    Hey gang,

    I'm a 27 year old guy in Southern Indiana looking to get into the business. I spent seven years active duty Air Force (AMMO) before finally trying to do this driving thing. I rode with my old man for thousands of miles when I was a kid and loved being out on the open road seeing different things. I've driven I-80 plenty of times to know it's a horribly boring route, but if I could get paid to do it, not quite as bad! Anyways, I enjoy driving and since I don't have the brains for anything else of substance, I'm hoping I can at least get a job driving for someone.

    I'm talking to Driver Solutions at the moment, and trying to get some info from Celadon's school (Quality Drivers?) also. I've talked to four or five places on top of other regular jobs to I can't even keep it all straight. Anyhow, I hope my (not perfect!) records don't keep me from pursuing a career in professional driving, and I will stick around here to learn all I can from everyone... I've been lurking for a couple days and WOW is all I can say!

    Take care,
    Will

    Morgan county, Paragon area. OK...South Central area. I'm new around here, moved back this way from Utah a couple months ago. Lived out there five years and NC for two before that. Grew up in North Central Indiana, Rochester area. You know how it goes, it's all corn fields!

    I'm not opposed to some good old fashioned work at all, had plenty of it in the desert. My possible issue is some things on my record and I don't have a CDL yet, thus why I am looking into schools to help me get my foot in the door.

    If you know a no bull (legal) shortcut a guy could take, I'd be all ears if you want to PM me.

    Well with out putting your business out there if its a felony it's probably not going to happen. If its less then just be honest about it IF It SHOWS up. DUI they don't like either oh and drug charges are a def no.
