    I do I do!! :D
    That's why I'm still home. Figure I averaged 804.8 mile a day my last 5 days out. Wait'n on the log book to catch it's breath.. lol :eek:

    The sad part is most hands used to push 800-900 a day for weeks on end before all this gov't "intervention".. :rolleyes: Either that or I'm get'n suckered by too many lunch counter/cb Rambo's.? Lol

    I usually get lucky when something bad happens. Last time I blew a trailer tire I was less than a mile from the truck stop exit and about 2 miles from the coop this time so I limped it there trying not to push more than 10-15psi. When the pump took a dump on the 93 I was 45 min away and had dad bring down the other truck and still made the appointment on time

    And you are being suckered.
    all except the speed freaks and the heros running 80mph with 55mph speed limits can do up to about 650 miles with a few bumps to 750 or so once in a while.

    Mostly right. But I knew LTL guys in 67 mph trucks doing 6-700 a night every night in the early 2000's. But they dropped a suitcase and the skate case radio in the truck and rolled. Hardly fueled or hooked a trailer. Only bumped freight on a closed terminals.

    I know one LTL that's not laying down the miles. I've got two more implements coming out of Memphis- 14 days so far and just left Boise headed for Spokane last night, then to Lewiston and then liftgate to me. With fuel prices maybe they're dragging them down the shoulder on pallet jacks.
