Any chance of getting it set so you have your car at home, take the truck there for hometime?

You're supposed to say "Everyone's right, Florida DOES suck!"

My Prime Upgrade / First Month Solo Experience

Could you keep your truck at home or nearby for hometime? Be nice to save the additional 300 miles driving home.

C.R. England Nightmare Experience (True Story, Need Help! Nondrug User Tested Positive!)

OTR would be terrible with issues like that at home, distracting.

After 3 months, I’m quitting

Hate to see you throwing in the towel. I find for my own backing problems, like most, oversteer. Turning the steering wheel waaaay to much to get the trailer reacting. Then it's hooked at an angle, pull back out, try again. Less is more, easier to slowly add more turn, than subtract. Kinda like cooking, put too much spice in at the start, might ruin the meal.

The verdict is in……. 110 years concurrent life sentences

It's quite amusing when people point to a country like Norway, and the "Happiness" reports, financial success, etc, etc..

"The U.S. could learn from Norway!"

*Norway, of course, is one of the whitest countries in the world. It’s residents are 83 percent Norwegian, who are ethnic North Germanic people, and another 8 percent is European.*

Norway is so happy and doing so well! LOL

Please help me decide between 2 companies

Old Dominion, Fed Ex, UPS, Gemini/Loves....

Your cart is WAAAAAY before the horse. Can't pick companies that have high pay, when you need experience to qualify for said high pay

Many options as Starter companies, absolutely nothing wrong with Swift, but if it's these two, and only these two...ACE.

Transitioning To Life OTR

As previously noted, could park it at a company terminal, could unhook the battery to preserve charge.

Getting ready to go Roehl

Great start to your new career! Still plenty of manual transmission trucks out there, no restriction could really be helpful as you progress along.

Got fired from Western Express

"My improvement has been night and day from the first day I started.I remember not being able to ally dock, parallel, stalling the truck all the time, messing up my pre trip and now I'm driving, shifting , backing, maneuvering, and pre tripping this truck like a pro. I came a long way from being the guy running over cones on the backing course..."

Where did this guy go??
