    I’ve often wondered, when some of these new people show up if it’s just a bored Mod, or worse, Lawrence, just trying to generate traffic.
    Whatever works.

      We separated the gas canister from the sleeper; it runs on diesel and is sealed pretty good. It was somewhat complicated to connect to the tank and also I was short on time. Works great - my driver likes it.

      750 miles per day.
      Very doable in a Sprinter.

      You have been here long enough to know the Law of Expedite Averages ... 3000 in 4 days.. boom sit empty for 4 days ...
      Remember Veteran Vanners look at rate for week ..Not Miles...
      3000 miles x .60 = $1,800..
      2500 miles x .85 = $2125..

      Of course My thinking .. not everyones

      i don't see a problem for 750 a day average...IF one runs into a nest of loads for like that 4 days or so....anything longer then that is starting to wear on a person...just the grind of it...A steady diet of 750's in a row....not so much...IMO

      As an average ... ok fine, but he claims 3000 in 4 days. One does not even have time to poop at 3000 in 4 days.

      as in life when circumstances dictate one has to work a bit harder for that brass ring....you know like working a week of double shifts at a factory when they are shorthanded....we do what we do....Believe me Rags I have been there many times...3,000 in 4 days works...its equal to Laredo and return in 4 days.....1500 up and 1500 down...you do sleep well when you are done...
