Lapping the Beltway no. Going long way around it all the time. Sleeping international passengers are money.I think that you could longhaul a tourist completely around the beltway if they're asleep and they'll be none the wiser. Anyone ever driven a full loop around the beltway with a passenger?
Not without triggering a recalculation of the fare. My goal is to extract every possible penny from Uber/Lyft's cut. This was from that trip:You could have done better. Could have done a complete loop on the beltway
No, you will trigger the recalculation algorithm by time and distance as @New2This said.I think that you could longhaul a tourist completely around the beltway if they're asleep and they'll be none the wiser. Anyone ever driven a full loop around the beltway with a passenger?
Well said. Bonus points for the use of the N2TMH. I have done that exact route from BWI before but was shitting bricks the entire trip over whether it would trigger a recalculation.No, you will trigger the recalculation algorithm by time and distance as @New2This said.
If passhole complains, you will get a nastygram from lyft

So you have to know the limit, and not to exceed it too much as I did when I received that email.

The goal is to make your cut 100% and lyft's 0%. [email protected]&k the pink tutu!
2 years ago when I started hanging out from time to time at the BWI lot so many people took 97/50 to DC we'd joke and call it a "Code 9750 infraction". LOL. It was popular.DC <-> BWI I have used I-97 and US-50 instead of BW Parkway or I-95.
"Have you ever checked out Annapolis?"
That counts. I can say from conversations with other drivers that 3/4 laps in Bawmer going the long way to get to, say, Pikesville or Towson, or White Marsh is not uncommon. Hell I've done 3/4 laps from BWI to Towson and further West via the Eastern PG side myself. And the pax have been wide awake. It's amazing how many deer run up Rock Creek Park and recklessly run across the freeway near silver spring and Bethesda....or so I've heard. I don't long haul much been when I do I make it some biblical shit.I've done a lap around the Baltimore Beltway with a sleepy passenger before
Second try. Drove little faster since BW potholeway is somewhat fixed.Well said. Bonus points for the use of the N2TMH. I have done that exact route from BWI before but was shitting bricks the entire trip over whether it would trigger a recalculation.
The safest profitable BWI to DC route is 195/95/495 S/295 S (bear left at the 50 split)/695/12th Street. I avoid B.W. Parkway between BWI and 495. Shooting over to 95 does 2 things:
1. Saves wear and tear on your car.
2. Lets you cover more miles at a higher speed. 295 is so beat up people in Afghanistan laugh at the condition of it. You can't do decent speed. 95 is 65 speed limit.

I like it. Done it many times and is a common tactic from BWI. There are so many ways to longhaul from BWI. Nicely done. Keep posting I really enjoy these obscene, nearly pornographic long routes.
