some ask what is it like to work for the gas industry ,well i recently got into hauling tanker for one in my area locally and let me go over some of what ive learned.

1. the mountains are unforgiving that ya will be on,they arent paved at all and they go practically straight up and down. and yes there are times ya go up or come down loaded.

2. normally only thing between ya and ur maker is a 100+ ft drop to the bottom.

3. there is never to much snow to drive in,chains are required and no im n ot goin in that snow isnt applicable.

4. spills are not acceptable ya will have off for a week or so for one small drop of water on ground.

5. i make as much if not a bit more goin home everyday as i did when i went home every 3 weeks.

6. pti is required for potholes destroy trucks.

thats just some and always remember that ld is always moving never forget whats hooked to ur butt.

Where are you hauling, WV ? I'ved hauled Frack Gell out of Chicago from PA to Wyoming, the worst I hauled to was on the Ohio side of the river about 25 miles south of wheeling about 3 miles west on CR255 I think. almost killed the engine going up with 80,000 lbs. later going down, the sign said 15% grade next 1 mile on that twisty narrow no guard rail road*
