I have a lifestyle now. (Click bait for the win). It doesn't feel like work, it just feels like my way of life now. It feels good to wake up in the morning and want to work. My life is dictated by pick up and delivery times. What I do with my time, to make it, is all up to me.

I was told I wouldn't make any money and that I would quit after a month, but I have already found out those were big lies. I have paid off lots of debt and I have grossed more than I did last year in 6 months.

OTR truck driving is slowly becoming a lifestyle that fits me better with each passing day. It was hard at first but little by little I get better. I just feel good today and wanted to share this, with all the negativity going around the internet, I want to show people that otr truck driving is worth it, especially if it fits ones lifestly.

OTR:

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.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

Yes you are!

Haha glad you're enjoying the lifestyle man. It's amazing how much time it takes to adjust to living out here and doing otr. I've been out here for almost nine months solo and I'm just now starting to feel comfortable. That's really cool that you've paid off alot of debt too.

Yeah, I thought we had Bucket II!

I'd like to point out that Mr Gladhand is a company driver, and still was able to

pay off lots of debt and I have grossed more than I did last year in 6 months.
