I enjoy the daily variations in this job. Some days I'm outdoors, other days I'm just driving, some days I get a little of both. Some days it's not always fun, but it is always challenging. For me that is what makes life and working enjoyable. I need to be challenged each day, I want to try my best and accomplish something each day.

I cannot agree more with those sentences. I used to work on a farm and I remember the feeling that I felt every day after I got done with the job assignments and how it made me feel like I did something well and worthwhile. Well everything that you wrote about and did says everything that I want to do. Mr. Old School I cannot express the gratitude I have for not only this thread here but for all the help that you have given to me and other truckers and future truckers on this forum. I was certain that I wanted to haul the freight that a flat-bedder gets to haul and sometimes that is pretty neat, what you documented here has helped me confirm that I want to be a flat-bedder. It sure has some pretty neat loads that you carried on your 10 day journey. The scenery was sure gorgeous! Once again thank you! smile.gif

I know my reply comes late to this post but it stand out, to this day at least, as a beacon for those who seek respectable work, purposeful work and an opportunity to demonstrate to that environment a genuine desire to be a part of something beyond themselves that provides a service to our nation's needs. As a veteran, I can say because of Old School I have a deeper affirmation of why I am becoming an American Trucker!
