    It seems you often have the problem of the other driver not being able to.
    That must get frustrating.

    But what bites him also bites you as well, doesn't it?
    Drivers like that should not be running those relay trips if they won't/can't plan their time correctly.

    I've done it a couple times to 'help out', and I made it on time for the other driver.
    I like a more relaxed schedule, so I will not be in that situation if I can help it.

    it only hurts me if he can't make it back to Denver terminal. if he can't get back then we miss a trip.
    I will end up dropping a load to the dropyard in Las Vegas. if I can do 2 trips there then I am still getting the same paycheck.
    but normally I end up doing only one.

    if I get to.misquite nv then I know I can make it.back to jurupa the next day if something happens that I don't get to.beaver ut.
    I think he has to get to green river ut in order to make it back to denver.
     
    Moosetek13 Thanks this.

    what's yens thought's on the Zonar Communications, a Samsung Tablet, is swift going to this because it's cheaper to run, must be it's a business, it's always about the bottom line,

    Joliet, IL at a Pilot.

    I had a 1600 pick up at Ikea and was told it would be ready at 1630.
    I went back at 1630 and they said it would now be 1930 before it was ready.
    My 14 will not last that long so I came back to the Pilot for the night. Good thing I'm bobtail, because I dropped my mt at Ikea and there is no other room here.

    Qualcomm put me on driveline for the 2nd time .
    I had put in on of and waited for it to change b4 I lived.
    but somehow it auto changed to driveline for 59 sec.
    so won't get a 34 reset in.
    Will have enough hrs to run this week but informed other driver I can not pass beaver ut.
    Will have to watch my minutes just I case.
