Sleep Schedule

Hello Lady Lanes, I drove truck for 20 years, you will get into your own routine out there and yes there will be times when your log book says your on the sleeper line however no one told your body that lol, there will be times when your sleep pattern will be interrupted. The important thing to remember is that you will have to learn how to adjust to things like daylight saving time, this always messed with me. Your loads don't always go smooth either therefore you may be running late or may have had a break down, these are all things that will interrupt your sleep schedule. The truth is when I was driving I always got my rest but at all different times of the day and night. There is no set schedules in trucking just to be honest with you. However it is a wonderful career choice and if you love traveling then you will most likely love it. For me learning to adjust was a small price to pay for a joyous life changing experience. Good luck and I hope you decide to go for it :)
