OO/LO vs. Company Driver

I thought I was going to go the owner operator / own authority from the beginning, I figured I would be company just long enough to save up. After speaking with dealers and other owner operators it seems you need around 60k - 30k to get started. Most lenders want a huge down payment for a first time buyer. You could buy used but your going to end up throwing away money in repairs at least with a new truck you can get an extended warranty and then trade off the truck at 400k miles. But after seeing the amount truckers pay in taxes after expenses the pay didn’t really surpass a company driver by much. I’m currently a OTR reefer driver for swift. With 8 months experience I get bonuses and accessorial pay. My average take home is about 900$ Iv had several 1000$ take home paychecks. If the weather is causing a mandated shut down I get paid while down. Dispatch doesn’t harass me and I don’t fight for home time I stay home just as long as I would if I was an O/O . I’m 24 and I’ll probably remain a company driver

Getting in the groove

I’m new with just a few months experience. I’ll come home after 5-6 week tours hauling reefer running recaps. When I get home I just feel exhausted and towards the end of a tour. Do you get used to this as time goes by or do you still get tired?
