    Sometimes I get so tired I don't feel like racing the clock to get the paperwork turned in by 1700.

    This is what it looks like in the parking lot at 1655 most Mondays with all the drivers rushing to get their paperwork in:

    Take those northeast loads.
    That's where the money is.
    There's always a fast load up there going back
    To dallas or Houston.

    Im pretty close to your numbers. Made 75k last year and on pace to do better so far for this year. I choose not to go west so it can get interesting on how to make the money sometimes lol. That Chester plant can really suck at times.

    Well they didn't just do it in Georgia and Florida.
    I had a 9pm in Reno 2 weeks ago.
    A 11 pm in Topeka.
    Going to Lebanon Oregon now.
    7 pm delivery up there.

    They didn't change the load times.
    So if shipping is on time, then you basically lose
    A day on the delivery end.
    Because you'll be right down the road from the
    Receiver that morning.
    Then have to sit all day for the night delivery.

    Then you have to find a place to park in the middle
    Of the night and basically take another 10 hour break.
    Because you won't be able to be somewhere at 9am
    The next day because your 14 hours ran out.

    Unless you know for certain you can park there.
    And even then you still need time to get loaded
    And get out of there.

    But I understand why they done it.
    I was at Grand Prairie today.
    All the madness is over.
    Only 1 truck in the dock.
    Nobody else waiting.

    I see big accidents in the future ... many will have been up over 24 hours ...now got
    make a delivery at 11pm ... leave out at 1 or 2 am while trying to find a place to park
    and stay awake behind the wheel ... one 'long blink' as we used to call it
    and splat !

    You just made your self and instant parking place in the tree line on the side of the road
    or heaven forbid crossed the centerline into another vehicle .

    And then too boot ... they will put you on trial and tell you ( if you live )
    .. " why did you take the load "
    " you should have waited for another load !"

    oh well

    what can ya do

    no one gets out alive

    :dontknow:
