    I'm at home. My clock will reset before i deliver. I will net at least 900. I just got another pickup 8am Wednesday deliver same-day 1700 for 276 miles. So I guess it turned into a 1350 day.
    If you can net 900 everyday you work you'll do #### good at the end of the year

    Completely agree. But what happens if they hold you and you miss the 8am load? Again that second load helps massively but if you could not have gotten that then what? That’s always my fear.
