    That's funny. Every Friday night.."What are you looking to do?"
    If you want to go home, you pay the price.

    You stay in hotels.. you’ll see a few extraboard guys with sleepers but they put you up in a hotel for your 10 or your 34 if you choose to stay out. Starting pay for extraboard is .68 I believe.

    Insane to start at .68 CPM and it’s not even top rate is it? How many miles could you expect to get in a five day work week if you were new

    Also besides the .68 is there any other pay for D&H or other work related activities

    I wouldn't say that. Lot of bids guys complain about 600 miles a night and the work commute every day.

    I have a buddy in paducah ky runs 598 miles a night with 20 drop and hooks a week.

    That's like right at $2300 a week. 12 hour days home every day.

    Thats over 110k yr. Home everyday. 99% of otr guys could stay out the entire year and wouldn't come close.

    I just took a bid but before that they had been pretty good about running my clock out on Friday. I was averaging 575-600 miles a day on the east coast but I was running to get it done.
