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.

Trucking is a life-style. If, you just do it to get paid, I guess 3 years and you're doing something different. If, you call the road your home, then you are doing what you want, where you want to do it, enjoy. 2009, 10 years, 1 million miles later, the road is my home!

You got that right. Little less than 20 years under my belt. It is a lifestyle. Not just a job & paycheck

Drove truck 47 years , quit the road as these new breed of truck drivers think they own the road. Back in the day we would stop and help a driver broke down . Not today , they don't even slow down for you. Very few will even let you know if the chicken coop is open.

Been trucking since 63, off and on, mostly on, Never said I liked it but I've never been hungry or worried about a job. It's a way of life that's not for everyone but I will add I've met a lot of good people I can now call friends.
