430 am I'm on the road to one of my spots. I'm expecting it to be slow but I also expecting to catch a big ride this early in the morning. There I am waiting and waiting and waiting watching these other drivers burnin fuel trying to catch a ping. It's now 540 and still nothing. I take a look at the partner app to see where my opponents are and notice 1) a couple @@@@s are parked one block from my location 2) there is a large area of uncovered territory. It's as if no one is looking at positions of other drivers or they think piling on top of each other is good. Anyways I head off to the new spot (2 miles away)... when I get there it's surging good 4.2, this is the spot I can feel it! I know it's going to happen. So much so I don't even turn off the truck........... about 3 mins in BOOM, FISH ON!!!!!!!! It's a 7 min drive according to Google but I can make it 5. I take a look at the rider info and notice its a 5.0 surge, my eyes light up I start thinking is it the one am I going to LAX on a 5.0 or is it just to the next city... oh well even at a 5.0 it makes this trip a great payout. I'm almost half way there.... and then it happens... I get that notice. That dreadful cancel notification and I pull over to the side of the road as if I just dropped the winning touchdown pass for the superbowl.... the surge begins to fall like a tree in the woods. Before you know it the map turns orange, yellow and then ping.... I officially lost the big one.

Hope you enjoyed. UBER ON

Still chasing the surges? Looks like the FISHERMAN took the bait instead of the FISH!

I feel you and it's the hope for the big one that keeps a lot of people driving. Good story and may you get a 3X surge ride to San Diego!
