Young enough to climb into the back of a trailer, old enough to know, "best not to jump out of it."

54 when I started, 58 now.

Guess it depends... First time driving straight trucks I was 8 or 9. My grandfather rented EZ-Haul trucks at his gas station and I would pull them around front for fuel and park them in back. Started getting paid for driving straight trucks at age 24. Got my Class A at age 50.
