    There’s plenty of ways to make really good money trucking. I’d say get some experience find the type of trucking that you like. And try to find the money in that field.

    A team driver would bring home more than me. But you can’t pay me enough to sleep in the back of a truck while someone else is driving. I also knew I wanted to yank tanks when I got in. I loved the road.. you’ll hear people say it gets in your blood and it’s the truth however. I hated being away from home more than a weeks time. When I was home it felt like I was only home getting ready to leave again. A buddy of mine enjoys being out weeks at a time. I say that to say find out what and how you’d want to do it then find a company that offers that or close too it. I may not make the most money in trucking but I have a pretty good gig that check all of my boxes

    As a Company Driver has to be UPS Parcel. Team drivers can make 190k a piece a year. Of course that’s working 6 days and being topped out in pay after 4 years.

    That's where I'm from; Robertson County though.
    What do you think about Bulkmatic that runs out of Hopkinsville? I think they do a lot of loads out of Nashville.

    I remember you. Drummer, right?
    Bulkmatic is a good outfit. Used to chat with their drivers in Kansas City at the Bisquick plant. I've hauled dry bulk tanker loads of flour to Bisquick. Driver I talked to were content there and making good paychecks.

    Yes sir, Drummer. I was looking at GP Transco and am all set on their end but haven't made the commitment yet. Then I saw that Bulkmatic ad.
