I've sold my house and I'm moving out tomorrow. Very much a lifestyle change influenced by my trucking experience. Living in a sleeper cab truck taught me that I don't need much to enjoy life.

I want to thank all the members here for the sound guidance I've received that has influenced my decisions. Especially the moderators who have corrected me and given me great advice. Especially G-Town, who has been both my greatest critic but, more importantly, my greatest teacher.

I'm moving to a fixer-upper property that I can develop into a truck-friendly situation. Inside parking on home time!. I'm looking forward to getting back into the wonderful adventure of OTR driving.

OTR:

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.

Thanks guys! Being on this site, TT, has seriously influenced me towards a simpler, less materialistic lifestyle. Really have learned a lot from everybody here. But while I know I can happily live in a sleeper cab, I'm going to stop there. Not going to downgrade further to cardboard boxes.

I sincerely wish you “all the best” Bruce.

Good luck and don’t hurt yourself. I’ve renovated many homes...it’s hard on the body, especially one (like mine) with lots of miles on it.

Thanks, G-Town. Good to hear from you.

BTW, if anybody is going by my house with an empty trailer, please stop for a live load. I'll pay detention time.

Happy to help...too far away. Found you a viable substitute...

Todd is on his way with a U-Haul, bandaids, duct tape and Tylenol.
