    I started with a 5k truck, 5k for expenses and was rolling. I saved that and paid off everything by living in a RV and not going "home" every 2 months. I moved here, I think that made a huge difference, we (my wonderful, understanding, gypsy, retired military wife) rented the house out, downsized and moved. It was TOUGH. We used to live within hours of 3 of the 5 kids and 4 of our grandkids. It takes sacrifice.
    To ones that do and are willing, it pays off in spades. I am building a larger company and hope to hire my grandkids in 10 years to start out driving cabovers, then run it. We now go on vacations to see family. Dont give up! Buckle down and save, save, save. Start with water, start with crude. Make a plan, modify it as necessary. And run with the crowd that works and doesnt B.S. and ##### all day. Find your niche and you'll be fine.

    Godwink is down the food chain. Up here they haul for a company that hauls for a company. More money usually if you stay with the first line. The people who contract with the oil companies is where ya wanna be. The Plains, The Pacers, High Sierra, Rose Rock Midstream and Oilfield services. The farther down the food chain you end up with a % out of a % out of a %...........
