SCPO DRAGO's Bio

About to retire from Navy. Father was career driver his entire life so just seems like a good way to transition from military to civilian work. I always wanted to sit in the big boys seat when i would go with dad so nows my chance.

I would like to make money just like everyone does, but if you dont like what your doing then theres no amount of money thats worth it. Lifes too short to be unhappy.

That is precisely why I do what I do, no amount of money is worth it if you aren't happy with your job/career. I spent the last year of my military career watching & thinking about what I wanted when I retired.

I concur. Calling it quits after 23.5 and when I started looking at after service jobs, every place I looked either in the paper or online there is a huge amount of opportunities. Here in Maine you can husl pretty much what you want when you want. That is if you buy into all the propaganda. Just excited to get going on next phase of school and our lives. Thanks for your service.

I wouldn't pick pulling a particular trailer based on money. I would choose it on what fits you best. I'm a flatbedder for Prime and the lightweight reefer drivers make more per mile than I do. But I will keep flatbedding because I enjoy it.

I appreciate the great advice. I was always under the impression that flatbed got paid sort of a "flat rate" or fee to haul something from point a to point b. Depeding on what it is that your hauling and how far was what you charged some one. Guess I was way off tarck and tracking on that one. I would like to make money just like everyone does, but if you dont like what your doing then theres no amount of money thats worth it. Lifes too short to be unhappy.

About to finish cdl a training. I heard flatbed maybe more work but the money is much better. I dont mind hard work and being 6'2" should allow me to skip the pink ladder. Lol. Great site. Really helping me train and make educated decisions. Thanks.
