    Met a driver one time that had been living in his truck for 7 years. He rented a mail box at a RV campsite.

    We have some very unique drivers out here. I always think back to when I first started. I always say I should have lived in the truck the first few years. But, as it’s turned out, I’m good today.

    Do you think Wilson logistics would allow me to have my mail sent to them?

    Nope......use a family member or friend. You can sign up with USPS to receive an email pictures of your mail daily. Just the envelope, not the contents. That way you will know if it is important.

    I know a guy that lives in the truck full time. He seems to like it well enough but he's a single guy with no kids. He stays with relatives or friends periodically when he wants a break from the truck. He owns his equipment so there's no possibility of getting fired. He's very focused on building his retirement funds.

    Ask at orientation.
    If not, there's probably a UPS store in Missoula and you can get a mail box there. Use that as your mailing address.

    I use my sister's address in my home town as well. She just puts my mail in a box at her house. I pick it up while I'm in town. I do my banking, bill payments, etc. online. The only important things I am on the lookout for are IRS/tax documents, MVD, Medical/insurance stuff. She will open anything I need and send me pictures. Works out well for me.
