With the bid list going up in our center tomorrow I am trying to figure out which route to bid on. Since I am female and approaching 48 years old I have to put more thought in it than I used to. I have been a driver for 21 years so I have a couple of choices. So which is better on your joints and muscles? A mall route with 95 stops 25 miles and between 400 and 600 packages. With several heavy boxes to put on the docks of Lowes and Home Depot. You drive two different package cars. A rural route with between 110 to 125 stops 125 miles. The driver on it now runs over by almost 2 hours. A route that does a large trailer park and some business including Walmart and Home depot. 150 to 185 stops 100 miles. My manager said if my body was used to it age does not matter. I seem to think that your body gets worn out even if you do everything right. So looking forward to your thoughts on this.
