    You would get the other 2 back in that scenario but you might not have 9 to drive after an 8 hour break. Thats one thing I like about e logs. Takes all the calculating out.

    This will be a good test. I have driven 11 hours with out a 2 hour break during the entire day. I will let you know what happens after 8 hours. Good luck on that arkansas load. It is a good load. They will even make you detach from the trailer and go to sleep in a parking lot. Ask them for the phone number to see if your load is ready. Mine was over 4 hours late from when they said it would be ready.

    Are you talking about loading or unloading in Ar. I am already loaded sitting in Tucumcari NM. Deliver on Saturday.

    Youre good. I was talking about pick up. Their front gate is tight to get on the scale. I use a out of business parking lot across the street to straighten up because I missed it in the dark

    I can see that. The first time I went there it was daylight and I followed an old hand SPCR driver who was washing out right beside me at LA Tank Wash. He also showed me that Ramada Inn.

    They had me scheduled for a 1300 trailer drop and 1700 load pick up Tuesday. I slept at the tank wash and woke up to a puddle of oil under my drive tires. I dropped the tank in early and bobtailed over to the Ontario TA where they took 6 hours to repaire a blown wheel seal.

    Rather than mess around with rush hour traffic I got my pick up rescheduled for 3 AM Wednesday. I have been running on recap minutes heading back only able to run about 9 hours per day. I hate not getting a reset in. It costs me layover pay and I am not the type who enjoys trashing around the truck stop.

    That's cool. Home every night. You like it better than SPCR? Probably about to get busy for construction season.

    It was really funny. After 8 hours last night I picked up 27 minutes. I looked at it for a long time and have no idea how it came up with that.
