Even if we get every driver over to Europe. The distance and number of loads is going to be very hard to meet. We would end up in the 160-170 load area with every single active driver running it and just logging in once a day.

If everyone goes and is hardcore, it is going to take 25 or so fatigue points to bounce your truck back and forth to move loads. Log in and run as much as you can! It is possible to run it, we just need everyone balls out logging in as soon as your fatigue points go down.

and that's exactly what I intend to do.

Ballsy contract but it'll be worth it for us if we meet it.

Oh, I don't think we can meet it by any means, but for the driver this is almost a best case sceneario. The route is $2.44 per mile for me (I have the double trailer endorsement though).

And as for the company, we can take the hit, as long as our stockholders don't run for the hills (don't see this happening, because we've shown about a $10,000 profit everyday for a month).

But, once again, this is a great deal for the individuals, and if you can make it to Europe, it is well worth it.

Yeah when they opened up Europe I had no intention to go over there. The contract was a bit unexpected but I moved anyway and upgraded my truck in the process.

I always go for the highest paying routes and this is by far the craziest amount of money for a run. Got the double trailer too so it pays very well.

ditto for me.

and all of us with double trailer endorsements should help a little toward achieving the goal...
