Grew up on a farm in IL. Drove a ten wheeler for a long time up and down US 41 and into KY and IN. Those trucks are probably the most unsafe vehicles on the road. Weighing 48,000 lbs and having only three axles to stop, quite tough. We have had about 8 different semis on the farm. Currently (see avatar) we have a 379 Pete with a 500 Cat and a Fuller 13 speed. But... Now the farm is being sold. So, after getting my CDL, I am going to be driving on the road now.
I have a wife and two kids. A son (older) and a daughter. Great kids. Great wife. I have a great life, too. That is why I want regional, so I can get home to see my family as often as possible. Brett's book does a wonderful job of giving insight to trucking, and is a valuable resource. I enjoy playing chess and laughing. I have done stand up comedy twice. I am different than most.
Headed up to Veriha for orientation Sunday, December 06, 2015.
I worked at Veriha for about a year, but the pay was just not enough. Now driving for FedEx.
