I think that is a question for her. If you are just planning and she is an emotional wreck, maybe the separation for will be too much, and cause you to be distracted and a danger to yourself and others while driving

Best of luck Chris

While your plan is for her to leave “work” to concentrate on school while you’re off earning the money, she’s gonna have a new job; managing everything else while you’re gone. And that can be a full time job and a little overwhelming.

It can and does work for many of us. Just don’t kid yourself by not realizing that anything you currently do around the house will either not get done, have to be done by her or you’ll pay someone to do it.

I’m in my 50’s, started trucking 3+years ago and my family time is better quality time than before. But there are adjustments and strains on the relationship.

I don’t have your answers. But, if you both have unified goals, a plan to achieve those goals AND you work together, I believe you’ll be looking back in five years with a great deal of pride.

I hope this helps.

I'm trying to get her to realize that accomplishing great things sometimes requires sacrifices. That my being gone is the only way I know to fully support her and the kids. I'm doing everything I can to help her accomplish her goals.That a year will fly by. She'll be an RN in a year making good money and I'll be able to make decent money as well and we can finally live the life we've always wanted instead of constantly struggeling. I have until August 13th when I go to orientation to convince her that this is the best way to accomplish our long term goals. I really do love trucking and the road but I really love her too. I sure hope she doesn't make me choose between my 2 loves!


When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

I had to finally register because of this topic.

Danny Herman trucking is in my hometown, Mountain City, TN. I never met him personally, but I have heard he is a nice guy. He owns a LOT of property in the county, and has been in business there for many years, 30 or so, I believe.

Recently, I helped my brother replace the bridge to our property, located beside some property he owns ( an Xmas tree farm). We asked if we could drive across his property while it was being replaced, and also bring concrete trucks across. He said no problem, do whatever you need to do, no hesitation at all.

So, while I know nothing about DHT, he is personally OK in my book.
