Rocket III Rider's Bio

I grew up in Woodstock, CT. After graduating high school I joined the US Navy and served for after 20 years. While in the Navy I tracked submarines flying in a LockHeed Martin S-3A Viking and deploying on the USS Kitty Hawk and USS Carl Vinson. I also served overseas in Japan, Spain and Italy and have pretty much traveled the world with the exception of the Middle East. I have been living in Charleston, SC since 1996 working as a contractor for the Dept of the Navy with 8 years being a small business owner. I lost my job/company during a 3 year divorce and started a journey in which to find myself.

After attempting to sell software, to sell cars, to kill bugs and to cook; I made the decision, after discussing with my wife, to make yet another career change and enter the world of trucking.

My hobbies are motorcycling (hence Rocket III Rider handle), snow skiing and camping.

BEGAN MY TRAINING AT ROEHL DAY 1 - 5 -- CONLEY, GA

Jeramy,

I’ll be moving to the SE regional division as of Mon. They don’t get as many miles and make a little less.

I have not calculated weekly mileage however, I prob avg 490/day. Some days less, some more. The most I’ve had in a single day is about 612.

I can’t help you out with the pay questions as I’m not up to speed on that program but I need to get there. It is performance based and some of the metrics used are, on time deliveries, avg mpg, accidents, passport, TWIC, etc.

Are you going to be working out of the Fary, IN term?

Rocket

So how has your first month out of training been?

Chris

Hey Chris,

First month out was with a driver trainer. That went really well for me. He was a great guy and very knowledgeable; I was lucky to have him.

I just completed about 1.5 mos out solo. I was nervous at first but after a couple of loads I settled down.

I’m really enjoying this career. The hardest part is being away from my wife. That part really sucks for me.

After I get some experience I want to move into lease and then o/o.

Roehl did not pay for transportation to the trng. I drove my car and used it to get to and from the term each day.

Roehl provides lunch Mon-Fri at the term. They also pay the cost of the hotel which includes breakfast. Dinner is on you.

I was trying to post a picture of the truck I finally got after completing all my trng but apparently I’m doing something wrong so it’s not posting.

My head will explode!***

Greg, really you are wearing yourself out. You're chasing down some things that are an absolute waste of time. Like the DUI thing you're stuck on. Why waste your time on something we've already explained to you, yet you insist on digging deeper as if you're going to uncover some conspiracy that we don't know about? Is this how you pursue other things that interest you? It's exhausting just reading your comments at times.

I agree; too much drama......
