    Counting your trucks , trailers and equipment .How much money have you invested in your business?

    Do you insure total value or partial value ?

    Well, I ain't no accountant or anything like that but I make more in a year than my total outlay for everything, truck included. I said make, not profit.

    I don't know if that's good or bad or indifferent or if it even matters, all I know is the shick is still hard to pay for and maintain on top of feeding your family, dogs, cats and trying to keep up with sex!

    Please tell me the meaning of life!

    I am going to keep numbers out of this question in case my wife ever comes to the site. Every time I am talking about what I want to spend on equipment my wife says " I don't want to know" If I lay the grand total out there, I might give her a heart attack.
