    You can thank YouTube truckers for a easy sale and high prices... People are selling off real estate and refinancing homes to go make that 11k - 40k net a week off a single dry van and load boards... Seen one guy claim 40k a week net off dry van....

    lol you'll see people at truck stops in a chromed out 389 who shut truck stops down while they try to back in a space... Because they got their authority in the month after they graduated driving school and paid cash at a dealership....

    Which funny enough...I'm right now enjoying pork chops with a great mango bbq sauce. And some funky pineapple rice stuff. Goes with the pork an sauce though, so no complaints.

    I wouldn't follow me for financial advice I either. One should only follow me for...the best tacos and food and stupid #### I say. :) Never for financial advice though.

    Sirscrapntruckalot - Buy high, sell low!
