    The fantasy part was having the money to go in and buy the truck of your dreams you still have to get paid to ride around......unfortunately

    I'd still get my own authority because with a paid for truck carriers wouldn't accept me turning down their low paying loads . I know several O/O's without truck payments that will sit before accepting low rates . Why take a $.95 a mile load and miss out on a $2 a mile load while you're pulling it ?

    I get your point but let's just say you have to go to a company, now who? of course if you had the money to get a truck you'd have the money for athou. and etc. and would get higher paying loads, this is why it's fantasy, just wanted to stir up some discussion on who you'd put your truck on with

    Not much response here . I guess nobody wants to destroy their fantasy by having to sign on with any carriers . They don't want to degrade their fantasy truck with any of those names on the side .

    I walk in, use the restroom, walk right back out, and hop in my company truck.

    SURPRISE! A fundamentally sound post by you. I concur.These are the times that more O/O's need to outright decline the low paying loads as the rate will go up the longer that one load has to sit.I am going to thank you for this one.
    It qualifies as a fantasy trucking post in my book.
