    Ok here we go. 2nd week with this new truck after the whole craziness with last truck.
    Ran 1997 loaded and empty. Total gross to the truch with a day of layover pay is $4505.40. Will try to update when I find out how much take home is thursday.
    First week wasnt bad after being in the hole $700 was able to put $850 in the bank.
    Only putting this out there for all those that say you cant make money doing lease. Is this for everyone? No. Will I always have great weeks? No. This is trucking. Sometimes I think you have a better time playing the stock market but this is the profession I chose. Love my choise even though it drives me crazy at times.
    Ive said it to a few here and ill say it again cause this goes for noobs and old timers alike. Pay attention learn everything you can and above all have fun. We are only here for a little while.

    After finding out there was a mess up on my pay for 2 weeks that I didnt know about. This week after everything trk payment tolls fuel etc. Put in the bank $1879.64.
    Now on to the other I get a $1034.32 dollar bonus cause they over charged me on truck payments last week for a truck I turned in.
    For the neigh sayers. I just have to say "bite me" . Im living my dream and making money. Yes it could probably be more elsewhere but I like PRIME a lot.
    If a guy like me that takes a while to figure things out can make money here anyone can. But you just have to have a little trust in some people you barely know.
    Prime has proven to me they are honest and abmit thier mistake and make it right. Y'all can say what you want but im now Prime through and throuh.

    Good, my wife used to call them weekly and go over my settlements with accounting/payrole and there really never was a problem. She got to know the Payrole gal really well and they would just chat away LOL. She would every now and then catch something that they did not take out of my check, instead of the other way around , and tell them to take it out next settlement. LOL Sometimes I hate having an accountant for a wife !!!, but I never end up paying taxes either

    Well now profits have been ok lately. A few missteps on my part but expensive stuff is paid for. Profits this week will not be great this week cause of holiday and home time but I anticipated it.
    Things going great got my wife and one of my granddaughters with me for a couple weeks.
    Love this gig. What other csreer can you do what you love to do have family with you see the country and get paid for it. Not to many.

    I will enjoy it a lot more when I get my own truck. I'm not to fond of working on someone else's schedule.

    Great news and good to here. I will be starting mine soon. They put me in the Overnight Class, so I'm not going out for PSD. I should be starting that 30k mile (+ tanker miles) journey after the 23rd.

    Well revenue is up and down. But its my fault still learning the hole home time and still have money deal. Thsts why they say educations are expensive cause they cost a lot. Still loving this place though.
    For those reading this Prime helps to the point that they can. All you have to do is ask and if one doesnt know they can get you to someone that does. Or at least that has been my experience here.

    Y'all keep having fun and in the words of the Duck
