    It has been months since I have been on here. Everything is going well. Love the Choice program! Life gets in the way sometimes and things like TTR get prioritized way down the list. I will try not to be as neglectful in the coming months. Soooooo sorrrrrryyyyy!!!!I have so much catching up to do on here it isn't even funny!

    I have been on the Choice program since Jan 3rd and have been doing fine. No real issues. I enjoy planning my own trips and taking the time off I want and need. No one to blame except myself if thing don't go right. The biggest lesson I have learned is to suck it up and take the cheap freight east out of Denver to the Midwest, then make the easy money running around there. I went west once because it paid better and that was a waste of time. I didn't lose money, but I certainly didn't make the nice big money I do in the midwest. Not as many options west to build a good trip out of. In the midwest and east, there is so much good freight, there is no excuse for not putting together a $3500+ revenue week every week.

    Has your truck been treating you good? Interested to know what your experience has been with the ISX compared to mine.

    Truck is still rolling along with no issues. The steering gear leaks a bit, but I slathered the area around the seal where it was leaking with JB Weld, and it's only a slow leak now when I crank the wheel really hard. Other than that, I just got the crankcase filter and water filter changed, who knows when those were last done. So far, so good.

    That's great. I almost went IC but left for a home daily off weekends job (occasional overnight run). Sometimes I get the itch to back over the road (started out as regional at SNI).
     
    skyviper73 Thanks this.
