    I would have gotten 10 more at midnight. But I think in a day or 2 I would gain nothing. So within the next couple days I would have had to take one. Not so upset on this one lol

    Once you're out of training and start team driving try and run only 9 hours a day. That way you and your co driver never run out of hours. Me and my co driver do that all the time and never had to take a reset. It might be hard at first because your sleep cycle will get really messed up doing that.

    Nothing really...peak season is over. Freight is still pretty good on the reefer side however.

    Looking forward to my peak bonus paycheck though

    Good to hear you survived the training experience. Now here comes phase 2. Just remember to take it slow at first and don't forget anything. Don't feel pressured to do everything in a hurry. After a while the job will be an everyday routine and you'll get better day by day. Good luck

    Been driving for a while. For some reason something always happens on Mondays. Gives a new meaning to "case of the Mondays". 2 times truck was in the shop for minor stuff. One time we were stuck in WY with 80 shut down. It's like ####, I can't get a full paycheck. Still keeping my head up and happy to be driving. I hope once I'm done with 90 I have a shot at a regional or dedicated. It's not so bad being out here but I got to tell you once you get home for a few days. To walk out the door from my Wife/dog/cat again for another month or more is rough. But again happy for the opportunity but just hope to get some stability in miles. I'm going to keep it going as long as it takes to find my nitch in the system here Lol

    Is that 700 dollar a week guarantee helping out any? Those don't pay out until 2 weeks after though. I feel you about the shutdowns. our last load from Pennsylvania to Sacramento was late because of the snowstorm in ohio over the weekend.

    How is your co driver? I know my first co driver didn't turn out too well
