    I like her she is all Business with me straight to the point and were on our way but even with her I watch the board and picked most of my only loads I also have noticed on occasion there's a load on the board that I want that should have matched with me but did not so she never see it

    Well I think with me right now, since I'm very new over here, she hasn't gotten the hint yet, no matter how many times I've said it, I don't like to sit. If I'm going to be away from my kids and woman, I need to be earning. So there's been some downs, but I honestly think we are still learning each other's styles.

    I think you're going to have to put more than 5k down. If this is you're first truck purchase then more like 20% down.

    You're gonna sit at times.. It's not like sni was.. It's not a hurry and run operation like you're coming from... It's very laid back which is a good thing but with a weekly payment it can be frustrating

    Ya I understand the not liking to sit I was like that last year out the gate but after running the winter and freight being slow to pick up I have learn to have patience and it really payed off this week I grab a load out of the house last Thursday for 2.34 a mile to Jacksonville il while in route she calls me with a couple loads one to guymon ok for the life of me I don't know why I thought guymon was in southern ok and I could go back to the house well that was on me but two other guys were on the same run one Was on the board that dose all his own loads he had his next load planed chickasha to NC it was under 1.50 mile 270 DH pickup Tuesday the next guy uses his coordinator to pick almost all his loads but he checks the board on the weekend he's Cordinator called him with a load out of Chickasha as well to Alabama still under 1.50 mile Tuesday pick up I was last to unload empty at 12:00 headed to I-35 and keep working the board next morning load hits the board 40 miles from me 2.04 a mile to Davenport pickup Tuesday as soon as I commit I am accepted by all Rights somebody else should've been ahead of me but everybody was grabbing loads as fast as They could no matter what the pay to get out of Oklahoma

    The guy that bought my truck went thru his local credit union. They financed about 73% of the price. He was a first time owner operator. This was on a 2003 pete.
