    Looking at May trucking..after running several months with May and staying out for 4 weeks at a time will they allow you to stay home for maybe a month straight once during the year? I guess you would lose your truck and have to start over when getting back. Would like to run hard most of the year but take an extended break once in a while.

    Doubt it...

    Especially with no tenure.

    You would certainly lose your assigned truck.
    smokey12 Thanks this.

    I have an answer to your question, I started with May in March of 2011 as a new driver, It was my first load and I was headed to PA. They had given me a printout of my load with p/u and delivery date and times. I was a little nervous about my first load and if I had enough time to pickup drive to PA and deliver in the time they gave me. After loading my truck with our belongings for the road, my wife and I walked over to the drivers lounge and standing out on the deck was trucker Steve (I recognized him from watching his videos) . I decided to walk up to Steve and introduce myself and ask him some advice about my load. He was happy to help, he reassured me I had plenty enough time if I go this many miles a day I could easily make it. His advice really took the pressure off.
    Then a little later he asked me and my wife to lunch with him and a friend, we accepted. What was unexpected after sitting down to order he offered to buy our lunch, he insisted. After lunch my impression of Trucker Steve was: He's a professional, he's generous and he is very knowledgeable.
    I worked for May through 2015 never saw Steve again, but if I ever see him again, lunch is on me.
