Where / what are you doing for J.B. Hunt?

(Hoping to get back with them soon).

I was normal otr then they put me over on the feld account t finish out the season it’s an entertainment account Disney on ice Sesame Street live and more now I’m back otr till the fall when the season fires back up. I’ve also done kohls store delivery Walmart delivery. I let them send me where ever they need me if one of the dcs accounts are short drivers. And did some dray work around Atlanta. But I prefer to just be regular otr east 28 states east of i35 the store delivery’s drive me crazy in and out of the same place over and over no thanks.

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

Thanks everyone I haven’t been posting much but I’ve been following along. Love the new news thread also Brett. I’ll try and do like a year over view with my rookie struggles. And oh boy we’re there some struggles and hard lessons learned. And tons of wrong turns!!

Hey everyone been off a while but have been very busy. Surviving my first year otr. I say it like I did because that’s what it feels like I didn’t make it I survived. It was hard but it got easier as time went along. Still kicking with J.B. hunt and couldn’t be happier. I’ll keep it short for now but just wanted to say thanks to my tt family for helping me get this far. Still accident free and hope it stays that way. Y’all stay safe and I’ll try and pop in more often to say hi!!!

Awesome man, you're in with a smaller percentage being that you didn't have an accident in your first year. Good job
