Rates are low so sometimes you just have to tell the agent NO

    Back when I was running for mileage pay 150k was a easy year. I just broke 61k last year.

    I only made the statement about the miles I’ve driven as a response to the guy that didn’t believe I was a driver.
    As Walter Brennan once said, “ no brag, just fact”.
    I have a cousin with Werner that has 6 million.
    I don’t plan on catching him, nor do I want to.

    If you are a driver for someone else you have little control of anything and certainly not detention pay.

    If you bid the loads and negotiate and sign the rate cons you have control of everything, including detention. Does that mean it's a cakewalk for owners? No, but we are in control and choose to accept, negotiate or walk.

    Interesting. So instead of deadheading out you have them stay at home and wait for a load? It's not like it would pay much anyway
