May was much better than April, in fact, we were able to turn a healthy profit. The freight market was better than April, but still unstable. It seems hit and miss.

December was a tough month. I had to do an engine rebuild, so I was out of commission and did not pick up my first load until the 17th. I ran until the 23rd and then was back at it on the 26th. I was hoping to take a little more time off around the holidays, but fate wanted me taking my time off earlier in the month.
