Driving jobs that aren't trucking.

I have a specific question. Are there any driving jobs where I can drive trucker distances every day but with my own vehicle? Like 500 or 600 miles a day transporting whatever.

Are "manual transmissions only" drivers supertruckers?

“Garbage” as in; most of what is written on Truckers Report, not meant as an insult to you or what you wrote.

I got it your good

I started this thread recently over there. It's identical to this one.

Go over onto thetruckersreport.com and you'll find the people I'm talking about.

Autos are for sissies. I want full control over my truck. What happened to a man's pride in being a man. Etc.

I don't know how have a stick that you move and a third pedal makes you better but ok. Just look at some of the auto vs manual discussions on the forum over there. There's no shortage of testosterone filled Rambo types shaming the auto drivers.

What do you guys think?

Nervous to get back into trucks.

I got my cdl in 2018 never used it due to driving record. Record is clean now. Every time I think about going to get my license upgraded back to cdl, I think of how nervous I was in training. Maneuvering a huge tractor trailer through turns and traffic still makes me nervous thinking about it. All that shifting I had to do on the 13 speed. I'd definitely go to an automated manual because they have become very good and I'd like to focus more on the road. Does anyone here ever feel the way I do? What advice do you have? Thanks.

Is it still worth it to become a trucker?

Of course it's still worth getting into trucking, but it all depends on the person. You can make some pretty good money depending on the type of driver you will be. Quick question, did you have your CDL this whole time or did you downgrade to a normal licenses?

I downgraded

I had a cdl years ago and never used it because my driving record was bad at the time. Now I am wondering if it's a good idea to get into the field. Or is it bad and it's best to go into the computer field, etc. nowadays? I almost feel scared to drive such a big vehicle again lol. Being in the right gear at the right time etc. Which is why I would prefer automatic.

So, drivers, do you recommend getting into the field or not? If not, what other field with a short training time would you recommend?

Is there really a trucker shortage?

You hear on the news that the country needs 50,000 truckers. It sounds quite excessive. What do you guys think?
