J. Canell/Truck driving school memories

J. Canell over on Youtube did a series on his experience going to truck driving school. He's a good story teller so it's pretty entertaining and he has some interesting insights...

He is also doing a series on his time with his trainer at his first trucking job.

Drivers from other Countries

There's an Australian on Youtube (alwaysoffroad) who has done trucking in North America. He's back in Australia now, but I believe he got a trucking job through a canadian company. It may be easier getting a truck job via Canada.

Con-Way LTL drivers

Two boards you might try:

Truckingboards.com is a big LTL hangout but the style/culture of the board sometimes makes it difficult get simple answers to questions. In other words, lots of snark...but it is interesting to read to get an idea of attitudes and culture at different companies.

Thetruckersreport.com has an LTL subforum as well as well as a Conway subforum. Note: the Conway forum is oriented more towards Truckload (OTR) than Freightload (LTL). Generally a little more focused so you might get more useful responses....

This is coming from someone who is trying to become a Class A driver...

How can I be happy trucking when I get really lonely on the road and hate being away from home?

Consider bus driving as another option if you already have (or can get) your passenger endorsement. Of course, you'll need to be comfortable dealing with people in all sorts of situations....

In cab surviellance?

I believe Conway Freightload is rolling out driver facing cameras. Not something I would care for but I guess I could learn to tolerate it.

About Us

TruckingTruth was founded by Brett Aquila (that's me!), a 15 year truck driving veteran, in January 2007. After 15 years on the road I wanted to help people understand the trucking industry and everything that came with the career and lifestyle of an over the road trucker. We'll help you make the right choices and prepare for a great start to your trucking career.
