This is pretty much what I do all day long. Some days(rare), I sit on a frac pad waiting to unload. This can take half a day sometimes.


When you get to about 11:55, I'm stuck at a construction zone for about 5 minutes. Just zip through that part until I get moving.

In the beginning, we had just loaded from Frac tanks. 4200 gallons of fresh water we have to take to another Frac site about 10 miles away.

We have jobs just like mine in Ohio, W. Va, PA, OK, TX, and who know'* where else.

If your planning on getting your Class B, don't stop there, go all the way and get your Class A.

I think I can get a CDL class for free at a college near where I live, so I'm going for a Class A.
