Preparing For School
Well... I was a very happily married stay at home dad from San Francisco. Wife wanted to move back home to raise our girls (3~5) in the country Upstate New York Berkshires area. Within 8 months she took the girls and moved in with her Mother and filed for custody and support.
And now wants to fast track divorce... I don't think she is happy...;}
I have a good construction job now but looking at trucking to reboot and retool my life to help me support my girls long term... i.e child support, save for house and start college funds/savings etc...
I am a workaholic and an introvert, always busy doing or fixing something. I love driving, working on my own vehicles and help others whenever I can.
I have been a builder, general contractor and glorified handyman. I can be gregarious at times but usually run solo. I am also a deep thinker, my name is Aristotle after all, and I can pretty well hold my own living up to that birthright... Well at least until I get too cocky, then I drop a few pegs...;} I have an IQ of 127 but haven't used it much. I can see thru a lot of the corporate, social, political and media bs of everyday life but I'm just not interested in playing those games.
I am 48 and looking at trucking as a major career move to help get me past this midlife crisis and on through the next 20 or so years. And from what I have read from the blogs and forums on this site it looks like I'll be in some good company. I'm glad I stumbled onto truckingtruth, it's given me some good insight. And motivation to keep going...
