    As of today, I have had this wonderful piece of equipment 15 weeks. If you add up what little hometime I've taken, with the total number of days of breakdown time. I have had roughly 13 1/2 weeks of productivity. In that time, I have managed to turn just under 41,800 odometer miles. No wonder my truck is breaking down so much. This is as hard as we use to run back in the days of the 'load select' system which was before 'The Wreck' down in FL where that driver killed that minivan full of kids, and they changed to the system and nanny equipment we have today.

    Lol and here I am having not broken 10K in a month (my choice) this year. I hope you’re seeing the money you have targeted given the PIA that you’re stuck driving. All the best dude.

    All I need for my yearly raise is 36,355 miles by my anniversary date which is mid October. Right now, even with these last few weeks of regular shop visits, I am still on target to hit 130-135,000 miles. Should be in the upper $80k range including bonus money. The wife said she already has most of the bills payed for May. I haven't heard her say we're that far ahead for a long time

    Why don’t you just go home for about a week and enjoy your time away from that pos truck? I know you say you are just venting most of the time when you are having issues with your truck. Most people’s head would explode if they dealt with the issues you have had. If you take more than a couple of days off you can recharge and get back at it!

    They’re probably hoping you come back at them and say you wanna do another 50, since you get out there and get after it and they don’t hafta worry about you.
     
    Jarhed1964 and Wasted Thyme Thank this.

    I like the part where they say “will attempt to bring you home in 6 days”. Wow how big of them…

    And I am delivering in Denver this evening, then pu a load in Golden going to Omaha for Thursday.

    I heard from Deland about the messages I sent about my truck's latest shop no-fix. He said he is exploring other options...so, who knows, I may be back in the Omaha shop, or in the Lincoln shop...or no shop at all until it dies on the side of the road...or, a different truck (please not another Junk-liner)
