    You have pickups you can’t get until 4:30? That doesn’t happen in my neck of the woods.

    I punched out today at 3 after 18 stops and 250 miles.

    Yeah, pretty normal for us. Our guys are pretty well divided for start times at 0830, 0900, 1000. We regularly have guys leaving to do volume swaps that are 45-90 minutes from the terminal at 1700-1800. It's an unusual night when everyone is off the street before 1945 or so. We have about four guys that start at 0730. Bottom floater board guys start as late as noon and do 9 hours.

    A big mileage day for me is 150. I'm usually around 115-120. We do have several runs that push 350 miles daily

    That’ll probably wind up as a return to shipper.

    It never ceases to amaze me what idiot internet shoppers expect.

    Yeah place they were consigned to unloads from ground with carpet boom, I never unstrapped it though. I had customer get up in trailer to look at it and he refused it on the spot

    A little different of a set than I’m usually pulling.

    I did my first Ground run a few weeks ago. Was going to get a pic on the way home, but they didn't have any empties...so I had to bobtail for 215 miles. At least I didn't have any problems finding a place to take my 30.
