We get paid by the mile. We are all independent contractors so we pay for everything. Bolt doesn't pay for anything.
We can ask for short distance loads only if we want to. That way if a driver wants to be home often he can. I've been away from home for a couple weeks at a time but that doesn't happen to often. Last June I was home 5 days out of the whole month if I remember right. That was a busy month but they are not all like that and I don't have to do them if I don't want to.
My van is burning the oil. Sending it out the tailpipe. lol. I started using the Lucas Oil treatment stuff and it seems to be slowing the burning. I may be a good spokesman for them soon if the stuff keeps working and slowing the oil burn.
