    My husband is a truck driver and we live in an oil boom area.  We would like to get our own semi truck and get out there to make the kind of money we`re seeing other people make. We both have plenty of experience, but can`t get off the ground because of financing.

    We have contacted financial institutes from the internet who have put us in contact with other financers.  I have also called a lot of the truck lots to see if they have financing available, but we have had a bankruptcy in our past so credit is an issue.  One of them has a truck for us, but it`s not complete with everything we need and we have to pick it up in Minnesota.  We are in Wyoming and would have to miss too much work to go there and the cost of diesel would be a lot to get it back.  We`re working now mostly with repos because they`re easier to get into, but no luck so far. We just want to make a better life for ourselves and we`re very responsible people that have had some uncontrollable things happen in the past and are trying to fix them.
