I deliver tomorrow morning and just hoping weekend dispatch hooks me up with a nice load after. If they do hook me up then my paycheck will be around 3500 miles. Nothing fun except the paycheck!

Spent 5 hours today getting my load reworked when one of the boards bracing the base broke and part of the load shifted, so I only drove 300 miles instead of the 600 I'd planned...which means tomorrow I'll have to drive 10 hours, leaving 5 hours less to do laundry, shower, and shop at walmart.

What's sad is walmart sounds fun right now. But I met a cool big rig wrecker driver who said he hadn't had anyone happy to see him in a long time, and I talked to some people I hadn't caught up with in a while, so it's all good.

Wow that's good 3500 miles kudos to you now is that hard to get every week is that pretty much the same every week? What I was told 2500 miles was what they told me I'll get weekly.

Easier said than done. Like 6 string always says, location triumphs experience. That job with that kind of pay is rare in my neck of the woods. You were very location because of your location.
