    First I will introduce myself, my names Justin and I'm 30 years old. I am a Air Force Veteran and I have been trucking for 5 months now. I am a smoker but I am trying to quit. Everyone says I should have been a comedian. I work at Danny Herman and I love it here. We run vans only. I'm making about $60k a year but my parents work here too and team drivers make $85k each. I will let you pick what shift you want to work, I have worked both and I don't mind either. As a solo driver I run coast to coast average 1900 miles an assignment and get between 2700 to 3700 miles a week. No north west and no north east and they keep me moving. I'm in a 2017 kenworth t680 paccar, but ive noticed all the team drivers have 2018 and 2019 kenworths. I've got the latest rand mcnally gps and a mini fridge. Solo bonus is 12,000 miles to get $.06 for every mile driving and a safety bonus of $.02 for every mile driving on top of my $.37 a mile. I know that teams only have to get 17,000 miles a month which will be a peace of cake. I'm comfortable with staying out until we hit bonus and then heading home for 4-6 days. If you are interested please fill free to shoot me any questions that you have.

    I thought I wanted to do team, but I have so much junk in my truck there's barely room for me. When I switched out my stuff Friday the mechanic helping said you got a family that rides with you?

    No no family with me they are at home. I'm not sure what truck you are driving but my kenworth has a lot of room. I even have 4 weeks of cloths with me.

    I love KWs. I just carry a little of everything. I don't give truckstops one dime I don't have to. Complete tool bag, clothes for a week, cooler (No apu, no fridge) and lots of drinks and snacks. I am always out of time so never stop. I fake my 30 minute break at deliveries. I have a thread with my storage box and bedding.

    I always recap so I never run out of hours. I don't have any tools, Danny herman has plenty of terminals to get truck looked at if need be. I have apu, fridge, outlets, and a thermo king. Even a tv mount in truck but I don't really have use for a tv.

    I thought I wanted all that stuff, but I tell you, after 11 of driving in traffic all day when I hit a truck stop it's shower, eat and sleep. Get up and do paperwork. Time does go fast though.

    Paperwork? I just take pictures of bol and snap a picture and transflow it through my phone. I rarely get caught in traffic.

    We have to do tripsheets also along with transflo. One for each new load.
    Empty miles, loaded miles, fuel stops, drops, pickups, etc., etc.
