Took a nice (and profitable) long ride to Olympia. Should I deadhead back to Seattle, or are we allowed to pick up in Thurston County?

If we are allowed, should I wait for a DF ride back north from Olympia? Or, should I deadhead to Tacoma and set a DF there?

How many ants are around you down there?

I had a pretty reasonable few hours after my morning run into Olympia when I made one a while back. Certainly less traffic than Seattle.

IIRC, Olympia pays Seattle rates. It's the zone between JBLM and Federal Way that can pull down your profits on the way back.

Sat for 3 hours in one place doing paperwork while renewing DF multiple times. Finally, I said "Screw this," and deadheaded back home. Took 1.17 hours and used up almost half a tank of gas for the round trip.

Yes.
Lyft also is in Olympia. Lyft began service there earlier this year.
At least you were able to pull out a laptop and do paperwork. I'd like the ability to work remotely in-car but haven't figured it all out yet. (The answer is probably to tether a tablet to internet?)

I.E.:

That DF killed you. I was doing one stacked ride right on top another for several hours in Olympia. Between Lyft and Uber, I stayed busy enough to the point that i started considering moving down there.
