My internet crapped out for a minute and all I could think of was how I was going to get my route finished on time!

How often do you get busted for going over your HOS? I usually go to 12 fp to finish a route, haven't pushed it any further and haven't been busted yet.

I got in a wreck at 11 hos, but no tickets. when I get to 10 I usually refill and repair if needed.

Can't have two people play from the same IP.


Also for new players I suggest you start out doing short hauls to begin with. I started with a Long route, CA to TX. It'll take me a while to get there.

Yeah, i found that out too. you actually have to calculate how long it will take you to get the long distances.

When your truck only goes, say, 45mph. there's simply no way to go the long distances in the times it allows, without being at 17fp the whole way.

Been smooth driving for quick runs from ny to the southeast. the routes are short enough for time but long enough to be worth a little $$$. About to go on number 3.. ?... 4.... whatevz. I'm a total "expert"

Open to tips and tricks tho...

Did you do the $2000 bonus yet? You just need to post a link somewhere, basically. Super easy.

I had a big red alert for it - can't find a link now that I've already done it. Sorry!
I put mine on a blog - wasn't sure if they'd approve it here, but it's worth a shot!
