    I used to be fond of that French toast sandwich in the Flying J, but I think it dropped off some. Nowadays I heat up some oatmeal, and get some coffee. On occasion I do like a Waffle House breakfast. Lol...something about hash browns that scattered, covered, diced chunked. There's a few scattered around the country that have truck parking nearby or at the restaurant.

    Sorry Juan, but you need to start thinking in different terms, more miles means more work, you want to work a little less but get more money. More CPM is alright to say you want, but you need to look at it as a whole picture and think percentage.

    As for the trans, don't overthink it, do not even consider it a problem, driving a 13/18 speed is very easy, the 10 speed is just a step below.

    I have a handout I can't post but it is like this -

    I always put the work environment right up there with pay.

    I would take less money for better working conditions;

    better equip, better dispatch people, better freight lanes.

    happy to work there is worth money to me.

    Yep. I used to hit that WH in the pilot in northern Ohio all the time. Any truck stop with a WH or IHOP is my kind of place!
