    Health Insurance

    Raising rates, curtailing freedom, and taking control of people's lives is ALL they are after. Only fools believe that this is "good" for anyone.

    Health Insurance

    Yeah, that maternity care for me is a MUST! What a freakin joke! I'll tell you one thing the ONLY way we can afford what we had, before it was made "less expensive", would be form ME to get knocked up and then sell the rights to the story to the National Enquirer. Then at least I could use the...

    Health Insurance

    We lost 100% of our coverage. Went from a plan we could afford, to nothing. We have spent well over 100 hours on the phone, countless emails to senators etc, since 19 Dec. No progress.

    "I was reading alot of post of drivers sitting for days not making any money." This is a correct statement. It is not out of the norm to sit for days, sometimes longer, without a load. Then the next load pays $7500 and the week is normal. That is the nature of this business. It can be feast or...

    Drinking beer in the sleeper berth

    Keep the shades closed, better yet, don't do it. They cannot just open the door and walk in.

    Drinking beer in the sleeper berth

    Drinking in a sleeper would NOT be a good idea. I do have one question, how would they know if they don't see you take it in? :confused: They cannot just open your door and look, they have NO business in your sleeper when you are legally parked. Just wondering.

    Surface division?

    We have had several short, under 500 mile, government loads. DOD, all other government, and surface loads, are all treated the same by my company. They either pay me what I want to run that load, or I don't run it. It is REALLY simple. If that means we go out of business, then that is what will...

    Surface division?

    Most people on BP meds should not be eating grapefruit.

    Surface division?

    Whether or not DOD loads pay enough is a very personal thing. The decision is based on what type of truck you are in, where you are located at the time of the load offer, whether or not you can handle the 8-2 HOS drill etc. We run a few now and then, mainly when we cannot get a load more...

    new to expedited area

    Re: sircharles4999 I think you may be misunderstanding FSC. It is highly unlikely that you would get the FSC if the owner is paying for the fuel.

    Re: sircharles4999 Is that $1.70 including the FSC or the base rate? Any loading or unloading to do?
