Advice for single truckers who are homeowners

Thanks for all your suggestions.

The house sitting & Air B&B are probably not for me. A security system is a must and todays systems being more than just burglar alarms should be able to alert to something like a furnace outage. Perhaps it's more of a property management company question although one small house might not be worth their while. BK is correct in that I should be able to get back periodically. It's really just a question of peace of mind knowing that if something happens when I am hundreds of miles away, I have someone to call upon to get it taken care of. The local security system company might know of someone. My lawn guy is not close by and our local post office likely does not have the personal level of service that Laura's does!

Advice for single truckers who are homeowners

Hello, forgive me is this has been covered already although I cannot find anything in the topic list.

After 25 years+ in the auto parts business, I have become disillusioned and for over two years now have been considering getting my CDL and driving OTR to see our wonderful country that I have officially become a citizen of after 20 years.

I am single so can come & go as I please and don't mind my own company so that checks a couple of OTR boxes I reckon.

However, I own as opposed to rent my home so one of my biggest concerns with embarking on this career is leaving it unattended for long periods. Not interested in selling it.

What advice would other truckers in my situation have concerning handling: emergency repairs, mail/packages & general security?

My family & close friends are also some distance away (FL, TN, Ontario, WA) and maybe OTR would allow me to see them more if routes & resets aligned?

Thanks, Brad
