I met a Married Couple in 2017 at a repetitive Deliver and Load location in Coppell, Texas, called MACH 1.
They were driving for Covenant and are still there.
They live in southeastern PA.
They've had a couple Truck Upgrades so no more Shifting, just all the annoying Bells and Alerts/Alarms.
They're an elder couple in their 60's and are to drive until they can not drive, so I've figured until somewhere in their 70's.
I taught my wife to drive a 4 speed stick shift car, then a 6 speed 24' Straight Truck, then a 10, super 10 and 13 speed Road Truck.
We're still together but not driving Road Trucks.
I'm only here at TTR because it's the BIGGEST and BEST Trucking/Transportation Information Site on the Weird World Web.
Got off the Long Roads early 2018. Tried a couple Driver Employment Services in '18, '19, '20. Swapped CDL-A for a Class C in '21.
