?

If you can, research a call school that's maybe longer so that you have more time. My school is five weeks long instead of the normal three.

Been looking at Wolding Patrick. Since we plan on staying and residing in Texas, looking at their hiring map the closest region for me would be Southeast. Going to give the recruiting team a call to see what they would offer me living in Texas with the closest drop site being in Alabama.
