    Some guy posted on here a couple years ago; 19 yrs. old and doing non-cdl hotshot.
    Has a pickup truck and bought a used horse trailer and hauling freight "under the radar."
    I believe that's much more common that we realize.

    Another guy doing the same hauling bicycles all over the nation for bicycle racing teams.

    Why don't you get your CDL and drive a big truck.

    That is no different than doing mobile marketing tours, race cars, etc. If you are not hauling commerce it's a different deal, but if the truck is over 26k you still have to have a CDL.

    Doom and Gloom. Can’t never did anything. I just try to be positive about everything I do. I guess I am old school. I see 20 year old KIDS holding a sign. This guy appears to have a idea he wants to try. The Journey is the education. Maybe he could hold a sign that says I need money to start a business. No if you want something money will NEVER hold you back if you want it bad enough. Being 66 my advice must be to old to be effective in the year 2020. Then again I enjoy what I do and never have to work. I hope this guy is successful at whatever he chooses. I hope he never has to work.

    Jeff Bezos , I think I will start a company. This company will become known worldwide. I think I will start it out of my garage. What kind of lunatic idea is this?
