Hello everyone, I'm getting back into trucking after a 10 year break. I got my experience OTR with Covenant Transport, made 48 states in a little over a year, then drove mostly local, some regional, for 7 more years. The reason for my 10 year break is my business, my driving record is clean and I have a good work history now. I'm basically starting over as a new driver since my experience is so long ago. I have my permit, and I'm signed up with a local trucking school to get my license back soon. I'm definitely leaning towards going back over the road to get some experience again, but it was the idea that some local jobs were available to rookies that got me excited about getting back into this mess. But the open road is calling me! I've been cooped up too long doing production work in a "Factory Downtown"! I loved/hated OTR, but I feel it's a good way to get back into things, maybe local again eventually. I joined the forum so I could ask some questions about trucking companies if I need to, and I'll try and post any questions in the right spot. My list is currently- Roehl, Danny Herman, or maybe Schneider. Dry Van, not really wanting to pull Reefers, but might.
