Got dispatched this load Saturday with 4 drops 2 n Maryland 2 in Jersey not due till the 15th was told I could start on Monday tho. I’m 2 hours away from 1st place should I stop n start early Monday morning or push closer? Running off caps only drove 3 nhalf today.

So basically the final is most likely due Tuesday. If your first drop allows overnight parking, I'd park there and be able to leave after that drop with maximum hours available.

Early is on time. On time is late. That's my philosophy anywho.

Excellent! Hopefully you'll be able to get 2 deliveries off tomorrow and if the cards fall right a 3rd and get rid of your final or 3rd and final Tuesday early enough to get a reload somewhere, park for a 10 and roll on. The name of the game is get those drops off as early as possible. I do multiple drop loads all the time and love them.
