Redeemers Consript's Bio

My wife and I just recently began this journey together. The life of a truck driver is indeed a very different way of life. I am glad that I have my wife to share it with.

New to the road

Well they finally got us out of Cali. The truck broke down in Utah, we made it like 700 miles of a 2000 mile trip. The good news is we have a 2015 Freightliner waiting for us in Cedar Rapids. I'll be glad when we got a good truck, and we start rolling.

Trailer pull

Ok, I have a question for the veteran truckers. My wife and I are finally on the road. We picked up a load from Conway, in Sacramento, headed for Illinois. The trailer is one of CRST's older trailers, which tend to pull to the right. My wife tends to hug the right side, and she is worried about it. Is there anything that we can do to stop the trailer from pulling. Any advice would be appreciated.

How could that be done. Max I have been able to drive a day is approximately 640 miles before my clock runs out on an 11 hour drive day. And that is when the shipping and receiving gods are in alignment. Not to mention traffic. 640 x 7 4480. I know I'll never get 7 solid days though. Sorry just adding

I just got through with my trainer a couple weeks ago, and I, even during training could average almost 700 miles, with 30 minutes to spare at the end of my shift, driving all night, and that's was with areas of construction, and at CRST, our trucks are governed to 66 mph.

Married military couple looking to driver OTR as a team

I can only speak for CRST, and yes safety is a big deal to them. My wife and I just completed all our training, and just got on a truck together. If all goes well, you would be able to get through school and training in as little as 7 weeks and be on a truck together. As for the pay, it really depends on how hard you work, and your punctuality. Plenty of people are very negative, but if you pay close enough attention, they are the ones who really don't try hard and make excuses, and blame everyone else for their problems. There are plenty of good companies out there. Trucking companies that do team, such as CRST, really like married couples, because statistically they are more stable, and stick around longer. The biggest thing about CRST that impresses my wife and I is the fact that they are very serious about safety, they use the "Smith System" which is what they teach for safety. It's a very simple concept, and works well if you use it correctly. I wish you well as you plan this new journey, and may you be as blessed as my wife and I have been so far.smile.gif

We did our training in Cedar Rapids, though we have been in Okc a few times.

Yeah, and this one was worth the work, the last occupant left a bunch of stuff that we won't have to buy now. We probably got $120 worth of stuff that's either brand new or close.

Yay!!!! We are finally on a truck together. The truck sucks, it was a rescue, and the previous occupants didn't even try to clean it. They are working on getting us a new truck. We spent hours cleaning this truck, and now can't wait to get a load out, and get started making money together. dancing-dog.gif

I have been on here, reading articles during the process of deciding what direction to go. An article on this website was the proverbial tie breaker, that made us choose CRST. I do however wish that you guys had an iPhone app for accessing this, but I will just keep it bookmarked in my browser. I'm hoping to get my wife on here as well, as there is a section for ladies in this industry to get advice.

My wife and I have recently become OTR truck drivers. So far the experience has been very different, yet awesome. We work for CRST. I am leaving today to get started on the road while she finishes her training. We will meet up in a couple weeks, and begin our journey together. We have made several good friends through this process so far, and look forward to making many more.
