I'm thinking of picking up a morning route this summer. It's in my neighborhood. Not sure how many customers, but the neighborhood is laid out in a grid. The route is 8 long for each of the 5 streets. So, about 4 miles total with houses on both sides of the street. I'll be doing the route with my car. I'll probably use it to load the papers in the trunk, then run a block one side, drop off the papers, run back the other side, then drive to the other end of the street and repeat.
Anyone done a route in the morning? Anything I need to be aware of? I don't do the billing and the newspaper sends me a check the first of every month. I'm guessing the route will take about 2 hours including folding papers if I need to, etc.
