Reality of Truck Driving
I’m a woman who’s been driving solo professionally for several years. Yes, you get to see the country side, but it’s not like in a car. You see highways and industrial areas.
The best experience I had was delivering water and MREs for FEMA during Katrina and Rita. It was very rewarding and I met my husband in a staging area.
If you are able to work alone and don’t have to get home every week, it might be worth it. It’s not just a job, though. It’s a lifestyle. Read up on it before you decide.
Also, I recommend US Xpress to drive for. Their trucks are newer and they have automatic transmissions. The Volvos are the penthouse of trucks, but they also have Freighliners, Kenworths and Petes. Stay away from Werner because you won’t get miles since you can’t fix your logs (theirs are paperless). Also stay away from CRST and others who have slip seating and where you have to team. You will never feel at home in your truck.
p.s. Mine has a refrigerator, microwave, tv, dvd player, and flushable portapotty. The table and chairs come standard in the Volvo.
