    I’ve got 4,380 +/-. Is it too early to start the countdown? ;)

    My retirement began 06/22/2011 and while I enjoy every moment especially while Rving with my wife in our 5th wheel and visiting our children. I would be lying if I said I didn't miss trucking. After 44 years and about 3 million miles it became routine with all the ups and downs but I still was glad that I had followed in my father's footsteps. I wouldn't want to be driving professionally today with all the pressure, electronic logs, hours of service and automatic transmissions. You always have memories and friendships to rember.
     
    dwells40, 48Packard, MACK E-6 and 3 others Thank this.

    I’ve been at it for 42 years and even with all of the automation I still love it. Work for a private fleet so don’t have to deal with headaches that others have on this thread and others working for a mega. Trucking has changed a lot over the years but so has everything else.

    I salute the ones who can make that happen, but I’m pretty sure it won’t be in the cards for me.
     
    dwells40, JohnBoy and Lonesome Thank this.
