Introduction, followed by a million questions
Hey folks! I've been lurking for about six months, I figure it's time to say hey. I'm JZ, (you can call me Z, I feel like JZ is too formal), I'm currently a police Sergeant in NW Florida. I'm about a year from the point in my career where I can start burning leave, with an eventual retirement date of July of 2020. I'm considering an "encore career" as a truck driver. My two main questions are 1-can you do a ride-along with a driver, to see if this line of work is something you might really want to do? And 2-if you're burning terminal leave with your current employer, will companies hire you or would they want to wait until you're completely done? More questions will follow. It has been fun watching everyone's journeys, btw. There's a lot of wisdom in these masses.
