Dave Reid On The Web
My first career was in the insurance business...did a 20 year hitch. After getting burned out with that, I drove a taxi for 3 years, then was hired to be a manager with the company...ultimatedly I became president, coo, and a partner in the company that owned about 100 vehicles - taxicabs, limousines, paratransit vans, small buses, etc. I also obtained my class B CDL around 2004, and drove various buses and so forth part time.
The business got into financial troubles...loss of the major paratransit contract and the uber/lyft cancer. So, I upgraded the CDL to a Class A. I drove limo coaches, buses, and motorcoaches for a year or so, and now I want a life on the open road so I became an OTR driver. Recently, I became a certified trainer with Pride Transport and started working with students. I love it!
I don't really live anywhere, so I can go wherever the wind blows.
I hope to get to some baseball games and concerts, etc. while out and about.
I've pulled drive vans (briefly), and the reefers I now tug around).
I list my city as Baltimore since something needs to go in that box, but I don't really have a city right now and don't expect to in the next few years. I was born in Baltimore and spent my first twenty years in Harford County, Maryland. Then, I moved to Jackson, Michigan...from there to Ann Arbor. I lived in Michigan most of my life, until I was about 57. Now, I live on the road, and take my time off in various locations where my friends and relatives live.
I'm a big fan of the Detroit Tigers, and also the Detroit Red Wings.
