Rookie Solo Driver
Spent most of my working life in the printing industry. Decided back in 2001 or so I wanted to get out of printing and get rich in trucking! 8) Went to Western Pacific Truck Driving School in Portland, OR and got a job driving for Swift. Drove for Swift for 2 years OTR. Made so many mistakes it's beyond counting! I used to think I was pretty hot stuff. Driving truck cooled Mr Hot Stuff down real quick. I quit driving in the winter of 2002 somewhere between Salt Lake and Winnemucca in the high desert at about 3 in the morning. I had to pull off the road and cry for about an hour or so because I was so darn lonely. Never had that experience before of since. UGH!
Fast forward 12 or 13 years and I'm back driving again. Company I was printing for closed their doors. Printing jobs are hard to come by these days; but in truckin' you can always find a job if you can make a truck go forward! I can easily make a truck go forward, it's the other direction that is a bit iffy for me. Currently drivin a poor old beat up Volvo doin short haul between Portland and Seattle for a small company with three trucks and doing ok. 61 years old Former dope fiend and drunkard. I'll have 25 years next month if I don't get drunk or die before then. Like fast bikes, loose women, and big trucks
