This forum is a breath of "fresh air"

Hi everyone!....Let me just say that this is the most POSITIVE yet truthful trucking forum I have seen...I have about 21 yrs of trucking experience...Over 7 with Schneider, around 7 years hauling gasoline for a local company (Tanker Trucks) and most recently I spent just under 7 yrs working for Toys R Us...Toys R us was a great company to work for (Heme every day)...I would still be there today except that they decided to sell their transportation division last June to JB Hunt...After thinking long and hard, I declined JB's offer to work for them and decided to try selling Real Estate instead....(at that time I felt like I needed a change)

Now we fast forward almost a year later and I find I miss driving and do not like being in an office environment as much as I thought I would, so... what to do and where to go???...I have never had a ticket and had one accident (non-preventable) in my 21 yrs of driving so I feel as though I could qualify most anywhere....I could use some advice....My inclination is to rejoin Schneider but am wondering if being away from driving over the last 11 months will hurt me pay wise, etc......I also have "local" options, but here in Virginia Beach, most local companies are relatively low paying and also involve port work...I did port work for 2 years with Toys r Us and was not fond of it...Would much rather run miles even if it means being gone from home..The kids are grown and my wife is very understanding....I have about 6 yrs till retirement..Any ideas or suggestions would be welcome??...Thx..Mike in Va Beach
