    Shoot this,

    I would really appreciate any guidance brother. I have talked to several people, but they seem to be very fishy, and dishonest. I'm a military guy that likes to things straight forward, but I felt that some of this folks that I dealt with, seemed to try to take advantage of the new guy.

    And the way I see it, I have always been very fortunate and Blessed to have served this great Nation, that eventually I will find honest people to help me out.

    And one day I will do the same for others.

    First thing you need to consider is the tractors you will be running,lease roads and county roads will kill trucks very quickly.Maintenance can be very expensive.You may want to look into companies taking o/o to get some experience and make sure you want to deal with the hassles first.
