    Nobody seems to add something that's important to consider when discussing pay rate for line haul: we also get paid for the hooks, drops, and fueling. Taking them deals into account, I'm making exactly 3 cents per mile extra. So, with the raise next month my actual pay will be .545 per mile. I've already had to raise the amount I'm contributing to my 401k cuz I'm seeing too much $pare change every month. In September I'll have to increase my 401k contributions yet again to keep from paying more income tax--which is throwing money away to Uncle Sam!

    Drop & Hooks: Just make sure (Drivers) you put the right amount drop & hooks, claim it right or you may be out of a job. Drivers have been firied claiming too many drop & hooks, Company checks on this!!!! Watch your back!!! One more thing, if you meet with somebody on a turn, you can not claim any drop & hooks. Just a note to some drivers, hate for you (Drivers) to lose $70,000. year job.

    Good point! Back when I first began with OD I heard about a driver padding his pay that way. The guy was a certifiable moron to begin with. I could not understand how somebody like he could be working for this company! Well, needless to say, he wasn't around very long. Nowadays, especially, you've got to be an idiot to do anything that puts your job at risk here! And I honestly haven't seen any more of his sort at OD since.
