    Hey how's it going, my buddy and I would like to drive for a company. We would like to drive the Cargo Van/Sprinters across the states. We can be on the road for 3 weeks out of the month. Looking for heavy miles and good pay. We drive hard, the van never stops unless it's for fuel. We are located out in Illinois, looking to start ASAP. Again, we're looking for TEAM WORK. We both have experience in the field. If you're looking for a couple of hard working guys that won't give you any problems, by all means let me know. Thank You.

    P.S. I hope this is the right place for the thread if not, my apologies.

    Many folks have great intentions but neglect to study the industry and truly understand how it works.

    You are a nice Turtle. :)

    Hard workers? Wanna put in the effort? Spend at least 2 hrs a day for the next 14 days reading this forum. Read as many posts as you can.

    I'm starting to get weary of brand new members that state they're hard workers but can't exert the effort to do the necessary research.

    Well, they already know it. At least they think they do. "We both have experience in the field."

    Unfortunately, everything about their thread title and post screams OTR General Trucking, not expediting. They have a rude awakening coming when they find out expediting is, like, toootally different from general trucking.

    It will be easier to eat cheaper on the road after OVM retires. Supply and demand, the price of Hot Dogs is bound to drop

    Seriously Bronx23, I am not sorry I got into this a couple years ago but it is not easy to make a living in a van now. If you don't own your own van it is twice as difficult. Think long and hard
