Company Driver In Training
I am from Texas.I moved to Asheville NC to get out of the heat.I had spent the biggest part of my life in construction.Now that I'am getting older (almost 50) I thought to retire to the mountains and keep myself busy with a tractor business digging and mowing .then in the middle of a six acre field i started thinking of all the things i had never done all the sights and experiences i missed out on.At night on the pillow these thoughts of traveling would accompany me to sleep.i always liked the calculations of a trip the miles,fuel,time,and scheduled stops. One day ,while listening to the hum of my little tractor I realized I was too young to be put out to pasture.,I decided to become an OTR driver . if I were up to the challenge i plan to be good at it.i should mention that my hobbies and passions include building dirt,bees,and loving my wife.If you want to talk about dirt or honeybees, i could talk all day.i know nothing about women.
I did my training with Alliance tractor trailer in arden (flecher) NC,It was weeks into training with 5 hrs of actual road driving,before I felt confident enough to think this may just work out. Now I am down shifting and double clutching with more confidence, I can work on refining my trailer tracking skills. Two daunting skills Backing and pre trip inspection came easy for me for reasons I can not explain. Training in mountainous terrain is very challenging but that's what I am here for, so it's been a real thrill.
