I've said thank you before in helping me get the courage to get into school, get my license and recently get my endorsements. This time I'd like to give a general thank you for helping me get my life in order and on a good career path.

If it wasn't for this site and the good people here I wouldn't be where I am now. I asked my lady to marry me on Christmas because now I have a career and I'm looking forward to driving in my future (but in all honesty I'm looking for more local work instead of OTR). None the less, thank you for being here and helping myself and other students/drivers!

It's not just the lessons, knowledge and wisdom that I appreciate but also the drive to help other people in this industry.

p.s. asking her Dad for the blessing was waaaay harder. Amiright guys?


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.

There's a giant communication barrier between me and my wife's parents. Asking for their blessing was challenging!

Congratulations man! I hope it was special.

Congrats on popping the question and on the career choice!

Oh, yeah... 23 years ago, my future Father-in-Law wanted to make sure we weren't just "playing house" when his daughter and I asked him for his blessing to live together before we got married.

Hey Congrats Mike! It's awesome hearing that things are going well for you in both your personal life and your career. It's amazing how powerful a great attitude can be and it certainly doesn't hurt to have some supportive people behind you. I'm really glad to hear you're in such a great place right now and that we've been able to contribute to that in our own way. I'm sure you'll have plenty of opportunities to contribute to others that come into this career behind you and of course your family will always be counting on you. There's never a shortage of opportunities to help people out, that's for sure.

Congrats!!! I hope everything goes great for you guys. My DH got off easy, my Dad didn't care one way or the other.

Congratulations man! I never had to go through my wives father. Mater of fact my mother in law offered me a place to live when my relationship with my own family was not going well. Wired huh?
