    Stay out of that truckstop. Roll your team 11 hours each until both of you are out of hours for the week. You know you can only go about roughly 22 hours a day on that clock.

    The reason for teaming is to get that freight down the road. Say from LA CA to Avenel NJ within about 53 hours or less without stopping except one time for fuel. This was back in 2001 prior to your current HOS changes which removed certain rhythm method logging and a couple of other things.

    Super Solo is better (or at least makes more 'sense' to many of us) anyway. 3 x 8 equals 24.

    Each of y'all drive 8 hours, and take an 8 off. Creatively logged, totally doable. Mostly for O/O's, IMHO......

    All i seem to get out of this is ### in the first string, and BK (buttkiss) in the 2nd. Also, in the first post, you stated 'team a and team b' .. 4 people to a truck?!?!? Outdoing CRE, are ya?!?
