New Team Truckers - Seeking Advice


I am brand new to this website and trucking in general. I am contemplating a career switch but am wanting some advice before making the leap.

My girlfriend and I have lived together for 3 years in the space of a 1br apartment. We have a fantastic relationship and are looking to become team truck drivers. I absolutely plan on proposing soon however I am financially not in any position to do so. I realize that what we want and the reality of things can be very different. It makes sense that team truckers earn more money, especially married couples. I do know that there are some companies that will pay for our CDLs however I am not sure what the 'catches' may be to accepting that kind of assistance.

My girlfriend and I are interested in becoming team truck drivers because we love spending time together, and because we want to travel the country non-stop. When it comes to traveling the country, are routes random at times or do drivers have a specific route? We would love a route that goes east coast to west coast as well as into Canada. What kinds of jobs would involve this kind of route?

I am 30 years old, I have never gotten a speeding ticket, DUI, etc. and have never been arrested. My record is spotless and I have three college degrees (that are becoming worthless day by day). I currently work in Information Technology however it's the kind of grind I don't want to waste my life on.

Thank you for any feedback whatsoever. -Andrew
