    Not much to write about running linehaul I guess....If I had started a thread about a linehaul job I was on, 6 out of the 7days a week would have been about waiting for the phone to ring while on the extraboard..lol

    Lol. Wait by the phone then hurry to work and wait on the bench. I still wouldn't trade it for anything else in the trucking world

    To me line would get a little boring running the same turn 5 nights a week. City is obviously more grunt work bumping docks, signing bills and humping pallets around, but every day kinda takes on a life of its own similar to OTR.

    You can do different runs if you stay on extra board. I like doin a 500+ mile run out and layover then come back. Makes the week fly by. It's not as bad as doin a same day turn. A same run, 1 day turn, 5 days a week would get old to me.
