flatbed trailer loaded with railroad partsflatbed trailer loaded with structural steel parts

First load was railroad parts going from Chicago to Springfield. This current load is a mess of structural steel that I picked up in Ottawa Kansas that's headed to the GM plant in Flint Michigan.

Good to hear it Pat.

Care to go into details? I don't know the first thing about how to become an owner operator. And while I really have no ambitions of doing so it sounds as if there is more to it than go buy a truck and plate it then insurance and just go pull loads.

Owner Operator:

An owner-operator is a driver who either owns or leases the truck they are driving. A self-employed driver.

There is a lot more to it, but this site is not about that so I will refrain. I will say that I lucked into a gig that will go on for another 10 months and will have the truck paying itself back easily in that time. And have some extra to keep going.
