The biggest profits are found when doing the shortest runs possible, with the highest bonus, so if a specific cargo has a $500 bonus, find the shortest run possible for that cargo. Also consider the return run, the ppm of the run plus the ppm for the return trip divided by 2 is more important than the ppm of a single run.

I try and refill on-route: prices like $1.85 to $2.05 really help (compared to $3.00 some places on route).

With tickets there seems to be a bug. I noticed when I push on 1 more past 11-points to finish the route, when it processes it displays the destination city as usual. However, when driving the next route (after rest time) it says I received a HOS ticket which needs to be paid before I can drive. Got this even when turn 12 had only 8 miles to go (what are the chances!) Very annoying.

I just got a new truck- it's AWESOME!!!! And though I usually stick to short runs, I just ran a 1300 mile trip that netted $1800. Not too shabby!

I love going 68 MPH in a 65 zone.

Brrmp Brrmp!

I think that we should accept other drivers. The more drivers that we have the more chance that we could do contracts. Also, are stock would probably go up (assuming that the new drivers would buy stocks). We should also think about buying more terminals. My vote would be for Dallas or Jacksonville. I notice that they are on the better cargo list allot.

That is a good idea. My original vote was no, because I think we should be inclusive because most of the people on trukz are dinks.
