He went through my personal belongings!!

Last week after passing the scale I was pulled over for a DOT inspection. Figured it was routine when the officer asked if could see the inside of my truck. I got nothing to hide so I said sure. I was not carrying anything I shouldn't, but all of a sudden he starts rifling through my stuff and finds a large plastic cooking knife that was next to a spatula and some seasonings under my seat. I have a microwave in the back and sometimes I cook stuff in it. I am not a criminal but this guy said I was lucky he didn’t arrest me right there. For what? Carrying a large plastic knife??! He also told me he could put me out of service. My wife and kids need me and we NEED this money so I was polite and listened to everything he said, but it sucked. I wish I had told him NO when he asked if he could look around. Would that have been worse you think? Did I do the right thing?

Not everyone understands

Trucking is not a job it’s a lifestyle am I right? Sounds stupid but it’s true. You work long ass hours, see some of the most beautiful sights in the world and some of the worst. You eat bad food on the road but meet good people. To me the road is home, always has been. You shouldn’t truck if you just need a job, because you’re setting yourself up to fail. You truck because you’re ready for a challenge and you want to make a change in your life. Anyone with me on this? Looking forward to meeting some other truckers on here.

Truckin ain't easy

If you want a balanced life I think you have to get home most nights and eat dinner with your family or at least get home. That’s what a 9-5 job provides. There are some truck driving jobs that allow that, but most of us over the road haulers do not have a balanced life in my opinion. Of course everyone has an idea of what they want their life to be like. To me, a good day on the job is lots of miles, drop and hooks, and being able to get to the truck stop early to find a spot and have a nice clean hot shower followed by a good meal. What makes it a really great day is if I am going to make it home that night after being away 12 to 19 days on the road.

Keep my girl or my job???

I just started trucking to help pay off some of my loans. I like it more than I thought I would, but recently my girl asked me to stop. She says I don't spend enough time with her anymore. She said to pick my job or her, that's messed up! I like making money, I NEED it! I feel like I am screwed either way here, but should I keep the girl or the job?
