    1150. The biggest dead head I ever had was from Colton Ca to West Memphis. 1750 miles. Just to grab a load going right back to So Ca.

    If you are driving a 2018 volvo, check your VIN. Saw another one with only 7 digits. This is just a reason for them to check up on you.

    Not a great load, but I'm relatively sure you won't get turned around by troopers for not having snow chains installed or have to detour due to high winds and wildfires. :)

    I'm not even going to mention traffic. It took me 3 hours to travel 60 miles from Anaheim to the Cajon pass yesterday. I don't even want to calculate how much I earned per hour for that trip. o_O
     
    Silverdriver and JohnBoy Thank this.

    A0CABB54-878B-4344-9F71-E00E4678FCD2.png Here’s my delivery Monday morning in Cerritos. I call the contact and asked about a loading dock, nope. He asked me about a lift gate, nope. He asked me how was I suppose to get it off the trailer. I explained to him when I pull into his parking lot Monday morning my job is done. An hour later Abilene calls and tells me to drop the trailer in Colton.
