    So while your " relieved from duty" while waiting to load/unload,are you free to leave your trk and/or the shipper/ recievers' property to pursue your one interests or do you have to "jump" back on duty as soon as your trailer is ready?

    It can be done even in a 60 mph trk in a 7 day period but not feasible week after week.

    Well then you are my hero too. I'd hate to drive that many miles to earn a check.

    Who needs vacation anyway? We'll have plenty of time off when we're dead.
