For those of us who have never done it I found an excellent video on it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xjQmSMvBgV8&ab_channel=TruckingMadeSuccessful

I know of a company that has their drivers out on average 10 days followed by 4 days home time. I'm guessing they are probably doing this. I found some older threads on this topic and I read somebody used it to drive 75 days straight? I'd be going crazy stuck in the truck that long.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

That was probably me. I have actually gone over 90 days before. Stuck on the truck? Nonsense. Try doing 159 days straight at sea without a port call. Did that too in the USN.

I don't know how you don't get burned out. Do you just love driving that much? I only drive local but the most consecutive days I have had is driving is 19 and I was really ready for some days out of the truck after that. Do you stay at the terminal or motel some nights to at least take a break from that part of it? You are the ironman of trucking.

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.
