I lease a car and when I was otr I kept it at the drop yard where I parked my truck while on home time. I also shared a house with someone for many years which gives you someplace to come home to but greatly saves on living expenses. Good luck to you!

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.
