That's awesome!

looking back, did time fly or drag durring 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.

New gigs goin great i dont work more than 12 hours usually less due to absolutely no traffic the hours im working and it looks like im gonna make even more than i thought my paychecks will almost not vary other than possibly go up a tad bit depending on tarping so i should gross 88-90k and sleep in my own bed at night as well as every weekend off i believe ive found my ideal position. Thanks to all here for keeping me sane throughout my journey so far even though you wouldnt know it cause i learned by reading about others in my same situation
