    To further the point I drove 619 miles today in 10.5 hours after docking a trailer at Honda, went to Shipping and got my paperwork hunted out my hook to pickup on elog and would avg out to be over 3000 miles a week.

    If I drove 600 for 5 days that equals 3000 correct? Just stating how easily how you can get those miles.

    I've got a great idea.... YOU stay on line 4 and waste 6 hrs while Bubba putts around with his forklift and pallets eating up YOUR time. We have the legal exemption.... WE with things to do , will take use of it.

    Those that wish to sit on line 4 while peering out their windshield half the day at Costco can sit at the Petro out of hours while I'm heading home.

    It's a legal exemption.

    I went from dickson tn to canton ms last week. Little over 700 miles, 6 days, = a little over 4200 in a week. Go in the gate. Drop and hook and head back home. It can be done bit its rare.

    I do drop and hooks.. on every new trailer I do a pre trip, I've got know what I'm getting into. one might think previous driver took care of repairs but many don't seem to. guess who its on when I find it.. if you're 4200.. more power to ya

    Running from Reno Nevada to Salt Lake City you can log 6720 miles in 84 hours with a restart after 70 hours to fit 84 hours in 7 days 100% legally as long as your truck runs the speed limit....

    Yep, I've been told the same, but I do the speed limit or 5mph more whenbit is practical, safe and I feel comfortable. If they don't want trucks doing the limit, they should post signs with separate limits for trucks in the Rockies. Honestly, it would make more sense in those mountains rather than the entire ####ing state of California.
