At Home

I picked up the load from ConAgra in Council Bluffs, Iowa nice and early this morning and ran it down to Carthage, Missouri just like I planned. No surprises.

I spoke with the Conway driver that inherited my truck a few months back and heard his tale of woe. Apparently, a different company waved a carrot in front of him (nice dedicated run with plenty of hometime that he wants) and after he quit Conway and was in the process of joining up with them it turned out that “opportunity was no longer available, but there are plenty of OTR jobs.” This isn’t an uncommon story in the trucking industry, so if someone makes you an offer that makes you think about switching make sure you get it in writing.
