didn't relise how far

yesterday i had a run into the fingerlakes region of ney york. 607 mile round trip with 3 stops.i didn't relise how far out i actually got after my last stop. from outside syracuse to ridgeway befor i ran out of driving hours.
i had 4 hours and 45 minutes, my boss drove to ridgeway to finish out my run. another half hour drive and i would have made it on my own.

if you bought it, a trucker brought it

Re: didn't relise how far

actually we have runs that are planned to layover. this is one that can go either way. i unloaded fast so had time to make it within a half hour of dubois. if that close they will send someone for you. between 580 and 610 miles are the close ones, depends on how fast you get offloaded. lastweekend was a 900+, wasn't no way

Wouldn`t a layover be more relaxing and pay the same or more? I would choose that if the case. After 23 years of a CDL, I wouldn`t hurry for any company. I just wish I could still do it. I am losing my CDL do to a serious neck injury

Re: didn't relise how far

actually jack its the same pay and i was home for a run today rather than diving half the day away. right now they are in full blown get them home mode. next month they have 60 more stores they have to deliver. cripes jack if you can still drive they probably would hire you
