    IMO, it's reckless to lease a truck with so little experience. If you lease you are GUARANTEEING to pay the expenses for operating a large commercial vehicle while the company only SAYS they will give you enough miles to make money. Nothing in lease contracts requires the company to give you even 100 miles per week. It's high-stake poker.

    Doing very well at Marten.
    With the bonus programs available I'm averaging 65 cpm.
    $1100-$1150 guaranteed each week.
    No skin in the game.
