Around 1000 I am told to run over to the south side of Kansas City, Missouri and pick up a trailer then bring it to Lenexa, Kansas to pick up a load going to Columbus, Nebraska. The trailer itself is old and creaky, but the load is only about 11,000 pounds so it sufficed.
The whole trip is about 300 miles and I don't deliver until tomorrow so I was lazy and stopped at our HQ in Omaha. I've been out for the past four weeks and I'm going home this weekend so I don't feel like working that hard.
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.
