    My first week of extra board goes as follows.

    232 Spokane - 233 tri cities - 246 Boise = 436
    Laid down(my choice) and got my new truck.

    246 Boise - 225 SLC - 237 Twin Falls = 564

    237 Twin Falls - 223 Auburn = 623

    223 Auburn - 237 Twin Falls = 623

    237 Twin Falls - 225 SLC - 257 Grand JCT= 500

    257 Grand JCT - 224 Denver - 257 Grand JCT = 522

    Total miles = 3,268

    Not bad for a first week of running. Currently resetting in Denver.

    Yup my TM has been really pushing for it here in Spokane. We send all of our east bound freight through SLC when it doesn't have too.

    Yeah them old people net PD4's are enough to make you pull your hair out. I like how the new tablets tell you your total shift drive available before you even take your 30

    We had a driver on our team run quit. The run is Cincinnati, Toledo, Salt Lake City, Toledo, Salt Lake City, Toledo, Cincinnati. 6800 miles, Sunday to Friday, i signed up but then backed out at the last minute. I haven't really driven out west and I'm not comfortable with trying to sleep in the truck while someone else is driving in that snow. It sucks to pass on it tho, would be like 120-130k.
