My Quallcom HOS shows 6:53 hours left on my seventy. I will use about three of that today for a delivery locally. I am currently in sleeper with 14 left on 14 and 11 on 11. It shows 5:45 to be gained. When do I gain those hours? My company offered a 350 mile load to get me home. I calculated that would take 9-10 hours, load, scale, drive CA 55mph, unload, then drive to terminal. Is there any way this would work? I thought about PC from receiver to terminal , but that my take over one hour in LA area.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

The recap hours (5:45 gained) are yours after midnight. Note this gain has no relation to your HOS hours (14 shift or 11 driving)

The recap hours are more like your payday: regardless how much money (hours) you have on hand now, you'll get "paid" at midnight. Then these new hours can then fit into your current daily hours.

Midnight of the time zone your home terminal is in. So with the 6:53 you currently have and the 5:45 you will gain at midnight (terminal time zone) you will have 12:38 on your 70 MINUS whatever you use today for the local delivery.

Say it takes 10 hours to get home. Load and scale are NOT driving hours but your 14 doesn't get extended by the incoming recap hours.

14-3=11 left on your shift. The 14 starts on your pretrip, the local delivery eats 3. So by the shift clock you have 10 left. That's the shift clock, the recap does not extend that.

If you get close to home and run out of time, maybe someone can come meet you at a truck stop.

That's an interesting question. Is there anything in the HOS rules that says driving more than 1 hour of PC is illegal, or is that up to each company to set the limit?

I once used more than an hour PC and got a message about it on my QC. It may have switched me to drive line too. I forget. This was before we switched to ELD so my logs adviser was able to fix it. I remember her saying that she could fix it because I was clearly not advancing a load.

If Jim's company granted him permission to drive from his delivery to his terminal , would that be legal?

So am I.

Since you're not the one paying my tickets for obeying the posted traffic control device, what's your point?

Big T, I made a delivery in Phoenix, then used the remaining hours of my 70 and recap hours to pick up a load in Yuma, AZ and deliver to Santa Fe Springs, CA which got me home. Nice meeting you. Hopefully, I will be seeing you at the terminal , and without wildfire smoke chocking both of us.
