What did you do before becoming a truck driver?

I worked for 16 years as a training professional in 5 different companies in a manufacturing industry. I could never make a strong enough argument to show the decision-makers the value of more training-as with everything, they just wanted it now, cheap, and good. After a significant live event, I've decided to take the opportunity to pursue something new. While there's probably no where, short of living a subsistence-based life in the woods, that doesn't have some kind of hierarchical BS to deal with, I thought that if I pared down the elements of my work to me, truck, road, load, distance, and time, I might gain perspective on whether to go back, or keep doing the new thing. We'll see. Thanks for your time. pr
