    Im in Texas lol. Here it's just easier cause of all the freight with backhauls etc. We have some traffic that gets bad in metros but still don't do too bad as long as we don't sit at the vendors or DC. If you work a 5/2 5/3 in Texas don't extend one single day and not making at least 84k you're not even trying IMO

    Ask tester if he wants that. Ours didn't. No stopping in traveled portion of roadway without a reason.

    Trying to catch up to you with that $412 ADP. I thought I was doing it right with my $395 ADP. Shoot, I need to quit slacking off on my go home day.

    Yeah I ain't working 14hrs on my go home day!! I don't even like working 12. 10 is about max for me I show less hrs on purpose cause I'm not getting stuck out for an extra night. 60-63hrs is plenty.
    I had to work 14 today cause I got stuck at grocery dc waiting on a load for 4hrs gee sooo much funnnn!! ;(

    is your grocery dc in temple,
    Its a nice country area;
    But i think wm uses swift or an outside carrier
    I know a driver at av that works 6 days& he makes about 1800 a week
    & he uses all the time he can on his 14 hours
    He eventually got burned out from that & took some time off
    Last time i talked to him ; he said he was going to transfer
