    So for you non-cynical types, my new company has an account across the street from Miller in Irwindale, and was there friday and noticed 3 millis trucks sitting at the brewery, so looks like you guys are running more than beer stabilizer from jersey out there now.

    On the miles side, after doing my taxes for last year 9 months was with Millis still, I can say I was on pace to make 45k if i had stayed the rest of the year, that was with going home 3 days every other week.

    My last 4 weeks since home time have been 2249 (2 days at KW), 3002, 2815 (lost a day for snow, and had a load of pallets rejected for being too wet), 3154 (still might have another load this week, dropping in Trenton tomorrow). I'm usually right around 3k a week.

    I don't run crazy hours, usually start around 6 and run to 5 or 6 in the evening. I don't push it in the snow. I take whatever Marco gives me and get it there on time and in good shape. I never call him on the phone and pretty much only message when absolutely necessary.

    I think a lot of this variation amongst drivers has to do not only with personal performance/attitude but dispatcher. Not all dispatchers are created equally, it's just a roll of the dice when you get started as to wether or not you end up with somebody good. Those of you with crappy miles and that never get home on time obviously have a less than stellar dispatcher. I have been late to the house once, and that was when I switched from Jay to Marco when they shuffled up there.

    Haha. Well fingers crossed, haven't been towed since I came out of the house last time. I think I'm about due though. Been far too long since I've been to KW.

    Well I figure it will finally get fixed right about 2 days before they trade it in. So unless you start seeing new trucks up there in BRF just assume it's still screwed.

    ### kisser is a term used by people who do not perform to the standards of others. Use of this term helps them feel better about their sub standard performance.
