    Congrats! Did you buy your own trailer? Did farm 2fleet buy it and lease it to you?
    It is great to keep your own trailer but no more drop and hook...
    good luck to you both!

    F2F bought it and we are leasing from them. It is used but way nicer than anything USX owns. I am ok with the live loads as we will be running mostly expedited. They get the loads on and off pretty quickly
     
    SheepDog and Wedge Thank this.

    Gotta say, after a few weeks we are pretty darn happy. Learning the load boards has kinda been fun and I am finally using my sales skills in my new career. Anne was not comfortable about the boards but she booked our last two loads and enjoyed it. Got home last weekend to watch my sons spring football game at Colorado State University. Heading to Puyallup Washington right now with an extra day in the schedule. We are stopping in Yakima to watch my nephew play in a baseball tournament. How cool is that.

    Well, we just bought our own truck (if the mechanic clears it today) A 2009 Volvo 780. It is red and we really have had enough of red trucks but still pretty.
