I'm Michael Catarevas, editor of American Trucker magazine. Brett allows me to use some content from here with proper crediting. I'm trying to get in touch with Rob T. about his railroad story. If anyone has contact info, or if Rob sees this, please contact me at micatarevas@gmail.com. Thanks all.

Michael there are many great stories from our members here. A couple that you may want to look at are a story about an accident that Persian Conversion had titled Life, death and resurrection of my trucking career unfortunately he doesnt come around anymore though.

We also have a member named MillionMiler24 that literally was homeless sleeping in a wooded area in Florida. Through his hard work he was able to successfully complete schooling for CRST and has since become a trainer for them. If you or anybody else is interested in hearing more here is his CRST training diary . I cant find the thread he discussed his living situation but this is from his profile

Became homeless in 2016 and looking to get back into trucking to get myself out of this situation. I figured this site is by far the best route to get myself out of this situation and back into making some good money so I can actually figure out what I want to do with my life. As of June 9th 2017, I have been accepted to restart my CDL training with CRST Expedited Trucking out of what is now going to be my new hometown of Cedar Rapids, IA (at least for BARE MINIMUM 1 year). As of June 30th, 2017 I have now REACQUIRED my Class A Iowa CDL through NADTA (North American Driver Training Academy) and CRST. Also as of 01/04/2018, I have now been approved through CRST's Safety Department to become a Lead Driver which is our version of a trainer. I have now as of 04:00PM CST on January 12, 2018 been officially certified as a Lead Driver. I thank everyone here at this site for their support that they have given me to restart my journey. I have prayed to God and he has answered my prayers.
