    Good evening,
    I've searched thru these threads to find anything on Bay & Bay out of MN and I've come up empty every time. So, with that being said, I will be the Guinea Pig. At one point, I had 2 trucks pulling dry vans around and I was dispatching both trucks. After some time, I ended up getting rid of both trucks and closed everything down. I gave up the owner op life style and went to running a heavy wrecker & did some oversize loads with a RGN. The road has been calling my name, so lets give this another shot. I'm not looking to get rich or to expand. I just want 1 truck and that's it. This will serve as a log of my journey thru the ups and downs. My goal is to post weekly, My first post on this will be Saturday as I should be running my first load for Bay and Bay. As y'all ask questions, ill try to answer them to the best of my ability.
    *I obviously got myself into some pretty cold weather, -19 currently. Its a cold one.*

    How does one go from owning two trucks previously to now getting mixed up in the lease purchase game? Rather backwards isnt it?

    Yep, let me help you. Lets start this bashing off the right way. I'm not sitting here saying im going to be different, blah blah blah. The odds are always stacked against the driver.

    Yeah, I know guys - but I'd rather see the honest progression unfold.

    It's all good information.
