Question for those that do lease purchase

I truly feel if anyone can do it it will be Mikey he is a driver 💯 he lives in his truck only take like 5 days a yr home time I think you got this bro

Hey Mikey, I think almost everybody thinks about it once or a hundred times. We all want to make more money at this, and it seems like a legitimate way to try and do just that. Remember that it often seems at first to really be working out well, but the reality usually doesn't kick in until you've put in the time to feel the weight of the mean averages that affect the trucking business overall.

You are in a unique situation to be a lease operator and nobody here is going to rain on your parade for trying to improve your income or your investment portfolio. The problem with the whole concept of leasing is that there just isn't that much extra money to go around in the trucking business. It is a business with average operating ratios in the 97% range. That just means after all the expenses are incurred, and you've had a few years experience put in as a lease operator, you might be able to improve your income by maybe 3 to 5%. Is it worth it? You will be able to tell us after a few years. What really gets me is when these guys who have done it for a few months start talking about how great it is. They have no way of even knowing yet.

Seriously, I wish you the best of luck with it. If anybody can pull it off, you are a great candidate for it.

Trainer kicked me off the truck tonight!

I agree 100 percent always pre trip your truck and always be looking at things when at shipper or receiver fueling can’t tell you how many times I found something wrong after my pre trip!

First, your trainer's pre-trip schedule: if he only PTI's on Sunday, he's wrong six days a week. Just like the HOS rules, the PTI is a requirement at least at the start of your shift.

Tires: if he couldn't believe it would hold air, why was he willing to trust that tire on the road?? If you're shingle load was heavy, call your on-road service before you head out. With light loads, I have driven a bit but still called in. In that case I'd plan where would be a good place for a 30 minute break then call the on-road people and tell them I'll stop there for the repair.

Finally....... I have solod out with MAY

Great job congratulations dancing-dog.gif good-luck.gif dancing-banana.gif

Its been a long road to get here, yall who know me know. Could have been shorter and not as painful had I listened more fully at times, but today I have passed all the requirements to solo out with MAY. I got to our Yolo, CA yard tommorrow to pick up my truck and bring a load back to our brooks oregon station.

My plan is to then take 3 days of solid home time with my family and to rest, wash clothes, restock and then head out to start running. I have alot of bills to catch up on, one thing at a time I am enjoying the victory today! Thank you to all who have followed, encouraged and rebuked me when needed.

I'm currently packing organizing as I ma moving out out of the truck I have slept in the last 4 nights and going to CA tommorrow. Thought I would put this on the general section. Havent hd a chance to keep up with my journal, mybad on that alot to do this last 2 weeks.

Thanks again yall, hopefully see some of yall out there, be safe drivers!

Hole in the wall food places

Texas roses over in Wilmer texas. truck parking great food and very nice people

I normally post in my solo diary but decided to start a new thread?

What are some of your favorite hole in the wall spots to take a 30 and grab something to eat? I get tired of truck stop food and cooking my own stuff.

Took some extra time out on my way to the DC and stopped at “kings wings” in Bessemer Al. Plenty of parking for a truck and the food is great.

I ate the cheese steak sammich before I took a picture 🤦🏻‍♂️

Got upgraded!

dancing.gif undefined dancing-dog.gif dancing-banana.gif

So, I finished up with my on-the-road trainer on Sunday. Got into a temporary truck on the yard and stayed in that while getting tested to go solo. Got MY truck on Tuesday, and officially soloed out yesterday. Got all of my stuff moved into my truck and am now waiting on a load to take home for a couple days of home time.

So, it's official...I've been upgraded to my own truck and am on my 90day starting probation.

Super excited!

Driving in windy conditions

I use an app called windy it works rather well

Yeah I use an app called myradar to check for storms and stuff. It has a feature to show winds, but it's difficult to use. And it doesn't show actual speeds or anything. I've been looking for an app that will show wind speeds and direction, but have been striking out so far.
