    The Monday load went smooth as silk. Picking up my 2nd load this morning headed to Tejas

    Cant deliver till Friday, gonna relax and roll down nice and easy. Should net around 4K for these 2 loads. Very good week.

    In my service window alreadyo_O 15k for isx engines in contract. I need to chill on the miles for sure. They cover it though. Was trying to stretch it to June 5th lol.

    Think I have a few doctors appts that week:D

    1 month.
    First settlement was 0 because orientation was prior week. So 3 settlements in first month.

    Gross- $15,235.73
    Net- $7,029.05
    Miles- 8706
    Not great per mile so far, but I have 5k in savings. So I’m making something so far, just gotta be tight.
    Truck is doing great so far. Had to go to the Laredo yard for the first time. Decent yard

    Does your contract require you to use ATS for the servicing?

    I should mention that I only went home my first week. Been running for 3 weeks out. I’m taking my weekends and getting some long resets, but not at home. So there’s that.

    Could impact income some, depending on where you live. Me in central Florida makes it harder to get home and make money. I’m gonna take some time soon though, just banking some cheddar first.

    I’m working far less than I had and making more than twice what I was as a company driver(provided the truck stays in good shape)

    Putting in some miles, but labor wise..........chillin:cool:

    I opted to do my own tax accounting. Company was pimping the ATBS at 19.99/week
    Screw that. If I have to send them receipts and essentially tell them what to do, then what’s the point.

    So far it appears I owe around $750 for June 15th quarterly. I think I’m doing it right. Seems low though
     
    Paddlewagon Thanks this.

    You'll do fine at ATS....as long as you have no spouse or care about hometime...once you go home for anymore than 1 or 2 days...you're screwed

    Had a 3 stop load Monday. 2 stops in MS and last one in AR
    Got all 3 off Monday and had preplan for picking up a load near Little Rock this morning. Started heading that way this morning from West Memphis around 7. Guy said it would be near 10 before they would be ready(job site)
    So I’m chilling heading that way. 30 min into driving got a cal that load was cancelled because they wouldn’t be ready today. They took me off load and gave me a few preplans. Didn’t like any of them. Had a feeling dude was gonna be ready late today or morning, so I held out.

    Just got the call. Back on. They will be ready about 1300. Gotta be patient sometimes. Wanted this load

    Getting service today. Sitting on about $1600 to me for the week. I’ll get a shorty tomorrow I reckon.

    Their service policy sucks for Cummings engines. Every 15k. 30k for the others. Hopefully there are no issues and it will be a good one. Ran the crap out of it for 30 days, it likes it or it don’t :biggrin_25523:

    No active regens :biggrin_255:

    Added 1 gallon of oil so far. Preplan just came in okc to Omaha. I can swing it
