I've been driving truck since 2018. My experience is all local Seattle area driving. Dry van, flatbed, curtain side, and double dry bulk tankers. 80,000 and 105,500.
I haven't squished anything beyond two cones at a construction site, and they really had it coming (knock on wood).
I've worked for companies where I was the sole CDL driver at my location and also one of 40. I have a completely different perspective than the folks that drive OTR or regional for medium to large trucking companies, though I'd like to try regional trucking to see how it fits. Jim Palmer (or Wilson Logistics now, I guess) would probably be the company to tempt me into it when I'm ready.
