    Looking forward to starting another chapter of my life. Won't be easy but will take the good with the bad. What's it like working for Panther? Orientation this week then hopefully my 1st load as well. I'm open for suggestions.

      Lot's of
      Welcome to EO!! Sounds like you may be a fleet owner-driver, starting out, it's a good idea to take as much advice as possible from your fleet on items like layover area and how much time to wait before it's to dead-head somewhere else. Good luck for success!

      Typically, a fan of the original 6, is a pretty good guy.
      Good Luck to you.

      Do what’s best for your business. Don’t let them bully you into doing loads. Take loads that make sense to your business. Be friendly but know, they are not your friend. Network with other panthers drivers to learn their good areas. Don’t be afraid to turn bad loads down.

      Ok it’s been over 2 weeks now, how about an update on your expediting adventures with Panther. This would be helpful for other newbies who are wanting to test the waters with Panther.
