Had a nice weekend at home, actually, I have been home for more nights in December then I have been out. Doing a lot of in state and local work. Pay is still decent. But I am more then ready to put it back into the wind and roll.
I have this number in my head for 2009. 200,000 Miles. Done it before, but never with 1-2 nights a week at the house. So I am going to give it a shot, and see, if the situation I am in, is really the best trucking job ever! Should be doable. All my loads out are on pre-loaded trailer when I hit the dock. 2,000+ miles out, unload and reload at same door, and return. The trick is to not have any major breakdown and to steer clear of the weather. Even then, I think I can average 4,300 miles a round-trip.
