I've been running super hard these past 2 days. Yesterday I ran a personal best 640 miles and today I topped that by running 648. In a governed 58/62 truck.

How many miles have you ran in a shift?

Like you 648 but while my truck is supposed to be 60/62 it's only running 58/60.

Adam B don't let anyone rain on your parade. You did good and didn't hit anything!

Rest easy.

Damn thought I was doing good at 550ish at 58/62. But I run 60 mostly. And I have spent most of my first month in Tennessee.

642 in a 68 mph truck going through PA into upstate NY, and back down into PA. It's one of our longer schedule runs. Usually have about 40 minutes of drive time left after the run is over. Lots of hills to pull.

692 Speed limited to 70. From Han**** WI to Jackson OH. Rolled into the truck stop with 6 minutes left on my clock.

I just posted this morning about this lol. I ran 670 miles yesterday governed at 62. 10:49 drive time.

Prior to that, 664 was my best.

Anything over 600 is a great day in a governed truck.

Solo I did 680. Last week I went to the very last couple minutes and got to 702 since I have a team mate now. No parking woes lol
