I was a special exception. I worked 3-4 "days". I usually started around noon and worked till 00:00-01:00. Home after 12-14 hours. I worked Sat, Sun Mon and occasionally a weds or Thursday. I was classified as a "local" driver, so I got paid mileage plus load pay and quarterly bonuses. Saturday & Sun I only did x-town's. Mon & another weekday was usually either local or Iowa. As a local driver would make extra money running to Iowa since it was "outside" my area. I'm not sure I could get away with what I did then today.
