226 posts. Halfway there.
This is the 226th post on my Lease Purchase blog, which is the halfway mark to the 452 posts on my old OTRJournal blog. I've been here at Hill Bros for about eight months now and I was at CFI before for 16 months so the pace seems steady. Then again, I wasn't blogging for the first six months or so at CFI. Ah well.
I have now completed six full quarters of my lease-purchase. The most recent quarter's numbers are here. Previous quarter's can be reviewed with these links: (Year 2, 1st Quarter), Year 1: 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th. My first fiscal year-end review is here.
I have posted a spreadsheet with detailed information on every load I touched and every settlement I received over my first year. This post gives some useful background on how it is organized.
You might be interested in viewing my previous blog covering my 16 months at CFI, which is now Con-Way Truckload. I have some pictures and videos online you might find educational or entertaining.
Where did I start my driving career? At Crowder College in Neosho, Missouri. If you are in the process of beginning your career I would highly recommend contacting them.
