I too am in NC, welcome to the site I hope it helps you as much as it does me. I am slowly, but surely become diesel educated thanks to these fine "fokes with strokes" Where are you at in NC, I am in Concord. If you don't mind me asking how did you land the hauling frieght deal? Sounds really cool.

Oh and Many Thanks for the great service to our Country!!

This is a cool site

I'm in Townsville NC and landing a hotshot job is not hard at all. You have a truck I take it just buy a 40' trailer type hotshot owner operators needed in the search box hit go, and take your pick on who you want to pull for.
