    This is purely hypothetical for the purposes of Uber, but I'd be curious to know how much money you would accept to do this. You are set to drive 2 hours and 20 minutes to your destination (150 miles) and then you have to wait three hours before you can leave to come back home. What's the minimum you would want to do this and/or what number would say is very reasonable to do this? Total time: 7 hours 4o minutes and 300 miles.

    Depends on many factors:

    Time of day/night
    Terrain( desert, mountain pass, cliffs, etc)
    Location (major city or remote location)
    Music selection (me or the pax)

    I would probably do it for free just for the adventure.

    Sure, make it a pool and I am set.
     
  14. Pick me up on the way to SF for an additional pickup fee.

    The 3 of us can go get a great lunch with all the money saved on that ride.

    See my post above.

    It's done!

    If you swing over 2500 miles this way, I insist that you take the 4.10 minimum.

    Here's how I would book this for my suburban.

    Hourly As Directed 7.67 hrs X $75/hr = $575.25
    Fuel Charge (Any Trip over 50 miles should include this) +15% = $86.29
    Driver Gratuity (Calculated before fuel charge) +20% = $115.05
    Total Fare = $776.59

    It's been awhile since I've gotten one of these but I use to run people from Houston to Lake Charles casinos quit a bit.

    In the spirit of saving, I hear McD's has some decent sandwiches for $1 each. Make it the McD's Pool Express (tip is included!).

    Lol these numbers remind me of when you'd ask a straight guy how much money it would take to blow a guy and they blurt out "$10 million!!!!" Just to assure everyone how masculine they are.

    You want 6-700 dollars for an 8 hour work day? Are you a surgeon now?
