8/6/2015 Mileage: 4889 (0.365 cpm) + Multistop ($30) + Cash flow (-$90) + Canada ($50) = $1,774.47 - 401K: $266.17 + Toll reimbursements: $93.75 Net: $1,082.62 (I had a 1200 mile run that delivered on a Sunday. Trip paperwork has to be submitted by Saturday or you get paid for it the next week, that is why this week's miles are so huge. All of the toll reimbursements are from going into Michigan, Oklahoma. In states that don't have prepass we pay the tolls out of pocket and get reimbursed later.)

8/20/15 Mileage: 1,633 (0.365 cpm) + Short Haul ($20) + Live Load ($20) + Detention ($60) = $716.04 - 401K: $107.40 Net: $370.53

8/27/2015 Mileage: 3964 (0.385) + Multistop ($35) + Detention ($15) = $1576.13 - 401K: $236.42 Net: $869.28

BMI:

Body mass index (BMI)

BMI is a formula that uses weight and height to estimate body fat. For most people, BMI provides a reasonable estimate of body fat. The BMI's biggest weakness is that it doesn't consider individual factors such as bone or muscle mass. BMI may:

  • Underestimate body fat for older adults or other people with low muscle mass
  • Overestimate body fat for people who are very muscular and physically fit

It's quite common, especially for men, to fall into the "overweight" category if you happen to be stronger than average. If you're pretty strong but in good shape then pay no attention.

See, that's what I was worried about, that I wouldn't be able to have that home time option with Roehl, because they don't seem to have drop yards close to my home, at all. :(

There is a dropyard in Springfield, MA. It's a really tight yard, so I'm not sure how many people can have their bobtail parked there at once, but since there is a dropyard in the area it would be worth a shot to look into it.

Bobtail:

"Bobtailing" means you are driving a tractor without a trailer attached.

I am impressed. So far, for "part time" work, you are making a good paycheck. If Roehl, is the company i decide to go to, and I pass muster, I think I would choose the 14/7, mostly because, my wife wants me home as often as possible. The only thing that gets me, is the slip seating. I don't want to be paired with slobs. Also, what happens, if on my day to start, my assigned truck is delayed for whatever reason? do I just sit and wait? And does it count towards my 14, or does my 14 start once i am in the truck, and clock in?

Thanks for posting this.

Stay safe

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

I can't really say much about the pros and cons of slip seating, because I have had the truck all to myself, but if the other driver is delayed in getting to the yard, it shouldn't affect your 14. Your 14 hour clock won't start until you are in the truck and have but yourself on-duty for your pretrip inspection. Also, Roehl has an obligation to do everything they can to get you home on time if you are on one of these fleets and I can tell you that I have ever only been late getting home one time. And that time was not the fault of Roehl, but the fault of a shipper who didn't have a trailer preloaded that they were supposed to. I have spoken to other drivers and like you can read in any trucking forum, in general the hometime is a little iffy. You will get your guaranteed 3 days if you were out for 11, but you might get home a day late depending on freight or your request for hometime might not be approved if you didn't give them the dates in advance enough. But, with the hometime fleet my experience has been that they are pretty good at getting me home.

Shipper:

The customer who is shipping the freight. This is where the driver will pick up a load and then deliver it to the receiver or consignee.

Very good to know, thank you. I'd park the truck at my house if they'd let me! lol
