Company I am currently with is out of St. Louis, and we run most all Midwest to to Northwest.. We go up into WI and V&S comes down this way.. Have seen them out in UT and CO at times also..

Thanks Turtle. Hoping to run mostly S. and W. and avoid much of the E., especially early in my career. Something about streets, bridges and docks built for horse-drawn wagons which just don't seem like a great fit for 70' long 80,000 lb. rigs!

Or am I making too big a deal of this?

I would get on with some company running the lower 48. You'll get a great start that way with exposure to all the things that will help you develop as a professional. I spend a lot of my time in the Northeast. I hear other drivers say you can't make any money there and I shrug my shoulders. Maybe they only know how to run a truck out West where there's wide open space and parking available after 1500, but they would be much better prepared for all the many challenges of this career if they would expose themselves to them.

I don't recommend you cower from the difficulties out here. Face the challenges head on and learn from them. You'll be a much better driver for your efforts.

I don't know about any horse-drawn wagons bumping docks haha. But you are going to encounter Bridges and questionable streets everywhere not just the east coast. Indiana for example is wide open for the most part but there are a few towns that are pretty tight. I understand where you're coming from though.

I have to agree with old school on that thought..

I have taken every challenge my career has thrown at me.. Back in the day even crossed Mexico a few times.. Up to The very cold Winters of Yellowknife in the NW Territories of Canada.. Every Big city to small back road out there.. IF you do proper Preplanning and have faith in your abilities you can make out just fine anywhere..

As far as V&S I have seen them in our loops here in Midwest.. If you are interested in them and have an idea of the area you want to be in, then I suggest you contact them and ask them "what lanes they operate".. They should let ya know..
