thinking about going back into longhaul trucking!
« on: October 28, 2018, 10:29:29 PM »
it just dawn on me today.....mayb e the problem with me is, I step out of my comfort zone,because others said it's a good thing to do so....i forget, you can't always take people's advice...what works for them may not work for you...hahah

always been a lay low, low key type of person...but that's hard to do when you're the most good looking man ever to step on earth...and a humor that can make just about anyone laugh..hahaha I love people, but I'm just not a people's person..haha

i exhausted all my options...goin g back to school, couldn't hack it...working normal jobs...just feel embarassing now...yeah, it's only good to step out of your comfort zone and experiment...b ut if you know your game, stick to what works for you... 8)

Trucking is in high demand right now so you can probably negotiate for a nice salary too. I say, if you're single, no dependents, it should be a nice gig...

I know a couple of Hmong drivers, one does long haul and the other only does California and they've been at it for over a decade now and still seem to enjoy it. They enjoy "getting paid to travel and see other areas of America"....

man, if I was single and don't get tire easily, I would definitely consider driving trucks for a living.

I use to get tire driving long distance too...lols...d epending on how my body feels, I can probably go 10 hours straight...but I'm the type that stops every few hours..so nobody wants to partner up with me...but most truckers prefer solo anyway..haha

If you get tire easily, get a partner like this Hmong couple and switch off when needed.. ;D O0:

man, even I get tire driving to work.  and that's only a 30 minute ride, one way.  unless, I go somewhere where it's interesting, haven't been before, or traveling with the old lady.
