A regular season would be 60 days, +/- 10 days.
So really, the only reason y'all can run wide open, hell on wheels for days at a time, is because it's only for a short period of time. After the road shuts down you just sleep for a few days straight?
I would go bonkers having to do that if it was past two months.
