(second edition) I have been reading here for about a month. I expect to start school in mid January. My question is about the daily routine. I believe I understand that every day has potential to be quite different with new challenges. I get that. What I have some concerns about is after driving. I read a lot last week about parking difficulties and challenges. So here is what I would like to hear discussed.

2. What do you do after driving and all the work is done? Do you venture out of the truck? Normal jobs I would be home and interact wit family, friends, etc. Is this a very lonely existence? I know there are computers and phones and other technological devices that one can communicate with family, watch TV, movies etc. Maybe someone could describe a good day? others may pitch in with a typical day and others and discuss a not so good day?

Good day in trucking....you make all you appointments early and have very little traffic and you are bored out of your mind. A very boring day is a good day in trucking where nothing happens.

But really there is no perfect day in trucking. Just decent ones.

Yes this is a very lonely job. Unless you run teams like I do there are times you will not talk to another humans for 10 to 15 hours at a time.
