It`s been a while. I just wanted to drop in and say hello to the drivers on this forum who helped me get where I am now. I am parked in San Francisco near AT&T Park until load out Saturday night. Metallica y`all. A dream come true for me. I am working on three years in and loving it. Thank you all so much for giving me a solid foundation to grow from. Brett, thank you. Old School, thank you... Um... The guy from England, Arkansas, thank you. Thanks to everyone who kept it positive.

Newbs : Listen to what the veteran drivers say and apply the lessons to your current situation. Practice Practice Practice. Learn to drive by the seat of your pants. NEVER give up.

Nope. We did (our part of) load in yesterday and they go on Saturday night. There is no meet and greet for tour drivers.

It's not all doom and gloom as a truck driver. Yes, we see the shows, but, we also have to be ready to load out and roll after the show. We are literally the night drivers. When trucks are rolling out of the truck stops in the morning, we are rolling in praying there are enough empty spaces so we can just park and sleep. Then off to the next show.
