    Meaning the area package car drivers cover where you're at. I was just thinking that it must suck being a TCD here. OKC metro is roughly 6000 sq. miles. I know my town pretty well, the main thoroughfares, but I am not looking forward to learning a new route all the time.

    6000 sq miles? Are you sure it's not closer to 600 sq miles?

    Google it. All the towns that go to secondary. Its pretty damn spread out.

    6000 sq miles would be nearly 80 miles wide and 80 miles long. I have driven through OKC and I know it's not that big.

    That's just Oklahoma City proper. Doesn't include all the suburbs. North to south it's 75 miles, east-west it's about 50

    Just worry about the little area (route) you are doing that day.
