    The only way I could see it is if you are running on Ag Exemption. I think they get to run what I would consider to be off the clock within 150 mile radius leaving and returning and maybe some other differences as well. But even then, I couldn't see being able to do it day in/day out.

    Also, I could be totally full of #### here too, the couple times I tried to figure out the ins and outs of Ag Exemption all I managed to do was confuse myself more.

    95% of my loads are Ag Exempt... yes there's a 150 mile radius from your home base & unload destination.. but there's also a catch 22 that it only applies during each states planting & harvest season.. some state have a year round season some like Iowa don't...
    From reading this thread .. just guessing .. I don't think the way I read it this Philip I Hill is running Ag Exempt.I could be wrong though
    I'am thinking about playing the B###S### card on his statement..." the over a 1000 miles a day for a avg and out 96 days " ... Thats the best driver I've probably heard of in my 40 yrs... He just set a whole new level for all us Livestock Relocators

    1000 miles a day? I dont think those are hub miles. You know drivers embellish things.

    A day is a 24-hour period, not a 14-hour clock. I said under the right conditions it's doable. You don't need a triple digit truck either. And you don't need to use the AG exemption covid-19 exemption, and you don't even need to break the law.

    On a run that's more than 1,000 mi, with no stops, start your clock at midnight and do your vehicle inspection. drive the full legal amount that you can drive, as fast as you can, legally, all necessary breaks included. Shut down, take a 10-hour break, start driving again at say 9:00 or 9:15 p.m. drive till midnight.

    There goes 13.75 hours of solid driving time in a day, a 24-hour period. This is assuming that you have a 75 mph truck, running west in States with speed limits at 75 or above, with a light load, no traffic backups, no DOT inspections, no unnecessary breaks, a light load, and no weather related delays.

    I almost put my foot in my mouth with that one. Almost.

    800 or 900 mi a day is much easier and more realistic for the average joe.

    Looks good on paper, but I doubt you could actually do it. For starters, you'd never drive that far without running into orange barrels.

    That said, your post reminds me of when I was OTR, on paper logs and had a 68 mph truck. It was exactly 712 miles from the terminal to where I parked for my home time. 11 x 68 is 748 miles. No issue, right? Wrong! I tried every route there was and it was impossible to LEGALLY drive that 712 miles in 11 hours. I would come up about 15-20 minutes short every time. But, because it was possible to drive 748 miles in a 68 mph truck, I was able look legal on paper. And, that's exactly what I did. No way I was spending the night in the truck over being short 15 minutes. Screw that!

    p.s. Don't try that in Oregon. I remember more than one of our drivers getting a log book speeding ticket courtesy of the weigh station on top of Cabbage. lol
    Lonesome and TB John Thank this.

    Probably a completely un-relatable comment to this thread, but I had one of their trucks pass me earlier this week on 10, not saying 1000 miles a day is doable, but I’m sure they rack up some miles, this fella was gettin it for sure across 10, kind of had to take a second look at the truck because of recalling this thread, truck and trailer were immaculate, definitely a west coast style large car 389 pulling an absolutely spotless trailer.
    Suspect Zero and Lonesome Thank this.
