    Just got to ask where is all the dang work lately?

    Seem like it slow all over and that high stock is down almost 40 bucks. You guys thinking of coming over might want to hold off unless you got a big reserve of cash money in your bank.

    Nope .. I've got high mountain goats, they chaff in that sea level salt air. Not a pretty sight.

    Tacoma, WA(CNN Business)The initial 3rd quarter earnings report for OD indicate lower revenue and increases of work comp claims,especially in the Northwest region because of freight movement delays from drivers performing lawn duties at terminals that have received more than normal rainfall, along with excellent growing conditions and comp claims from drivers not being able to get their large cranium inside the truck cab.

    It’d be nice if one of these posts didn’t go towards the goat/lawn mowing subjects. Oh look a squirrel

    In all seriousness I’d like to know why it’s slow too. We’ve been through this before but let me know when the sky falls

    Tis' the season!! This question pops up every year around this time. Some places are slow, others still looking for drivers. Come to DEN if you want to work, all the teams and wild drivers stay away once the snow flies. Weekend warriors lose their "super trucker" abilities and can't operate a set past a 50 mile radius. You can pretty much run anytime you want on Saturday and Sunday. Bring you winter parka and enough chains to cover four tires and we'll put you to work.

    Ump's right, I've been out of the work force 29 yrs, but it was this way 35 yrs before, come Christmas, we always leased equipment to keep pace.
    BTW, Do you guys actually drive in that stuff?

    I’ve been to Denver in February and it was in the 60s and 20 and snowing back home. I’d come out anytime but I doubt I’d be allowed since I’ve got a schedule. Would wear out some wakeeny runs.
