    OK, so add 1.5 hr for hook, to, drop, fuel that's an additional 32.40, but you would also need to add more time to the equation.

    In order to get delay you would have to give up time first adding even more time to the day.

    I think he also mentioned a TO for a .25
    and that would add up to 1.5 total.

    To be fair to both sides, I would have to say that
    if the TO had been spelled with CAPS then slackdragon
    would have caught it when he read the original post.
    Also if he only runs to the Hub and back, he would not
    think about the TO like you would on a meet run.

    So I would call it a TIE. :biglaugh::biglaugh::hide:

    btw: if running to the Hub and working the dock he
    would also have a drop and a hook, or at the very least
    a drop/hook.

    There are road drivers making that kind of money. A road driver can make $330 plus in 10 hours. That is at least $100 a day more than a local driver on 4/10s. The term city driver really does not fit when your route covers 300 miles. The compensation does seem to be a little lop sided.

    Cody, I've done the math before, the difference would only be a few hundred a week if hourly was allowed to get 50-60 hrs a week like back when, this is no longer the case.

    Personally, I no longer want more than 40 on either side of the fence, that is one thing putting me back to the dock has done for me, I'm done chasing the dollar, time to relax....
