Personally, I love driving in Pennsylvania. I don't go there hardly at all anymore. Used to go several times a month. But I do Florida much more often.

And I hate it. Lol.

Ups and downs for sure.

4 weeks of training so far seem like im a regional Pennsylvania and western ohio driver. Scranton roads might be the worst ive been on outside of texas/ shreveport

Regional:

Regional Route

Usually refers to a driver hauling freight within one particular region of the country. You might be in the "Southeast Regional Division" or "Midwest Regional". Regional route drivers often get home on the weekends which is one of the main appeals for this type of route.

Ditto that on Indiana. The ironic part to me is that my company, Schneider, registers all their equipment in Indiana but driving on Indiana roads destroys equipment and tires. At least the scenery is spectacular. (NOT)

Yeah indiana is bad but im from there so im used to it. Kind of like how its hard to see the mess you look at everyday. I actually live right off Cline Ave where i believe Schneider has a terminal , thats an awful road further north by the steel mills. Im actually heading down 65 tomorrow on the way to Kentucky so ill get to experience some more Indiana.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.
