just wanted to very quickly say hi to everyone. wanted to thank Brett and everyone else who helped me get through all of the anxieties of taking the driving test, which I passed. no better feeling than being able to hop in the cab and go....SOLO. much love and many thanks to all. will try a little harder to keep in touch

Great job Chris! Keep your head up and think every action through! Your first few months are very difficult. Congratz!

Also, its your current location that you put down on your profile.

Yes, Daniel, I know. just have to have a little mystery in my profile. good to hear from you. it's been a few months, but the time seems to fly by lately. any thoughts on the " lease purchase " plans that some trucking companies offer?

Absolutely not, especially as a rookie. There's just not enough worthwhile profit to be made and way too much risk associated with it. As a rookie, you need to learn how to do your job - not run a business. It'll be the worst mistake you've ever made.

Hey congrats on getting through it Chris! Onward and upward. Now you'll be running with the big dogs, eh?
