What changes have you witnessed so far due to the ELD mandate?

That is some pretty creative writing if you can show yourself sitting for 36 hours and still be able to roll.
It's not that hard if you keep track of how long it took to go from point to print.....you know kinda like a log book.

No, I get that. I would go back a few days and bump everything closer so I could get enough hours to get home but, A 36 hour reset?
That is a bit much!

Instead of getting home Saturday night show you got home Friday night. Good to roll Sunday night

Or just scribble the last 14 you were off and start a new book.

It takes a little thinking but it can be had if you're careful about fuel scales and tolls

Okay, I follow.
Back in the day we would run like hell and keep the log tight. It got way more loose when we wanted to get home;)
 
Fuel was never a time stamp but it was a location and an on duty flag. It's an art form writing a comic book.

Shouldn't have to be that way. They can take the American rules and shove them up their asses......sideways.

Pretty simple. Don't like the rules, don't go there.
Wait, What? You are American.:confused-96::stare1:

3 of us got hung up until around midnight loading out of Otay Mesa last week.
I asked buddy with the bramd new pete where he was camping for the night.
Buddy says right outside the gate because that's all I can do.

Buddy 2 says, screw that.
I'm limping it down to pilot for some food and a shower.

Couple outlaws right there, Jack.
😁

I didn't say ****...
But I was thinking, there's a casino within 50 miles that has $5 showers, $8 prime rib and $4 well drinks 24 hours a day...
SEEYA!!
🙄

I REFUSE TO LIVE MY LIFE LIKE I'M ON WORK-RELEASE FROM A F'N HALFWAY HOUSE!!!
😠

ELD'S CAN KISS MY ASS!!!
FMCSA CAN KMA!
DOT CAN KMA!
AND ANYBODY WHO DOESN'T LIKE IT CAN KMA!

That is all...
Carry on.

ELD prevented me from making it home tonight. Had to park at 1930 at the end of my 14, only 465 miles from home!

Are you telling us you exercised freedom of choice while in possession of a CDL? :eek:
May you die the death of a thousand slow hangings and may your soul burn in the depths of hell the likes of which are incomprehensible to us mere mortals! :mad-97:

Good Day Sir!! :harumph:

Btw, An envelope of cash is on the way for the last set of “investments.” Your take was $4.27 after I deducted the postage and ugh...nobody suspects a thing. :sneaky:

Paper logs could have prevented this.
