Hi TT. Just stopping by to give you an update on me. I'm at the end of my first month OTR solo. It has been challenging. Backing up to some wierd docks have been the worst. I'm very slow, and goal several times, but I've always been successful. By successful, I mean I get the dock bumped, and haven't hit anything! I love my truck. The big city traffic is manageable. So after years of local driving.... I'm succeeding! I owe this to you guys. Thank you.

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.

Thank you! My furthest load? 1085 miles from pick up to delivery. I'm averaging 2800 miles a week. I'm trying to get to 3000....
