It sometimes seems shorter, and sometimes seems like forever.

102,000 miles. Not bad for a regional hourly driver.

I celebrated with a 16 hour day yesterday. Was the 12th truck in line at 1500 for a load of toilet paper. Finally got a door at 1100 with 27 trucks behind me, loaded at 0200. PC to truck stop. Waiting for someone to take the load from here, as I have to reset. Used my 70 in 5 days, mostly driving until yesterday.

Regional Route

Usually refers to a driver hauling freight within one particular region of the country. You might be in the "Southeast Regional Division" or "Midwest Regional". Regional route drivers often get home on the weekends which is one of the main appeals for this type of route.

Congratulations Grumpy! Isn't amazing when you look back back at the year and see how much you have accomplished and it only seems like you just started yesterday. Keep the wheels turning and the shinny side up my friend. Again congratulations on your milestone.

Wow, what a WAY to ring in the 'ONE YEAR' mark, huh?!?!? At least you get paid hourly; haha! Just wondering where you picked up at, if you don't mind... give you a reason to stop back here, anyway...we MISS YOU POSTING~!!!

Well, enjoy your 34 where ever you are, and :

It's an amazing time to take the usual stock in acknowledging a milestone. Be safe and well out there as the next year rolls underway.
