First thing most people ask about. MONEY. I made $450 first week wife only made $90 the first week. So depends on your trainer how much you make. My trainer and me ran 5000-6000 miles a week. Wife's trainer drove half as much as her. They got almost no miles the first week and averaged around 3500 miles a week after that. You should go into this knowing any 2 people put in a small space for long enough will butt heads. Get over it and move on. You will get your miles way faster then your back ups. make sure to ask if you can do a back up each time you stop. Eating on the road is EXPENSIVE so if you can bring plenty of money or eat light. SHOWERS. Yeah about that every 3 days it seems trainer will pay for them with reward points at truck stops. All in all its been fun. seen plenty of beautiful sights, sandstorms, thunderstorms, high winds, and mountain passes all while dodging idiot 4wheelers. The BEST part was the peace you have when your by yourself its quiet and your watching the ever changing scenery . The WORST part was the desert at night hour after hour after hour of nothing. GOOD LUCK and many miles.
