I am proud of myself. I did 645 (644.6) miles today. My truck is governed at 63 mph. Not too shabby I think.

Nice!

It takes endurance, doesn't it? It's taken me a while to build up a tolerance for days like that. Way ta go.

Nice new word Sue D. .... "Fexcellent." Quite creative.

What desolate stretch of Interstste were you traveling to be able to pull that fexcellent feat. About the only time I was able to accomplish 625 miles or so was I-10 heading from Tucson, AZ towards Houston.

Sounds like a good day for making money. Albeit a tiresome one. Longest single day run I've had was 683.8miles in 10hours 58 min on the clock governed at 63 as well.. Made it from Nashville to Dallas. Just in time to get the last open spot at the pilot. Construction through memphis, little rock and texarkana just about ruined my plan A that day.

703 today. Two trips through Denver included in that. Started in Cheyenne went to Colorado Springs, dropped the empty grabbed the loaded trailer, secured the load and now sitting at the Sheridan POE. Ungoverned truck though.

If the roads cooperate tomorrow I will be back here tomorrow night. Snowing in Montana though.

I isn't have time. I made it to Sysco with 11 mins on my 11 hour. Cutting it a little close to comfort.
