congrats, i remember when i got my first year in.I felt like I really did some thing
Heyyyyy...you have the same anniversary date as me!!! And my "celebration" included none of what you had.
I was awarded a jacket with my name and 1 year safe driving! Having E-logs I don't have any "problems" and they aren't about sabotaging careers. Too many waiting in line to sign up for that to be an issue.
Dec. 6 is my ONE YEAR SOLO (well, out of training) and I should have just about 100,000 safe miles under my belt then.
Good luck and keep safe!

its been a while, buty I seem to remeber over by the airport headed toward Olive branch from W.M there was a drop yard or something that had like 8 or 10 trailers of ours tucked together in the back corner.
Thanks for yalls feedback.
Truckin4Fun: Let me know if you discover that you are obligated to keep your truck working for Schneider until the lease is paid off.
I read about one guy who had hell getting his title from whatever company he had lease/purchased from. That may have been a fluke and I don't know the outcome. It was suspected that he would not complete the lease to the company took out a loan against his truck. When he went to his OC to get some answers they refused to let him leave the property in his truck.
But, as I said, surly that's a rare occurrence. But that's one reason I fancy the idea of not going through the company.
One guy I orientated with came from C. R. England, he said they kept him rolling almost barely enough to make his truck payment.
What I'm most curious about, if I go thru Schneider to get a truck, what are the hidden costs and obligations? Am I free to outfit the truck however I want (power inverter, gadgets or whatever) and am I obligated to install all of Schneider's crap like ambient sensors and OnGuard systems, speed governors or whatever else Schneider decides to add to the fleet.
i think you can take your truck if it dont work out with schneider i would have to read my lease but i do ok with them i pick my own loads i wont lie im getting rich but i pay my bills and still able to live by that i can still do things that i like
I can't say much on the trucking side since I'm just a " maybe wannabe" But on the Dave Ramsey side I am well versed. So I would go back to the basics and become personal debt free before considering any type of O/O. And then if you still want to be sort of self employed I would apply his plan for that as well.
I can say for myself that Dave's plan will work but It's not always fun or easy but not having any stinking payments sure feels good! Good luck with your choices!
Thanks Windsmith. Yeah, my understanding is if you lease from your company you can't take your truck anywhere else until it's paid off. Still a slave to the company.
Worth it, as long as it's a percentage based rather than mileage based, IMO. But you already know all the pitfalls and drawbacks of leasing from the same company that controls your freight. Since you've recently passed that 1 year mark, perhaps you should make your way up to Chattanooga and talk to BigBadBill.
Interesting! Well I'm glad you made it that first year and I must say that after a few of your earlier blog posts I wasn't sure you would. So anyhow congrats and keep them stories coming.
Sounds like a good pay rate! Glad things are going well

Thank you, Newbie.
Sorry to hear about your grandfather.
I spend too much time with Facebook. Here I'm trying to "like" your comments.
