    Trucking bought my first place, but the cows and the rice and the almonds made it pay for itself.

    Yes, building a house right now. Worked like hell to get here and lived well below most peoples means for a long time but just have a goal and stick with it. I still wear some clothes I’ve had since I graduated high school and I just turned 36. LOL. Clearly I don't go shopping much. My current house? It’s paid for.

    Priorities my friend.

    Not really. Not trying to be insulting or anything but I am paying on a house, have bought and paid off 2 new vehicles (Ford Escape and F150) and bought a 5th wheel camper. The only thing outstanding is the mortgage on the house and that's mostly because I'm spending money on stuff like a new roof, new kitchen, remolding basement, etc.

    Oh, I've been a truck driver for only 8 years now....

    Good luck on a house in Utah. The prices have been pushed up to ridiculous by the people fleeing places like California, and other high cost areas. It is spread across the state as well.

    Also, have qualified for and purchased three homes while trucking.

    I live an hour outside SL and a piece of crap house with no land (1/8 acre), no garage, built in the 50s and is rundown just went for $250,000.
    Look elsewhere Utah is just not worth it.

    I'm trying to get back into trucking to get a house outside Utah.
