    Does Estes have any retired drivers working part time? I'd quit trucking today if I had the money. I'm 59 and would like to start drawing at 62 (figure you better get it while you can / if you can). The money wouldn't be great, but a little part time work would help.
    This is a while away. Just wondering if anyone else was doing it. I'm currently running team with my wife. We could be a part time, fill in team.

    Don't think they have part time drivers but who knows what the future holds. Might keep me out of trouble if they do. I'm planning to become the next Popcorn Sutton when I hang my hat. Heck, I'm practically there now.

    Estes has part time drivers. We have one retired driver who works 2 days a week and is over 65. Hope that helps.

    I think we've got a couple of part time Linehaul guys who fill in for schedules here and there.

    Sounds interesting. I think I'll be lucky to make it till 62. An occasional run would sure beat part time at Wal Mart! I especially thought a part time team could maybe fill in for team vacations.
