    It's a good system that we have now BUT why is it so damn hard to find out where your at on your 70 hrs ?
    Navigation sucks bad. All the pay components are tough to look at when your trip is over.
    Ok maybe the system sucks :)

    I used PeopleNet for 2.5 years, it takes some getting used to, XATA was the same thing when I went to Sysco, I wouldn't have it any other way, I hope I never see a paper log again ;)

    Hit "Home" (Top upper left), the "log" (on some screens it will say E driver logs). The inspection screen should pop up and then on the left of screen should be a 7 day button. You can then scroll back through each day manually if you wish.

    Ok here it goes
    We have set runs that go all over. Some are layover runs. We probably have 50+ set runs that we bid on for so many months at a time. These set runs will run till September.
    On layover runs we stay close to one of our PEC centers (or try to) and a senior driver or a owner operator will bring us our second day trailer while we are at the hotel

    So what my run is. Saturday I run down to Joplin area. (Miami, Grove, Fayetteville, Lowell, Springfield.. ETC are considered Joplin area) so I drive from Topeka and unload drop my trailer at Joplin PEC center bobtail to hotel. In a perfect world my 2nd trailer is there right after my 10 is up (LOL) that's the theory anyway. Unload 2nd trailer and go home. So what I work is Saturday/ Sunday. Off Monday. Work Tuesday and Wednesday off Thursday and Friday.
    Clear as mud ? :)

    Makes perfect sense to me Matt, I'm glad you got something steady, that way you will know when you will be off with your family, you can plan stuff a little better now, I know how much the wife and kiddos mean to you.

    I love reading these frito threads. I plan on moving back down to Houston in August. The traffic center down there always has a position open for OTR driver. I really want it!!! But I don't want to move without having a job lined up first. It says you must live 30 miles away. I'm 200 miles away right now so I'm scared if I apply they will just throw my application out since I'm not 30 miles away (yet).

    Ok I will, thanks. I just hope that doesn't keep me from getting an interview. That sounds like a job I'd really like to have. Double what i'm making now.

    Good luck. I know for me it did double my pay. Hope that's the same for you down south. I think I'm pretty lucky to be from such a large traffic center.
