My dad drove truck from the time he was 18 until the day he died, which was around 35yrs. His last 15, my mom drove with him and now at 40, I am driving. It is hard to believe, even now, that I am a truck driver. I swore I never would drive truck. My dad had many wives and I still have sisters and brothers I have never met. I have 5 kids of my own and now 3 grandkids. A friend of mine that used to work for the same corporate company I did started 2.5yrs ago and we have stayed in touch. I started thinking about driving because of him and now I am. I wished I would of started sooner but I will be driving for a while, the good Lord willing that is. I have been trying for a few months now to get my wife in the truck so we can be together and make double the money. Now that she is willing, the company I drive for has stopped hiring inexperienced drivers but yet they still are hiring experienced drivers. A little upset about that. I am looking forward to owning my own truck in the near future and have talked to a lot of O/O and IC's about it. Have gotten some great advice and am doing all I can to prepair myself for that day. Drive safe and keep the left door closed.
