    Yes those were and seems like I still have a pass for those old days , I don't know how we do it some times but yet it always gets done.
    I probably won't ever say my total mileage in a straight shot but I will say that I have seen the sun rise and set twice before sleeping.
    It takes alot of coffee and thats OK because I love my coffee!

    900 miles is a long day for sure man !

    When I ran west coast , I did 1050 a day and still got 7 hours of sleeps every night.
    Loaded Friday in Avondale PA and was sitting in LA Monday morning.

    I look back now and think man , that's nothing.

    Yeah , it's still going on.
    I haven't touched a log book in over a year , I haven't been in a scale in about the same time. I run all of them and they seem to not even care.

    It's been a blast and lots of fun. I am definitely getting tired though. Lol

    If talking hours driven? The trainer I had with CR England had me drive 15 hours straight. The fellow he picked up to ride with us drove 21 hours because Roy M didnt want to get out of the bed.

    I used to hook my transmission up to a propeller in Long Beach and sail to the Philippines in about 5 hours, reload and head to Singapore, then back to Long Beach and grab a nap before starting the whole thing over again

    What do you haul and how do you qualify for that covid relief? That sounds like fun.
