    This might have been covered in here before but I always find it interesting how diverse the routes can be. I have run some routes that were very rural taking an hour and a half to my first stop. Others have taken me less than 5 minutes.

    I am about 25 minutes from my first stop and usually average 140 to 150 miles a day. A light day would be 125 to 130 and I have gone up to 180 on a heavy day. Usually 100 or so stops unless they miss my stop count. Yesterday was 115 stops.

    If you feel like chiming in I would be interested in your replies.:thumbup1:

    My route runs between 55 to 65 kms daily depending on stop count and whether or not I have to pull stops from an area that's not mine. It takes me about ten minutes to get to my first stop which is the local hospital 99% of the time.

    Yesterday I had 99 stops. Today I had 71. Go figure.

    65-90 miles a day, around 65 high density commercial stops, and 25-40 mixed residential and 10-15 rural stops, where I pick up a lot of miles in the midday, also have 34 pickup stops (110 pieces total) that take about an hour. Should also note that I have beat this route for about -120-150 clicks. And that is taking a full half hour lunch and 2-10 min breaks. No need to rush this route when the first 80 stops fly off in about 2 and half hours.

    When I ran my regular in-town route, I would run about 45 miles and 170del and 35 pu...(avg 22 SPORH)
    When I ran(covered) a rural route I would run 250-300 miles and 90 stops...
    granted the route was supposed to only be 60-70stops.(avg 8 SPORH)

    40 give or take a few miles.
    The route is too close to the building (I get more "on area observations" than most guys.) On the bright side, I only have to fuel every three days.

    P1200 - Average del - 75 stops / 500 pieces - 34 pickups for another 500 pieces. Little or no resi
