I had a retired straight truck driver freind who bought a Ford window passenger van and hauled the Amish around. Those women love to travel and sightsee. They paid everything. Even motels and meals during the trip. He even bought an enclosed trailer to pull so they had a place to put what they bought during the trip. He did very well.

My prediction is that the driver shortage will correct itself when the bubble burst 1st quarter of 2019.

And before someone complains, I HOPE I’m wrong......

I've been trying since January to put a driver on my van, I talked to many drivers interested, some said yes, but never showed up for orientation, some were and still are waiting for the springtime...

As with any unfilled job position - offer a better deal and you will find takers beating down your door.

If one goes through the archives, amazingly, the majority of posts could have been from a week ago. o_O
