Let's see. Starting in Kansas City (A), I was given a load down to Russellville, Arkansas (B), then the following day a load up to Omaha, Nebraska (C). The next morning I unloaded there then ran over to nearby Schuyler, Nebraska (D) to grab a load bound for Milwaukee, Wisconsin (E).
Makes me tired again just listing the trips!
After all of that I was directed about ten miles south of Milwaukee to Oak Creek, Wisconsin to grab a load of garlic bread (and other goodies) heading to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Only, our system had the load heading to Kansas City and I had to message in to confirm... turns out OKC is the winner this time.
Anyway, loaded this afternoon and since it is Friday I think I'll pass on the hell of the Chicago traffic. I have a 2300 Sunday appointment which I can make easily starting out tomorrow morning.
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.

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.
