We have a great new article from Rainy:

Trucking Is A Total Culture Shock

The radical lifestyle that a trucker lives is what forces most people out of trucking. Almost anyone can figure out how to shift, steer, and back up a truck. It's the lifestyle that most people can't handle.

In the beginning everyone is surprised by how demanding and unusual the lifestyle is. You have so many new elements you've never dealt with before and for many of us there is no comparison to anything we've done in the past. It almost feels like you're in a whole new world.

If you're considering a career in trucking or you're getting ready to make the leap you really need to read this article so you have some understanding of what lies ahead. You'll need to be ready to roll with the punches and adjust on the fly if you want to survive in this industry.

Great article. I can't wait to make the transition to a new job and new way of life. I have goals and expectations, but just the idea of not sitting here behind this computer everyday, keeps me mentally motivated, to study a little each day.

Great article, Rainy! No shocker there... Getting used to seeing great articles from you and Old School.

Life is so hectic, strange, and unknown right now that I welcome the shock.
