    Snowwy not all us have the opportunity to do laundry and a reset at home. Also what I mean by clean the truck is clean the inside. Also there are those who do not have the experince or desire to do local/regional work.

    Sure I fell into that mind set when I bought my first truck, then opted for Fast for Cash neither of these really work. Most of it relied on a sharp pencil, but with the advent of E-logs as a company driver it is almost impossible, and with today's regulations and an more aggressive DOT work force out there it's not worth the Kettle of worms you could open for yourself and your employer. My Advice, Take your break, sleep what you need to be safe, and if there is time left over, go in have some coffee, very few last without interaction with other drivers beyond that stupid CB.
