    I was looking at CH Robinson shorter hauls... there is something I could grab up to 250 miles that would pay $900-1000 and then a return load that delivers closer to Green Bay, WI for $1200-1400, with early Monday delivery.
    BUT...
    I don't know...I feel comfy at home. I think I'll have a drink, watch some Netflix and chill...until Monday.

    I changed my middle name to Scooter.

    Net result = .50 per mile increase. ;)

    I indeed saw $2000/$1000 (back haul) combinations today, to Cleveland OH and back to IL but by the time I analyzed and mulled over it, the loads were gone...especially Chicago outbound.
    Well, spot market ain't chess game to think long before you move, and a load board ain't a chess board.
    Look at me...the smart arse! LOL

    Dang, you went from $5.50 a mile average to $6.00 from that simple change? :cool:

    You know me, always pulling out all the stops. :D

    It’s wild sometimes what small tweaks can do, even changing your name. ;)
