    How are they getting traction with that? I’m up to 60 cpm to pull a conestoga and can’t even get an app.

    DH is what I Specialized in, more empty miles than loaded last year, but I managed to survive.
    but that JCT $1.00 for all book miles is tempting, probably average about.85 for actual miles plus getting to put up with all the grocery warehouses, sweet deal.
    Maybe Blair would want to follow me over to jct.

    You can always go to one of the other megas for 1.35/mile and run 3,000 or more a week and think you’ve hit the lottery.

    Well. I just finished a 5200 mile trip. Took 10 days with a 34 included.

    Netted $7500. We are all business men here so everyone understands the term net.

    It's not B&G money, but it's a lot better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick.
