I started rideshare last year, September 2018. This would be my first 4th of July with Uber/Lyft. Your feedbacks are greatly appreciated.

Happy 4th to all my fellow drivers.

I line my trunk of my car with plastic two layers thick. I go up to the boardwalk where the beaches pull up open it up and have nothing but ice cold Coke and water. I made a killing last year on it I don't think I drove but maybe 20 miles getting supplies. I had to refill three times.

Last 4th of July, I did Eats. It was busier than I thought. I made $140. Since we have Summerfest going on, I was going to work a few hours doing R/S.

Happy 4th to you also!
Thank you for sharing your experience and the image. I hope you break the record this year if you decide to drive :smiles:

NO, 2 years no Holidays. Holidays are for family.
I like that and I'm considering it as an option.

My ass will be comfortably seated on the grass watching fireworks.

Not worth it to me to deal with checkpoints, hammered pax, and the increased likelihood of being killed. :smiles:
Oh no....., don't want to get killed on the independence day :frown:

This will be my fourth July 4th coming up ..

I personally will drive during late morning mid day to get most people to their BBQs. Tips are always the best then. I stop at 3pm when all hell usually begins to break loose. Take my son to family’s and watch fireworks and eat leftovers.

I think first year I did it at night .. not worth it .. drunks asking you to stop every time they hear a boom and event traffic and as Ben M said checkpoints everywhere

Happy 4th bro

That's a good one, I like the timing as I'm a day driver anyway, thank you.

Oh, nell no!

Even if I wasn’t in the middle of a moving to our new house, I still wouldn’t drive. Nope. Even though driving minimum fare rides sounds pretty damn nice change after hauling stuff today. Still have two days to go...

Chilled bear? 🐻 Like the one I almost hit near the North Carolina border last week? 😂

Yeah man. Enjoy the 4th as a man, not as a driver. But don't get stupid drunk and "call an Uber" 😜

Food trucks, fireworks, and friends at my complex on the 4th. Looking for it. :smiles:
That's a man's plan, i like, I like :smiles:
