    i finished my disastrous run with 46% damage to the cargo and 24% damage to me. lost 4k on payment for the cargo damage and 11k cost to repair the truck. still came out of it 24k better off!

    i've just started a 1400 mile journey, i think its aberdeen to the south of france/north of italy....can't remember exactly where, i just saw it was 68k. thankfully part of it is a ferry journey, but depending on the roads i might be able to make it a one rest stop if i can blitz down the motorway.

    in the grand scheme at the moment, they're not that bad. the one i was on yesterday took about 400quid off me. once i finish paying off debts and actually want to earn, i'll no doubt change my tune.
    i was close to taking out another loan just to repair my cab last night, but thankfully i covered it, now i want to get my payments done, so i can start to roll about in the money!

    I think by the time you hit the big cash (£60k plus a job) the tolls change their prices. I have noticed on a heavy/oversized that are fragile/valuable the toll goes up exponentially.

    En-route from Birmingham to Cardiff to drop off Car Parts, a car overtakes me (two-way traffic road) but doesn't quite get the right judgement as he sees another lorry coming towards him. Before I have a chance to brake safely the car immediately cuts me off in front meaning I have to swerve onto the grass verge and into a ditch.

    This was then when I experienced probably the most hilarious moment ever in this game so far. My lorry was stuck, I couldn't move it. I decided on tactics and unhooked my trailer, and held down the throttle as I could see my truck slowly moving. Just as I was about to give up, my truck LAUNCHES forward and I even get a bit of air as it goes back out of the ditch, smashes through a sign and lands on the road. 2% damage, got my trailer back, was able to complete the job, walked away feeling boss time for some more jobs, I'm avoiding a loan for now as I want to earn the cash first. Buy myself a truck and get the garage sorted.

    How have you guys gone about starting up? Any tips? I'd obviously like to employ some people eventually..
