    First time I put my foot down on this matter. Ktown to Moreno Valley on a 1.7x boost. Yeah it would have been mad cheese but. That type of ride, man, I tell ya. Is one helluva drug.

    It was pretty easy too. Telling this spineless pax to order another Uber. Can't wait until we get that feature that confines us to areas we choose. I believe we will get that opportunity soon.

    At this time of night I would have cancelled too. That's a long way to be deadmiling back potentially sleep driving. Because u know NO ONE is headed back to LA area this time of night so the DF would be useless now

    Members of this forum have long earned cache by maintaining a I cancel every ride possible attitude. After all, my car my rules, independent contractor, I'm here to make money not do charity work, UberDown, TedgeyUp. If you look through this site and like sites the huge majority of expressed opinions is to say no way that's too far.

    At 1.7× boost that's about as easy money as you're going to get from Uber. Use you onion head onionheadonionhead .

    I would have done it at 1.7, especially if traffic is clear.

    You might be right. It's just a long ride to come back empty to stay awake. Unless ur drinking a really good coffee ☕️

    I agree, he should have taken it. It would have been a $80-$90 ride. Two hours. I would have done it.

    The only downside is its a dangerous freeway with all the drunks. I assume they were going to the west side of Moreno Valley but the east side is a dark desolate place

    That and the map can be a little confusing on Tanqueray and benzos. 215 to 10W , wait a minute is the 10W or 215N? Wtf, is that a cop? I hope so maybe he knows.

    Why would you cancel that at this time of night? You can get to SD in an hour and a half right now.

    Wtf, best thread ever on up?

    we are who we are. A different breed. Do what you need to do? Take the 1.7, fix your rig, take your bump, uber on. Not saying I do this stuff but, if it doesn't kill ya. Lol

    better than a base I had from lax to Ontario on rematch.

    By the way, you pig pen dwellers absolutely suck, jumping at 1.3 doesn't help anyone.

    If this doesn't make sense, it's because I hate you. ✌

    Awe man! That ride would have helped me out so bad. No traffic at night, just us and drunks out.

    East side of Moreno Valley until the 10/60 merge is a dark freeway w/few if any street lights, crazy drunken drivers and frequently fogs over.

    Sir, your solution is amateurish. Professionals don't run out of meth.

    I was going to say the same thing. My car seat is more comfortable than my bed, and the dog isn't there to wake me up.
