I would've had maybe 5 minutes on my clock when I arrived. Not enough for On Duty-Unloading or vehicle inspection. So my figuring was correct.

Great job! For future reference as long as you communicate with dispatch if you would have been late it wouldn't be your fault or held against you at most companies.

Also, you can remain on duty after your 14 or 70 hour clocks are up. You just can not drive anymore until you take the required break (10/34) or have your recaps come back.

Has anybody been inspected after editing their logs this way? I rarely need to make edits in my gig and when I do they're not used in this same manner. We all find ways of skirting around the rules, I'm just curious if DOT has hassled anyone over it. Some days it's hard enough remembering what happened the day prior and technically by certifying your logs you're saying that they are correct.

Rob T. ~ Is all okay??? Unless I've MISSED something... you seem to not have posted lately. Our 'close knit' community is MISSING you, up in here! In actuality, the post that I've 'tagged' you in (lol...) and I figured you of all people can help with, is directly related to THIS thread, haha!

Think you could show up, and answer our new member? Nobody's replied, and I'm really not well versed in HOS vs. Air Miles. I do good keeping Tom on the up & up!

Let's see if I can 'cross post' these threads, without messing up in a huge way;

All is well on my end just busy. Couple months ago we brought another puppy (pictured above....siberian husky/German shepherd mix...a shepsky) home so we've been working on training her and keeping the other 2 big dogs from getting 2 hyped up. 2 yr old is great Pyrenees/newfoundland mix, 3 yr old is great Pyrenees/springer mix both about 80 pounds.

Weather's been nice so getting lots of projects done. Got 3 big trees I gotta take down, shopping around for new windows and helping get the wife's garden up and going. Somehow find time for the kids and sleep with everything else going on. I've been exercising to get some of the weight off that I gained after leaving PFG but that's been neglected the past few weeks unfortunately.

I still pop in to read but don't comment as frequently, I just haven't had the time. I used to take advantage of choosing routes with a backhaul I can sit for a couple hours but those stops have actually had their crap together lately and I've been needing to actually drive more miles to get my hours in. Yeaaah...I'm hitting about 1800 miles a week in my 4 days I'd say this trucking thing is getting pretty serious rofl-3.gif

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

Rob T., thanks man!

Hay, 450 miles a day ain't bad, bro!! Sometimes that's a FULL DAY for Tomskey, too! LOL!

Wow, a Pyrenees?!?!? 'AND' a Husky ?!?!? You BRAVE young soul, you, hahaha!! Our 'pittie' Roo is almost 9, and getting lazy to the point of annoying! Still, Idk about a new puppy... yet!

Thanks for jumping in, and helping re: the HOS stuff; you're the 'go to' guy, when it comes to the local(ish) intrastate stuff, man! Stop back more, as you can. Tom's been 'so close' to the air miles dealio, but there's always at least ONE OUTLIER in the week that kicks that!

I get it,though~ Just know you've been missed!

Best always; awesome fam, dude! Yeppers, 4 leggers are better'n 4 wheelers, anyday!
