Beats a motel.
Free hookups too. [emoticon]
I just park next to the other driver's house where he added a 50 amp plug.

I carried the mail for several years and I cover for the other two drivers when they take time off.

I also drive during December to help with the additional Christmas mail.

Its the longest route both miles and stops. 540 miles every night with a total of 27 stops.

Due to the miles and number of stops its too hard for the company to find a temp driver every once in a while so I fill in for them.

Now that's a rural route with a lot of miles.
Is that a residential route ?

I pick up the mail from 10 rural post offices and a couple of other stops and take it to a distribution center.

I have about an hour and a half break before loading the next days mail and dropping it off at the post offices.

Its a 14 hr shift and I get paid for 12.5 hrs.

I leave the first post office at 3 in the afternoon and get back about 5 AM the next morning.
