    Jeez. So trucking holds no problems for you then there in NYC.

    I started off running Hunts among other spots up there when I was 21 and knew nothing at all. (Just as well...)

    I tell you this much. If you have not seen America you should. It's worth it either being paid as a trucker or on your own dime with a paid off RV.

    Good luck to you.

    If I were in your shoes, I'd consider driving a dump truck for a construction or asphalt company. In my area, if you're dependable and easy on equipment, with all of the endorsements and experience you have you'd be hired in a minute.

    Find a company with newer equipment that will put you in a quad with an automatic or automated manual. You'll have a job until you can't or don't want to drive anymore.
     
    luv2fly352 Thanks this.
