Did you win the step van competition again this year ump???????
No way... I'm a 600lb line driver, you'd need the jaws of line to get me out of that sucker!!
Next time use the back roll up door!!!! It's big enough where you wont get stuck. Dangit son.
What is considered a break bulk terminal or I guess what difference is between versions? Most guys I've been saying expect probably 2-3 years on extra board. Even then might be a night bid or always looking to work the 6th to make up miles. Mileage hasn't been a issue extra board so far out of Denver. But sounds like some places you spend more time sitting or just doing low mile runs for a while.
Denver is break bulk. PDX is, SLC, SAC all are. Break bulk, is where freight comes in on break trailers and is swung onto direct relays to final destination or swung on other breaks. Yes 2 to 3 is a good time range. Yes night runs on extra board. Don't believe everything that you hear from everyone. I wait due to my bid. No meet partner, no real gate, a lot of turning in 10. We have a excellent dispatcher that knows how to run freight.
What did you ever do to that game people play in the pool Marco Polo to make him go away? Wink
Haven't seen that dispatcher in years.
I think he was escorted out of the pool. Never worked under him.
One thing to keep in mind is SEA is end of the line, extra guys have gotten hungry in the past. SLC will keep you busy, Boise is going to be a break point soon, still not sure how all the runs are going to shake out once they become a break and when the north Utah terminal is completed, which is where the Boise meets will come from. A lot of it depends on if you like chaining, I know in Denver you get your fair share, but the North West is an interesting ball game. Running from Boise to PDX, HER or SEA has its challenges and vis versa. Or you can try city and work your way to a long peddle run that will provide you with a lot of hours. Spokane is nice as well.
Its 65 on the west side! That's the better side anyways!
Wrong. Oregon is 55 on the west and 65 on the East but all of our drivers still do 65 on both sides.
That is correct Billy, I hate to admit I was corrected by you but I did a typo.
It's ok, you don't visit the great one's home territory enough to know.
Plus I heard you can text on the east side too....
That's right, phone in the face and peddle to the governor.
