Appalachained's Bio

I’ve been planning on trucking for a decade now. I think the lifestyle would suit me. I’ll likely never make in trucking what I make in my current job. The problem with my current job is it’s a job I can’t retire doing. I’m just reluctant to make the change because of financial reasons. So for now I’m just stacking my chips and getting everything in line for when I rip the band-aid off. Hopefully around the start of 2020.

My Roehl training adventure

This thread had been very informative. I think it rivals the Wine Taster Roehl diary especially for the specific concerns I have and had. Thank you for taking the time to do it amid the whirlwind that is CDL school. I look forward to reading the new diary.

Oh, and I forgot to mention, thanks for the kind words Appalachained. I really appreciate the encouragement. I'm glad your're enjoying my ramblings.

No problem and thank you for the link to your other thread. It was very helpful too. It and Brett addressed the bigger fear that I’m having. It’s almost eerie how similar our situations are. About the only difference is you’re in (were in) retail and I’m in a service industry. I too am tired of herding (34-38) cats. It’s getting hard to find employees and the ones you have get the attitude that they know you need them. I’m thinking about work even when I’m home etc... I even have a Mustang GT lol. So yeah, I’m hanging on every update.
