Rookie Solo Driver
Well lets see….
Many years ago I was 18 and graduation was just around the corner and my aunt came to me and asked me what I was going to do for a job after graduation. I been working most of my life either bucking hay in the summer, fast food during school, and I never thought about having to work year around. What do you mean I don’t get summers off? No Christmas vacation? I thought to myself “This s**t just got real“.
So I thought about college but decided against that, I have a high IQ and never struggled in school but college didn’t appeal to me. I came from a blue collar family and we all worked hard for a living. Since I came from a family will a long line of veterans I decided to go into the Army to sereve my country that I love. I spent the next 11 years as a track vehicle mechanic and specialized in rebuilding the M1 Abrams turbine engine.
After 11 years I decided to get out because life was happening, my wife was pregnant and I decided it was a good time to move on. So I then became a firefighter with a small town in southern New Mexico. I really enjoyed the adrenaline rush of being inside a burning building. After four years of doing that I was offered a job in Law Enforcement where I loved the job and excelled at it and had a great time. After seven years of "chasing the bad guy" I decided to resign because of personal reasons.
I have always been into some type of construction, I was flipping houses on the side where I made tens of thousands of dollars and I also lost my ass on a few of them. But when the market fell out I lost everything. After law enforcememnt I started doing custom high end granite work. For three years I worked rock and made excellent money but i am getting too old to pick up several hundred pounds and carry it into a house up a hill in two feet of snow. This old man needs something different.
Since most of my family either drives big trucks or works on them for a living I decided to get my CDL and go over the road for a few years to see if I like the life style. When i was in high school i would run with my uncle in his extended nose Pete and I loved being on the road and to see what was around the next corner or see where we would wake up the next day. Oh and I found out when i was 18 what a "Lot Lizard" was at a a truck stop called the Tin Lizzy. Yeah my uncle was a little upset but thank God he stopped me before anything happened. HAHA
I have always enjoyed being alone and making decisions on my own. So here we go…. Let the dice roll and see what happens.
