    Let me answer your question with a question - which is the best ice cream flavor? Chocolate or Vanilla?

    It's the same answer that you will most likely post.

    "It depends on your preference".

    The real question is.....

    What do you want?

    Home time?

    Team or single?

    A place where everyone knows your name?

    Rick I've been with Tri-State since aug. 06 and always as a solo(except for 4 weeks that I lost my Mind and ran Team) . Things are not good in this Biz right now. 2 years ago I could Easy hit 1600 miles a week or more, Now if i'm lucky 1100 and the rates have gone down too. So If you are looking for some quick Cash and easy Money This is not the place to make it.
