    For me, I charge by the mile. We have roads known as "Fire Roads". Typically about 12' wide. Packed dirt or gravel/dirt. But I also take into factors such as hills and steep curves. I usually figure one mile equal to one hour. That doesn't mean I drive one mile an hour, though. Usually, I'll make two and perhaps three round trips. Plus some areas require additional attention to keep the snow pushed back.
