    Not a bad plan. You must have a massive house if you are willing to house everyone that might come. Any hotels nearby (preferably the nice and cheap kind)? Holiday Inn's and such?

    Not that I'm saying I won't accept an offer for a free night's stay somewhere but if the wife comes along, I might need a place to myself. Just sayin'.

    What part of Mid GA you at?


    Yeah I'm down for meeting up in ATL but can't do the drive to FL. I'm a full time student w/out a job until June soooo won't have any money to save up. I'd have to head back home down I-16 afterwards so if y'all take 75 to Macon that would be perfect.

    No, I don't have a massive house. But so far it seems like a small crowd, so it's not a big deal. Like I said before, Army Lodging is great. Cheaper and better than any Holiday Inn. And you have the added safety of staying on post. I don't recommend staying in Hinesville. Bad crime rate

    I was sort of hoping to make this a pretty sizable meet but then again, the less people, the easier I'll remember names and faces. lol

    ****in' A dude. Coming from a world where there were only around 4,000 of your car ever made (The Mazdaspeed Protege... not the Speed3) and where your specific color was 1 of around 600.... I know the feeling. Glad to be a part of something badass!

    Well, I'm down for whatever, until we get a 3rd driver for our group in the company, I can take whatever days off as long as I let the company know a week or so in advance.

    But once we get a 3rd driver, I will be on a regular schedule of 2 weeks on the road and 1 week home. Only problem is... I dunno when we are getting the 3rd one.

    What do you transport? Are they hiring? I have my class A CDL but I haven't used it in a while. I do have a security clearance and once you drive a combination... you can always drive a combo. Where do you guys drive etc?

    Just trying to line up someone other than what I'm doing for when I get home. If it pays well enough, I could be your 3rd driver. Would sort of screw with us doing this meet together but meets will come and go.

    I transport w/e..... I don't have a hazmat yet, but I'm with Schneider National. I do Eastern regional.... and by Eastern Regional, basically anything East of I-35.

    They are hiring, but for the home run program, where we need 3 drivers, you need atleast 6 months with the company. Starting pay is .27 cents a mile along with other misc pay when dealing with the load itself.

    The Company would run you through its training program. You could be just a regular Over-The-Road driver doing the Eastern regional, with that you get 1 day off for every week you are out... but you rate 4 days off per month if you wanted. I've been doing 2.5 weeks out with 3 days off, no one's had a problem with that yet.
