    Anyone have any experience with this job. Do you stay in the Southeast, are miles fair?

    I am doing that job right now. However, I have only been on it for a little over a month. So far, no complaints about miles, weeks have been 3,100; 3,050; 1,100 (I was off for half this week) and last week was 2,475. To be honest, I have let them know I am good with 2,500 miles (or close), so not sure if that affects what I am planned on or not. I do run a bit outside the SE area, as they have it laid out (FL, GA, SC, NC, VA, TN, AL and MS)...I am headed to Texas for the 5th time. I am told you can turn down loads that leave the area if you want to. I have not turned any down yet, but depending on the destination I may someday.

    How many days are you out? I am told I can elect to stay out ten days or twenty one. Thanks for the info

    I am on the 21 day cycle...by choice. No wife, no kids...just trying to bank cash right now. I stay out as long as I want to, or until I get disgusted with something and want to take some time off. I just came back from a 10 day offtime. Right now my plan is to stay out until the first week of June...but I may change that if I feel like I need to take off before that. My understanding is that the shorter time out (10 day) pays less than the 21 day option, also.
