Can Truck Drivers Find Churches On The Road?

Truck stop ministries are in the TAs and some Petros. They are headquartered at the TAs in Jackson Georgia. I will be going to the one at the TA in Baldwin Florida tomorrow at 11 am. You can Google truck stop ministries and see all there locations.

Questions if anyone knows about it

I have owned 2 trucks in the past and I am getting ready to buy my third one soon and no way I would do it for a nickel more. You have to pay 8 percent more in taxes and a blown steer tire on the side of the road is 1000 bucks.

4 car carrier summer job NJ to Florida

It does not need a sleeper to be legal. You have to log off duty but you can sleep in the truck. If it is diesel you can idle and run a.c. with the window down a little. I have been paid on a 1099 most of my life it is not illegal as long as it is not forced dispatch. Sounds like a hard job because of the lack of a sleeper. Also you will have to buy all your meals at restaurants and it gets expensive. You will be stuck waiting for a load at times and I would hate sitting around in a pick up truck for 24 to 48 hours so you are going to need a motel from time to time.

Is it ever going to get better?

This is the slow season. It usually picks up in the middle of April. You should be getting more miles soon. The first quarter is always slow.

DAC says I ran off road (technically true). Unemployable for 5 years now?

Put your side of the story on dac it will help. What happened to you could happen to anyone. Good thing you made the decision to shut down.
