    Good job! The more experience you get driving in the white stuff the more confident you will become.

    And remember you're always the captain of your own ship... Only you can make the decision whether you believe the roads are good enough you to drive on safely... No load is worth ever wrecking a truck and trailer and injuring or killing yourself or anyone else.

    Unfortunately I am going to be sidelined for at the very least the next week. I have some health concerns that could effect me safely operating my vehicle. I won't get into all of that here. Just wanted to drop and update so you guys know what is going on.
     
    Oldironfan, Vic Firth and Lonesome Thank this.

    I was called by recruiter at Schugal was told $15000 sign on. I asked paid how. He said over 3 years. I said I'd think about it. How many drivers stay here for 3 years? Not many I bet. Also I do not need elog so I never called back.

    Unfortunately yes I did.

    There are a few reasons why.

    1. My father-in-law fractured his hip and I was needed at home for an extended period of time while he recovered. My wife could not handle taking care of him and our daughter while working full time.

    2. I could not get my depression and bi-polar under control while on the road alone. They refused to allow me to move into another truck to allow me to take a dog or a passenger with me. If I had someone or a dog with me in the truck I would have been OK.

    I enjoyed my time on the road but my mental health and physical health need some attention. I need to get myself healthy and maybe I will take a look at driving again but for now I am home.

    Are you back in the trucking game?. I know this post is more than a year and a half old. I followed your diary and appreciated being able to sort of ride along your time at Pinellas Technical. I live on the other side of the pond, North of Tampa.
