    Here it is 2018 and mandatory E logs have started. I DON'T want to trully cheat the system, but I don't feel the need to sleep 10 hours when I am an hour away from my delivery. I am sure there is a way. Any ideas?

    Elogs don't allow people to cheat. Only paper loggers cheat. Everybody knows that.

    Drive faster, that is what I now find myself doing. Make sure your brakes are good too... I need to do the steers. ;-)

    How did you spend your time on your 10 hour break when you had paper logs?

    I wish I could cheat a shower out of this thing... Sucks, cannot move without starting the clock and fifty miles from a truck stop I would NORMALLY be sitting at instead of this Walmart.

    I did not stop for a whole ten hours. I stopped when I felt I needed a break to eat, sleep etc..
    So now 10 hours straight is too much.

    It is already wearing on me. I am smoking like a chimney and doing things I would never do. Not sleeping well either. And personal hygiene is not good. Instead of hitting a truck stop after delivering, I keep finding myself in Walmart parking lots when I would normally be in a truck stop where I SHOULD BE!

    Yes, I undertand the concept they are promoting, "safety ". But it does NOT work in real life like it does in book world.

    I have to agree, I was hitting warp speed last night getting to my delivery playing beat the clock. Normally I would have set the cruise at 64 and arrived at 2300 instead of the 2230, the time I ran out of hours. Thank God the traffic was light and the cops were elsewhere. And I will add, what I did was not safe.
