    I was in the midwest last week moving totes to farmers, processors and a crop duster shop. Best work. Short trips easy load/unload and the money was better than average. Farmers are nice. Wish I could do that all the time

    This starts in eastern Ohio. Goes through West Virginia to Suffolk va to in load and reload then up past dc through pa oh and Indiana to Chicago where I unloaded this morning. Over to Aurora IL for a quick drop and hook and ends at the j just west of Indianapolis. Truck is a 579 auto truck governed at 64 mph average weight is 77k

    Tomorrow I have 496 miles to drive and 9 hours and 52 minutes to get from here to winston Salem nc. Gonna have to keep the door shut to make that happen with the West Virginia mountains in my way.

    I did about 500 miles today from NorCal to Aurora Oregon just south of Portland. I have a 43,000 pound load, a lot of hills, and rarely got over 60 mph. Took me 10.5 hours of driving plus my 30 minute break. Had I been in one of the more flat western states going 75, it would have been a much shorter trip.
