    If you can manage to sleep in a truck that bobbing up and down from uneven roads. Also if you could sleep while trusting someone else's driving. I did teaming as a trainee with Werner. I could not wait to be done with it. Being away from home, sleeping in a moving truck.... ECT ECT. I much prefer my day cab.

    Everyone has their own thing. Some people would get caught in a day cab, others wouldn't get caught in a sleeper.... Ok I have driven a sleep locally but haven't slept in a truck since I went local.

    I was just in Wyoming. Went on vacation and it was magnificent! I’d always wanted to see old faithful and I did ! Along with all the beautiful sights in Yellowstone. The Teton mountains are simply amazing. Went to Jenny Lake in Grand Teton National Park and it was like something out of a dream. Here’s a pic of the Tetons I snapped while hiking in the National Park, but pics don’t do it justice.

    And here’s old faithful.

    i think my best week was when i only grossed $1647. But it wasn't about the money, it was about the experience----the excitement and fun;

    Starting off in London Ontario, first stop in Casper Wy, another stop in Gillette, Wy. Not wanting to go back down I-25, i went thru Bighorn National Park on rt. 16, 20, 26 etc. don't remember the rest but making it to I-80 then making it to Salt Lake for the end of the pay week.

    Mind you, i had likely never been in these states before much less passing thru a national park and taking "back roads."

    FUN. :)
