I started in Dallas Texas, delivering to Valley View, OH to get live unloaded and dropping the rest off for a relay 37 miles away.

I didn't think I would make it, but really pushed the past two days. The first day I didn't drive as far as I should have due to me having low hours, I parked early when I could have made it another 100-150 miles.

But yesterday I drove 590 miles and today I drove another 525 to stay on track and make my appointment time. I only stopped for my breaks and to fuel otherwise kept on going. Those might not seem like a lot of miles but I like to believe it is when you're governing down to 63MPH. rofl-3.gif

Just glad I made it on time.

Thanks! Yeah it wasn't to bad, I usually get a 1000 mile run either to get me home from the North East or when I'm coming back from my home time, they sent me to First, then picked up a load at the Dallas OC and came to Ohio. I'm sure I'll be heading East from here. rofl-3.gif

Oh well, I just enjoy the longer runs personally.

Kind of, but I was home for my home time which I live in Arkansas.. so they usually send me around the south for a few days before sending me back to the North East. rofl-3.gif

I was assigned a load for 39 miles to a Sam's Club, but it was removed since they didn't have the relay trailer number. Now they gave me a load going to Amsterdam New York to a target DC. I'm fine with the load as I much prefer to do a 500 mile run over a 39 mile run, but of course I would have done either one without a problem.
