    Hey guys, I’m pretty sure it probably was discussed, but had a quick question.
    IM new to trucking and wanted to keep track of all miles driven throughout my trucking years as I embark to the journey. I was wondering is there an official app or a journal or some sort of way to keep track of all your miles driven, would it be considered as a résumé for trucks or track record is it necessary. I’m aware of the ELD but I’m sure that’s just for company to company if I’m a company driver.

    I write on paper, the odometer at each state line and wherever I stop.

    Nothing official I know of other than your paycheck, if it lists miles driven during the pay period, or you own personal records. A rule of thumb if you stay busy is 2,500 miles per week, 10,000 miles per month, 100k-120k per year.

    You can use Google Sheets, a free online spreadsheet, that is accessible by any internet device.

    Odometer beginning and ending

    For instance. I drive a truck for the first time. Odometer reads 100k. When I'm done with the truck. It reads 350k.

    I've driven that truck 250k.

    If you switch trucks..You'll have a lot more readings to write down.

    There's no need to keep track of daily miles or whatever when you're in the same truck.

    And if your like me. Weekly miles. As my truck gets used on the weekends when I'm not working.
