I keep seeing articles written by these ATA hacks pushing for support to get 18 year olds driving OTR. Now my question is... who would benefit from that other than the mega carriers? How many small carriers and owner operators will go out of business when the insurance rates go through the roof? When even more experienced drivers are gone how's that going to solve the capacity crunch ? The safety aspect alone is scary to think about.

I have been laid off for 1.5 years & ready to switch occupations. I applied at Millis but was turned down for lack of recent work history. From what I read, i wish that would not have happened. I am waiting on a call from Schnieder this week. Any opinions there? Any other recommendations?
I have my dot physical card. Plan on taking my permit test next week. I plan on being otr, & doing some serious driving.
Thanks for any advice given.

So I've got a little over a year experience, half OTR (quit @ 6 months because of staying out for basically no money) and half local. I wanted to do LTL when I quit OTR but they all required 1 year exp. I now have 13 months and all my endorsements. I live in ATL and pretty much every LTL besides UPS is hiring for Road drivers (linehaul which is what I'm interested in). I've narrowed it down to FXF, OD, and Estes... not sure which one is better for my area. Anyone have any thoughts or...

Which LTL?

The wheel in the picture is on my driver's side front axle. Do you think this small dent would be enough to cause a vibration at highway speeds? I feel it in the steering wheel as well as the seat.

About 1 hour before I am legal to continue, I wake up, shower and eat. By the time that is complete, I am legal to go on duty and PTI/Fuel(assuming I did not fuel before I shut down and need fuel to complete my day).

I plan on my meal break somewhere between the start of hour 5 and end of...

Time management and trip planning...
