    The writing was on the wall for the past couple of years now. Ever since the pandemic ended the market was over saturated with trucks chasing after freight.

    And yet someone will still go out and spend/finance 50K to chase after $1.70 freight.

    It's frankly amazing the number of people who only find this site AFTER they've screwed themselves.

    I can only speak for myself . i've more or less made things go my way by working hard and being pennywise . I thought that would apply to trucking and probably would 15 - 20yrs ago . Now everything is on its head and far too many things out of my control , ie when is that 30k$ breakdown gonna happen ect ect ect .
