    I’ve thought all day about your quote of how I purchased the wrong equipment and for the life of me I don’t understand that. Could you elaborate and what would you have recommended.
     
    D.Tibbitt and blairandgretchen Thank this.

    Yeah I believe it was just Texas and LA area. Once I got back into MS I was able to grab a load heading up to SC.

    I looked around the southeast area I run and there’s work there like it was before I went down.
     
    D.Tibbitt Thanks this.

    Maybe for the next couple years... to me it just seems they are trying to make back the money they lost during the pandemic and when oil went negative...

    I was comparing prices the other day.
    Fuel filters 2019-$17 2022-$40
    Batteries 2017-$57 2022-$110
    The only place that I receive a discount anymore is Fleet Pride.

    I don’t expect prices on anything to retreat to what they were.

    I'm surprised nobody said "supply and demand" and then told you that they want you to go out of business so there's less competition.
     
    Phoenix Heavy Haul Thanks this.

    I was wondering.......
    Have you ever booked a load, for say $5000, and then seen the same load posted for $4000 and the broker calls you later, (before pick up), and say, "sorry, bub. Shipper canceled the load."?
