Hello y'all, me my wife my son my daughter we are moving to Grand Junction Colorado to be closer to family. I have had my CDL for four years, with tanker and Hazmat endorsements. I am currently working for an oilfield well plugging company. I move equipment from well to well all over Texas, New Mexico Louisiana Missouri Arkansas and Oklahoma. A lot of miles.

Anyhoo, we are moving to Grand Junction Colorado in the next couple months just to be closer to family and escape the tornadoes and crazy heat from East Texas.

Does anybody from the Trucking Truth world have worked in Grand Junction, Works in Grand Junction? Just kind of getting some ideas on what kind of jobs are out there? Also, what is the area like? I lived in northern Utah for 30 years so I do have some kind of idea but I've never been to Grand Junction. Anyways love this site and I've havnt been here in a while but when I have any kind of trucking question I come here first because of the vast knowledge that y'all have. Okay I'm done, thanks:)
