Good heads up driving old school! U never know when it will happen...When I was hauling grain 2 years ago I was coming back from an elevator in Gladstone Illinois and was on Highway 34 2 lane it just started raining hard and I drove about 10 miles back to a field about 2 miles from my turn off a car in front of me about 50 yards hit a big puddle on the highway and hydroplaned side ways in front of me I hit the brakes the truck started to jack knife on the oils and fresh rain on the road the car started to hit the right ditch my truck pitched left the trailer headed straight I let off the brake the truck hooked and I stared it around the car front end still on the road I missed it with truck and trailer but boy it shook me up it was a close one..so ya I know it can happen fast

Trucking

Thanks all, I have driven a semi before as I hauled grain and livestock (hogs) for a previous employer but I was exempt from having to have a cdl under farm exemption. .Also my step dad was a trucker his whole life so I went with him whenever I could .I have always loved trucking first truck I rode in was a cab over. .only reason I waited so long to pull the trigger on truckingtrucking was my family but I'm divorced and my kids are almost grown so now time for dad to do a job he wants to do! I have done the physical labor jobs for over 15 years and have had back surgery and 2 knee surgery to show for it so enough is enough of that crap..my past injury don't bother me any so I'm ready to get r done
