    Hello to everybody!

    A friend of mine gave me this site and I love it! I am wanting to get into trucking OTR and I am using this wonderful site to get information. I plan on starting the process of getting my CDL at the end of September or early October.

    Then the training and hopefully solo after that. I have a brother-in-law who has been in the trucking industry for a long time but it was my friend who has talked me into it. I have always thought about driving OTR and I have a perfect driving record, don't do drugs and try to take care of my health so hopefully I will be able to start next month.

    Hope to talk with you all soon!!

    Welcome to the forum 18-wheeler...

    Lots of great info here and some pretty respectable drivers to answer questions you might have. Kick your shoes off and put your feet up, there's plenty to see here.

    I don't know enough about either to throw any advice. I have heard more good than bad regarding both.
