If you are going to drive between now and 5am just go straight 95s.
Actually I was there for almost 9hrs, never go there.
OTR ain't worth it, go work for a local food service company, enjoy home every night and gross around mid 50s minimum plus benefits.
5hrs and counting for a door, I just have to take it and never again, first and last.

Having ELD in our trucks just got better than having paper logs and is NOT good news for drivers because shippers/receivers are going to abuse it...
1. Don't rush.
2. Put the phone down.
