A Week In The Life Of A Flatbed Driver

I am really really late to this party, but as a prospective driver, this was so useful in painting a clear picture of some of the ups and downs. It is very well written. Thank you OS. 😊

Planning to take the leap, but have questions.

So, a little background. My dad was a trucker. My uncle, my brother, my cousin have all been truckers. I have always thought about becoming a truck driver as I LOVE being alone with nothing but the road and a good audio book or music. To me, that's paradise. What's held me back til now was I had a young step daughter that we only got every other weekend, and I didn't want to miss those moments with her. Well, she's well into her teens and too busy to see us anymore, lol.

I've worked nothing but customer service jobs my whole life and I am TIRED of pretending that people aren't rude jerks, lol. I'm ready to start a new career path and am leaning towards company sponsored CDL training. The question just becomes, which one?

I've been perusing these blogs for a couple years now and see that most of them have their benefits. I was wondering if there were any that allow you to take a pet (or 2) and allow you to color your hair purple, or pink, or any alternative colors? I've never worked a job that let me color my hair an unnatural color and I have always wanted purple hair. Silly, I know, but there it is.

Any advice you all have for a woman planning to take that leap in a month would also be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
