Going for my first 4,000 mile week, tonight at midnight I start out on a 717 mile load and as long as I transflo docs by very early wed morn I’ll have it.. pay week wed-Tuesday with govern speed 68mph... Except for getting caught in one rush hour which wasn’t that bad, Charlotte, everything has gone great while running the loads...downside my recaps after tonight/tmrrw suck, so will have to do 34..

That’s good numbers for seven days, but too bad you’ll need a reset.

Awesome man, me personally, I like hunting down my 70 and bleeding it out, and eventually having to reset. I'll see how things go this coming week if I can do that.

Very good week indeed. My best was about 3700. It takes the cards falling just right to be able to pull it off.

I had a 3400 week going last week until I pulled into Lumber Bridge North Carolina to pick up a load out of the chicken plant. Load planner screwed up and assigned the same load to two different load numbers. Of course I was the one that got there second. Had to turn around and go right back to where I was to start the day. 300 miles out of my way and burned 7 hours off my 70 hour clock. Got caught in Charlotte rush hour... and all seven of those hours were in a constant downpour
