    Just curious, what is everyones average daily mileage route? I seem to log the 30's most days, some upper 20's, sometimes 40/50 miles.

    Mine is around mid 30's a day - about $15/17 gas for the truck with price around here.

    I haven't kept track of my routes, but when I go to school, it's 34 miles 1 way, so 68 miles round trip, in my truck, thats about 12-15 dollars a day, 2 times a week, and when theirs snow and I need the 4wd, that brings the cost up.

    The way I look at it is, I spend money to get an education so I can make more money.

    wow, 100 miles, thats got to be a long day for you, yeah I'm going to school for business management. I'm going to a community college to get it, so it will be an associates degree, but any degree is better then none.
