    Hey Nop's, that shouldn't be up to you to find someone to cover for you. That should be the Sup's responsiblity. Not your problem.

    Pro,
    Love the idea of having a one day system. Seems like a better bet, I know after traveling 3 hours one way for an on call every night for a week, falling asleep at the wheel was almost guaranteed. There is also the accountability of attempting to do your work and forgetting steps.

    I like this, makes sense once you figure it out.

    I am on call every Wednesday, and 1-2 weekends every month. Weekend being Fri, Sat, and Sun. If you're a nice guy about accepting on call shifts you get screwed...

    We have 12 locators on my team. We do a weekly and daily rotation. 10 of us including me do the daily until we get our 7 days in, and then the 2 remaining locators do the weekly rotation. So I get 9 days off between the duty during the daily rotation and 14 or more days off when the weekly guys are on. Been doing this for about 9 months or so. I really like it now, but it took me alot of adjusting after doing the weekly for 14 yrs.
