My last round trip started on 15 April and I'm not home yet but I will be later tonight. I've been out 11 days and my paid miles are 4682. Actual miles will be about 83 more (4765 total) by the time I get home.

The next two days I'm off to reset my clock and I will do it again two more times so I can have Memorial weekend off and a couple other days so I can get my DOT physical done by the 1st.

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.

I did indeed run out the 70 lol, had like 1.16 on it. It worked out great anyway because I was able to split the load here at my home terminal and then get the truck into the shop today. Got new tires all the way around on the truck and a safety inspection and APU oil change and inspection on that too.

Since it was close enough to my pre scheduled home time , I opted to take it early and head back out this weekend…..clean undies and all that lol…..

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.

APU:

Auxiliary Power Unit

On tractor trailers, and APU is a small diesel engine that powers a heat and air conditioning unit while charging the truck's main batteries at the same time. This allows the driver to remain comfortable in the cab and have access to electric power without running the main truck engine.

Having an APU helps save money in fuel costs and saves wear and tear on the main engine, though they tend to be expensive to install and maintain. Therefore only a very small percentage of the trucks on the road today come equipped with an APU.

Nice job keeping them all pretty close, do you always try to stay under 9hrs a day?

Heres mine I did well this week staying somewhat even.
