Motorcycle camping is the best. When I finish building my retirement cabin I plan to spend many weekends doing this. Have fun!

Well THAT looks great !!!! Securement, AND otherwise !! Got anyone set up for the pillion?? I'm not far, ya know...and I travel light! You can just sling that inner pack, on my back :)

Besides . . . maybe you could share some job leads w/me, for Tom (and maybe Don ?!?!?) This FAB stuff is a travesty for us.

Above .. Kidding, and not! Be safe, you ~

Sorry Anne, my 27 year old daughter is coming down from BG, Ohio to meet me at the camp site, along with her 13 lb Pomeranian that she says is going riding with us. Rally is based in Nelsonville, Ohio.

I tried to think of some options for you guys when I first saw the posts. I was thinking maybe some of the paper companies like Ohio Packaging and Greif but I didn't see any postings. I think most of them are based in Massillon with maybe some in Mansfield.

I'm now with a small (30+ trucks) company here in Cincinnati. My old boss sold off his trucks and me and the other driver were part of the deal. We pretty much operate under the 150 mile rule so no logging. I really like it but I doubt they would want to base a truck up your way.

Now, THAT looks like fun!! I bet your daughter & pupper will enjoy tons! The weather should be awesome!!

Thanks for keeping us in mind, re: truck/jobwise. Ten Express (some USPS carrier here in Ohio) is another 'look see' for us; we've been talking to a lot of tanker hauling companies; he's got the experience, so .. we'll see. It's more work than he's wanting, but .. local ~!

Still, AFTER your vacay; keep us in the loop if you would! Appreciate you, be safe y'all.

ps: Tom says 'no worries, we're definitely not selling the bike(s!) LoL ~!

Was thinking about looking into your place too, Turtle. Thoughts????? Anything is worth a look'see.

Appreciate y'all !

ps: So many of you folks have been really great, helping us out in unsure times. Ever grateful.

Anne: Do you mean 10 Roads? When I hauled mail they were around a lot. Problem with mail is that the schedules are normally all over the place.

Yep, that's them! 10Roads Express... I knew something didn't look right in my typing. Oops...sorry!

Tom's been through the 'schedule' stuff... years ago; don't know how he'd do with the swing shifts at his age though, nowadays. If you think/hear of anymore on them (or others,) please holler!

For now, GO ENJOY, man!!!

Thanks tons,

~ Anne ~ ( & Tom ) !

10 Roads.....That bunch is about half a notch above the Amazon contractors. Wild and dangerous drivers from what I've seen.

Honestly, with Tom's experience I don't know why he hasn't looked at WM already. I figure you have your reasons, and I don't pry.

The only thing that may be a make/break for him will be the available schedules at your local DC. I lucked into a perfect schedule from jump. He could too.

I'll be happy to answer any detailed questions y'all have. Email in my profile.

Yeah, I've been looking at that; they're crossed off the list.

Thank you, sir.

ps: PittOhio is a bit farther than we'd hoped, and what even IS a road driver? The LTL world confuses me. Road Driver Job in Grove City, OH

Turtle;

Really, no reasons. This all snuck up on us. WM doesn't advertise; I've really not seen much. We had, awhile back; not lately at all. I don't even know how to find where our DC would be, honestly. Hours are a non issue, overall. Tom prefers driving 2nd/3rd shift, but who's picky .. he's amenable to any shift, really.

In a sense, however .... Brandon gave 'me' the feel of possible micromanagement. Thoughts?

I'll grab your email; thanks! Any link you could share (externally) that would provide some info?

I really appreciate it, thank you. My email is posted, also.

Yeah, they're not looking too hot, at all. Thank you. I think that's who BFR328 drove for, too.

OMIGOSH, go enjoy your vacay!! Thanks, man.. sorry for the hijack!!!

LTL:

Less Than Truckload

Refers to carriers that make a lot of smaller pickups and deliveries for multiple customers as opposed to hauling one big load of freight for one customer. This type of hauling is normally done by companies with terminals scattered throughout the country where freight is sorted before being moved on to its destination.

LTL carriers include:

  • FedEx Freight
  • Con-way
  • YRC Freight
  • UPS
  • Old Dominion
  • Estes
  • Yellow-Roadway
  • ABF Freight
  • R+L Carrier

We'll help you make the right choices and prepare for a great start to your trucking career.
