Part two was diesel fleet vehicles.  It was a short one, so some of you may have missed it.  It was a few months before the snow plow story.

I'm looking into buying a deisel and doing some car hauling.  Where's a good place to pick up some work, or even ask questions about the industry?

Im not sure where yall live but i always make extra money haulin hay and cows for anyone i can, whenver im not haulin my own. Im not gettin rich but i usually dont go further than an hour or two from the house, so it evens out. It at least covers fuel and wear and tear and puts a little jingle in my pocket, every little bit helps, so if you live near any farms, see if they need anything hauled, some farmers dont have trucks or trailers big enough to pull heavy loads.

you guys need to do your research better, driver liscense classes are based on weight and combo weight like truck and trailer lenght has nothing to do with it. been in the hotshot field for 8 yrs now. Also noticed how you guy's left out about how much it takes to get started, start with about 2 grand and then go up from there
