    I dropped off a 2.79 mile on 640 miles today, picking up a 2.30 mile load on 630 miles today, 30 mile dh, picking up tomorrow a 845 miles load at 2.97 a mile, then dh 130 miles and pick up a 1.98 load at 1186 miles that drops 60 miles from home . I may leave if the freight doesn't get better and lease to tmc.

    You poor thing! My coordinator is on fire again. 3 preplans at $3+ a mile average all miles. Cleveland area to Chicagoland and back. Slinky coils one way, shingles and beams the other.

    Does anyone still run 20 across? Many moons ago I ran the cleveland Chicago lane all week long. Never touched the toll road. But fuel was 90 cents a gallon back then.

    Well, this week got ripped off. The customer made an error. Was supposed to deliver by canton but ended up in Marietta oh. Reload a load of beams and headed back north. Had a coil lined up. Getting ready to head out to load it and it cancelled. Wanted me to hold it until Friday until 3-5pm. For $500. Nope. Just put her in the wind and came home. 2 day week this week.
     
    BAYOU Thanks this.

    Well, September is in the books. $2.01 for all miles. October had a slow start. 1st 3 days we went on vacation then the 10th I had to rush home to take the wife to the hospital. 13 days early was our 2nd child born. Run 2392 miles for 6017.75 so far this month. Still a happy trucker. Looking at a different truck at the moment as well
