Trucking Math

Two recent incidents come to mind.

While getting loaded, I mentioned to the guy, "They told me I'd be getting 45 thousand pounds, but it doesn't look like this is going to be that heavy."

He replied, "Well, they're about a thousand pounds a bunk, you'll be getting twenty bunks, so... we'll be pushing thirty."

Another time (earlier, actually) I was talking to a driver while tarping, who said it was about an hour and a half to the state line... he didn't know how many miles it was, but he knew he could go about a hundred miles in an hour, if he, you know, set the cruise at about 70, 75.
