After the initial bedbug fiasco, I finally finished a full week running solo, hit 2300 miles.

I want more. I love it out here. I want to see more places. Granted, I'd like to have time to experience places too, but I can do that later after I've run hard and earned some money.

Awesome to hear, pace yourself and just enjoy the process. Some weeks are amazing and some you'll want to pack your bags and quit. If you ever find yourself with enough free time get a lyft or uber and check some places out. So far I have been to a concert and a baseball game. Keep it between the mayo and the mustard!

Congratulations. As you get better at managing your clock you will be able to find time to do things. Find interesting places to take your 30. You can run your clock out every day or decide to start at the same time every day and dive for 8 to 10 hours and have a longer break. Of course there are always days you have to change it all done to get the job done. Also, you are still in the process of proving yourself to dispatch. This is a very fluid career. Good luck. Keep up the good work.
