    You know the wind is strong when you feel like you are in a boat out in the ocean while parked.

    Wind is gusting 50+mph here in Rawlins, WY.

    And that's how you use your 70. Still running recaps and that mintue left is after pre trip, drive, and post trip. Started with about 7hrs 45min available.

    Apparently we are running out of people to operate big expensive things....

    Wishful thinking of course...on my 34 due to inefficient hour management....very sad settlement incoming.

    I think it started the minute I left my house with my first run to Kansas...should have attempted to drop it in Sapulpa, OK. Would a 41 work if they felt like it? I didn't try. I sat a day plus on that load. My hour roll overs reflect my decision making out of the gate. A 700 dollar week, preceded by a 900 dollar week.
     
    MachoCyclone Thanks this.

    I would have been sending that 41 the moment I sent the loaded call.

    On the other hand, Sapulpa has been a black hole for trucks lately. Everyone is going there for work to be done (sometimes with a 2-3 day wait time) and refusing a free rental. Then they sit around the yard and motel complaining about not making any money.

    So, the office has been trying to avoid using Sapulpa as a drop location because of that.

    My load to Clarksville has been reschuled 2 days later so they asked me to come to Sapulpa. Icy roads now, I think I will just finish the load to Clarksville. Nice lazy pace is nice for a change.

    Refusing a rental? That's not a shocking decision. My truck is both my workplace and my home on the road. It's lived in deeply.

    My 900 dollar week was a 3200 mile week with 314 expenses. Sadly, I'm still in the hole on my maintenance account. It seems like I've lived there out of the gate.
