Awesome! So it won't hurt to give it a go...but I won't stress over it any more. Thanks for the info!

This is really the first time I've totally let everything go (both jobs) and stepped out on faith toward a brand new career since becoming a homeowner and having other financial responsibilities. There are just so many factors that play into how successful you are that it's a little daunting.

Yes there is. One thing to keep in mind: about 18 million Americans have learned how to drive a bug truck. Most of them went to a school to learn. Most of those probably had those "why an i doing this? I want to quit!" moments, but kept slogging through. Now they have great careers.


Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

I totally agree, driving a bug truck is a big responsibulity. You have all sorts of hazmat , from pesticide, petrolium, also large amounts of product diluted in water. Turn the vehical over on a high way and you are looking at a multi thousand dollar clean up. shocked.png


Hazardous Materials

Explosive, flammable, poisonous or otherwise potentially dangerous cargo. Large amounts of especially hazardous cargo are required to be placarded under HAZMAT regulations

On a serious note, Errol and others with experience can tell you that many have come on TT with similar concerns and are doing well. To name one would be CM Chickie Monster.
