    Now, i have to say that:
    1) i had to take the entire month of April off do deal with some family issues. So the yearly gross would have been 43-44K-ish instead.

    2) i have another part-time gig on the weekends--an easy drop and hook gig so my real year end gross is a little higher as well. Will post that check stub as well asap.

    $18.70/hr Overtime after 8 or 40.

    Any questions, feel free to ask.

    We just did Diad training on HOS while having driving or non driving side jobs. Don't get yourself hung.

    Why would someone want to post their check stub?

    This latest check is not a good indication of what i make per week on average because we had a snow day and thus only worked 4 days that week.

    Gotta watch the hours of service if you are a driver.
    Even being paid for flipping burgers at Mickey Dees on the weekends counts.

    My latest check is not a good example of what i make per week---i cashed out all of my vacation pay. Can you blame me? So the check gross was over $2000. So i decided not to post it. Will resume post next week.

    Didn't get tipped this week even though had at least 4-5 residentials.

    The other thing last week was i forgot to stop 15-50 feet at a RR crossing and cross in 1st gear as i had about 8,000lbs of hazmat.

    Not real happy with the trucks----Volvos and international 9300's. i mean they run well, but i just don't dig the feel of them.

    i switched to linehaul. i love this gig and i think it's one of the best jobs ever----EXCEPT the nighttime hours. And anyone thinking of doing linehaul or is ON linehaul now really needs to think about this. i think this is the most important aspect of the job and if you don't get enough sleep it's just not going to work out.

    We unfortunately lost a driver this past tuesday. Chicago area.

    i think i will switch back to daytime P+D and take the lower pay, annoying customers etc. The new bid comes up in less than a month and i probably won't keep it anyways as i'm low on seniority. But i'm not really complaining----Even with the pay cut, 65K back down to 50 ish.

    However, if i can find a daytime linehaul run i would be hell-bent on trying to get it.
