I've been real curious about this for awhile. Seems like there are hardliners in both camps. What is your reasoning?
I'll give mine. After just a few months as an O/O I said screw it and quit keeping track of deadhead vs. loaded miles. To be clear, I ALWAYS try to keep my deadhead miles down but I don't really pay much attention to them otherwise. To me, if the truck moves a mile I count my money by that figure. In other words, I just run 'all miles' all the time when thinking of my average. If I just looked at loaded miles I'd be getting rich. Looking at all miles only makes a lot more sense to me.
What do you do and why?
