I don't know if Im just being totally unlucky but all of my sessions this week but one has been really slow. Hope to get in thirty hours this weekend but if slow will be tough.

Forum is dead too, what is everyone doing, at the summer vacation houses having fun?

This week mornings seem crazy slow. Today especially, left Auburn at 415am and came DT. So far 5 trips totalling $22 in just over 3 hrs.

I worked 4 - 7 this morning at $55, yesterday 4 - 7 too at $38. For sure seems to be slow, salvaged today with 2 Cap Hill airport runs, but seems my normal fishing spots in North Seattle are pretty empty.
Same, 2 airport runs salvaged the morning. But still only bringing in about 1/2 to 2/3 normal. Been going home everyday this week around $75 a day. Looks like I will be driving this weekend.

That was my target to recently upping to $750. These mornings not helping :(.
You are right about that. Took today off to catch up on boat biz and house. We are not racing this year as we are moving and setting up a new shop. Next year will be out and with a vengence. I cant wait. This business has a way of consuming every bit of life. So soending this summer regrouping.

Is awesome you have future plans like that. This morning was a little better at $78 on four rides in 3.5 hours, 3 of them airport. The only thing is the dead head back is killing me and feel like Im putting on way more miles than I should be.
I love the airport funs and the way i see it, the dead miles back is mainly freeway speed so still easy on car. Ive been lucky once in awhile with long rides from north of airport back DT or bellevue.
I never seem to catch a ride from the airport area. Im like 7 for 7 of them being really short rides in that area so I just turn the app off.
I guess Im just lucky one time i got a request on Ambaum. I get there, its Milam recovery center. The girl was fairly young. She puts her black garbage bag into the backseat and hops in front. Swipe and its a ride to Everett!!! Since she kept nodding out it was a pretty easy fare. Except a few times woke up startled and half swinging....lol.
Got back from Chelan today. FYI-- You can log in @ Chelan and be the only driver @ the lake. Yes, I did try it. Lol.
Did you get any requests? Did you see the running of the Vintage Hydroplane BREATHLESS III? Followed by a chase boat 4 seater Unlimited type but with outboard motors.

Today was super busy after 1030a. Almost made up for the slow week. Hoping tomorrow and sunday ate equally fruitful.

Nice, I slacked off today, only did 2 hours in morning and took night off. Will try to get 25 hours in over the next two days, pray its not slow!
I slept in a little and finaly got DT around 6 or shortly after....AM hours. Had a fairly steady stream from the ferry terminal, altho the yellow prius are blocking on east side of AK Way today. Not big $ but steady. Had sat idle from 10 to 1130 but then it broke loose. Ride to airport, ride fm hotel near airport to Market....couple short rides on little surge and finished with phinney to airport ended at $175. Happy.
Ive had a $200 day today! Started around 9a. Gonna keep going a bit longer. Thanks for praying!!!

Ended up only going 4 more hours at 80 and crashed at midnight. Woke up at 330 this morning with the feeling it would be busy and got 2.5 hours in at 70 and decided time to call it quits and sleep and do nothing all day. Happy to salvage this past week at 7 bills as it was looking bleak. Hoping this week stays hot. My prayers worked and since Im a heathen I never pray, must be desperate!
I ended up breaking 300 for the day yesterday. Started heading home to Auburn around 830 so could get to sleep for early monday. Got a ping half mile from my house. Almost always nice and quick rides here but 5 or 7 bucks. Hit START and just about fell over...it said Lakebay. $55 and home at 1030. Once I got back towards Gig Harbor i turned the app back on and it was 2.8X all of Pierce except DT Tacoma. I turned my app on and off about 8 times. I already been out since 9a and was kinda tired but adrenaline was high. But left it off. Didnt even bother setting my alarm. I also cracked just barely over 700 for week. Im super happy with that.

The surge was mocking me this morning. When I was South it was North, than I was North and it was South. When I was in the eye of the surge it never pinged. Oh well got 6 hours in for 133, a very rare 100+ week day for me.
I also did good. 6 rides 3.5 hrs $122. Last ride ended at airport at 9a. Saw all the backups on routes back DT so quit while ahead and came home. got some house chores done. Now cracking the Cadadores and waiting for the Truck race. Tonight they run on the half mile dirt track.Very productive day all around.

I had a decent day considering i only put in 6 hours between noon and 6. Got a $33 ride right from my house in auburn that took me to puyallup and then tacoma. Accepted a ride from spanaway back to centurylink field. Tacoma rates are very low. Im not complaining very much as I did get a fare back into seattle....BUT....it was 55 miles and 64 minutes. I was quite shocked to see it was only $42. Okay, 42 an hour nothing to sneeze at. But compared to king county rates i was hoping for closer to 60. Peirce County is 1 per mile and 12 cents per minute. So after ubers 20% fee....looking at 80 cents per mile and 10 cents per minute.......not sure why tacoma is so low.
