The Grand Adventure

Ive been soaking in tons of threads from this website and learning so much. Really thankful I live in an era where information is so readily available!! Thank you to all of you who take the time to reply, give advice, share information and just plain encourage.

So..... My husband and I married three years ago. He is about to retire from his Teamster job of 27 years and I thought wouldnt it be grand if we team drove together??!!?? He was dubious and rather non committal, and probably thought I was just having one of my hair brained ideas. Well, when I graduated from CDL school, he took me and the idea a whole lot more seriously!!

We are three months from his official retirement. I have been applying like crazy to dozens of companies and speaking with more recruiters then I can count. This process alone has been an eye opening experience..... kind of reminds me of the Army recruiters back in the day!

Anyway, we have narrowed the field down to Covenant and Werner......and now its a matter of one of us convincing the other as to which we should go with!! I'll ulitmatetly support whatever he decides because at the end of the day, I trust him to make the right choice for us.

If you have any advice, tips or additional information regarding either of these companies feel free to post, ( Ive read through every thread I could find on both on here previously) thank you in advance!
