Surviving my 1st year

Yes we are on the same page. Thought about packing my truck with leftovers from home for meals. And maybe some snacks for the rest of the time

Live frugally at home, too. Off-brand, or store-brand, stuff tastes about the same as the name-brand food stuffs but can save you big bucks. Cut out everything unnecessary, the stuff you don’t need, the stuff you don’t use. Live on a budget and stick to that plan.

Spot on advice. You and the wife need to be a real team effort to succeed. Are you and the wife on the same page?

Surviving my 1st year

I have a fridge but not a 12 volt cooler.

Kenneth, my first piece of advice to any new driver is to become a regular here on Trucking Truth. Read everything. Ask questions. Post your experiences. This is the single best resource for new drivers on the internet or anywhere else. I'm a new driver and I can't even describe how much I've benefited personally.

Secondly, learn how to live frugally on the road. Don't eat at restaurants, learn to eat from your truck. Drink water, don't buy soda, etc. Do you have a refrigerator in your truck? Do you have a 12V cooler?

If you want to learn, you need to start asking specific questions in order to get accurate advice. Tell us a little more about yourself, your company and your driving experience so far. You will get a lot of sound advice here.

Surviving my 1st year

I am a new driver and need to know how to survive my first year over the road. My wife is a stay at home mom so me trying to find a happy medium is hard. We are adjusting to me being home when I can get home as we are use to it from my time in the oil field. The hard part is being able to pay Bills at home and have enough money to make sure she has enough money to buy essentials and food on top of me having enough for food on the road. Any advice would be helpful. Thank you in advance

I currently have a class b cdl with an automatic restriction. I am just wondering if I have to go through the entire exam again to upgrade to a class a.
