First Truck, It Has Bed Bugs

Sorry to hear you went through that. It sounds like you still have a great attitude compared to what many would probably have.

There are lots of really dirty people out here and I have yet to figure out why. I keep my truck really clean inside and out and organized and I feel it not only improves my morale but also my efficiency as I'm organized

Made it to 1 year: 130,000 safe miles

CRST, then I went to Knight to avoid driving team during winter took a little time off then went back to crst as a trainer to finish contract. Have less then 30 days to finish this contract.

Hey Mikey, I am just curious, who did you start your trucking career with?

Does anyone know anything about knight transportation

62mph truck DM that know your name Good money Smaller auto volvos typically some freight liners and some internationals Elite pass Free laundry at terminals Direct deposit EFS Zonar driver tech

Great company probably the best starter company which can take you to a few years experience or potentially even a whole career.

Condo vs lightweight prime

Think of it in this perspective: A: do you want to make about an extra $120.00 per every 3k miles after taxes but seriously compromise your comfort and space. Or B: Do you want to be comfortable and not cramped and enjoy your life a little more.

Made it to 1 year: 130,000 safe miles

So I wanted to check in here I regularly used this site as a base of research when I was researching trucking.

I have completed one year so far about 130,000 safe miles no tickets, CSA points , or preventables. The doors are pretty much wide open now and I'm looking to make a move next month to an outfit I should bring home about 1200-1400 a week take home.

Good luck to you all and just remember GOAL and pay attention:)
