    I actually didn’t even think about that. I meant in lost revenue/profit.

    Ahh ok Lol minus a truck for 6wk figure; ~5200 gross what the other truck was avg the last 6 weeks. So yea a decent chunk for stupidity o_O

    Wish it would of been at the beginning of the plandemic not during middle of the best rates we've seen in 2 yrs.

    Im gonna try some new lanes now that going to the Midwest is half decent and coming back this ways on fire

    Capacity is obviously still low in the communist state which everybody loves to hate. How else can you explain why $4 per mile loads aren't getting covered?

    Here is a reefer load on Uber in the bay area heading to WA for $3.98 per mile on 740 miles with a scheduled PU time in 15 minutes from now. If I wasn't home on a reset, I would probably have grabbed it, but there are loads like this and some much better out of the bay area every day. I hope this market lasts for a while. Greed it a good thing.

    I used to be completely crazy and do very dangerous things but as I got more into my late 20’s and early 30’s things just sort of changed when you have more to lose and a lot of responsibility. I still am not lame by any means but much more so then I used to be! lol.

    Glad your getting back in the saddle here soon.

    Yeah, there's 3 more right here that I can assure you a guy could squeeze the broker for a couple hundred more to get $4.00 a mile.

    Edit: Can't get screenshot to upload. Bad area connect
