Rookie Solo Driver
Where do you start? I moved to Minnesota from Canada back in '89. I spent time in both the Canadian Army and the US Army. The Gulf War launched the 2nd day of my Basic Training. After 6 years in the Army, I spent over 22 years in the telecommunications industry, 19+ at the same company, until they laid me off as part of a head count reduction. And here we are today. I figure after dealing with so many people of all walks of life, I need a change. Telecommunications is volatile right now. I liked when I was a tech and saw my boss in the morning for 5 minutes and walked out the door to my truck to be "my own boss" the rest of the day. Most of the customers were cool, some were fun, others were just off their rockers! I think, and hope, that I will have a similar experience driving truck. "Being my own boss" during the day, figuring out what to do next so I get the job done, while at the same time seeing some people throughout the day. Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe it's wishful thinking on my part but I need a change either way. Best quote I never heeded, "Turn in your keys, your badge and your pager, then go enjoy the rest of your life". That was my first day 19+ years ago.
