    just spoke to my old coworker, company got him a brand new truck and he put 300k miles on it in 16 months with being home every weekend.
    He just bought a truck last week, because ELD wont allow him to make as much money as he is used to, being a company driver

    I did 4000 a week with a 67mph truck with drop n hook from Tusla OK to Seattle years ago without a problem. No traffic out there with 75mph speed limits I only stopped to fuel and eat one a day. Not possible doing Illinois or east coast runs with traffic and 45 MPH construction speed limits everywhere.

    Yes if you have bathroom toilet installed instead the driver seat, that would be fine.

    Yes if you don't eat 10 hamburgers a day you don't have to go as much. I use the restroom during my 10 hour break. I also forgot to mention with the big hills and mountains it can push your speed up to 75 MPH for long time out West which makes it doable as well.

    Drove a truck from Atlanta to Chicago Friday night as a sort-of glorified 'hiker'. I only drive maybe 4 or 5 days a month so I can use paper. The driver who quit and left the truck in Atlanta left the tablet switched on and under the seat and I kept hearing a strange musical tone about once a minute. I had no clue what was making the noise. I wanted to smash that thing with a peen hammer lol

    Yeah Chicago Chicago!!!!
    I cannot really defend them White Volvos anymore. I came back this morning from a Texas trip to see that one of their trucks is parked in my spot again. The guy owning the group of trucks has more trucks than leased spots, so his drivers park in my neighboring spot, and think it is all right. That's only possible with their soviet f...ed up Eastern Euro mentality. They should give them a quiz to see if they grasp the concept of private property before granting visas. D a m n me! if I wear those Adidas ##...ing clown pants again!

    Post Scriptum:
    Next truck not a f...ing Volvo either!

    @Tall Joe
    there were more than 100 ethnicities living in SU . They did not share same mentality . Check out who are they. I mean ethnicity.. if they are Slavic and wearing adidas you need to call McCain's or Nuland's office and complain. )))))))))))))
