Rob. Have enjoyed reading your posts. In December 2018 I broke my leg and couldn't work for 9 weeks. During this time I started reading TT and became immersed in the diaries and other posts. Sometime during that time I joined TT. I read all your posts and just realized tonight you are.....ahem.....not 21. Neither am I. Early on you mentioned you went from a six figure income to trucking. I too am currently working a job earning six figures. I want to pull the pin and become a trucker....But I am scared. What helped you to make your decision? What was your thought process? How did you know you were ready and when you were ready? Help me if you can.


What on earth left you with the impression Rob is not 21?

Not sure of his exact age, but he could not run Interstate for Prime if he was not at least 21.

G-Town. I was saying he is older than 21....not Younger. I can see how what I wrote could be looked at either way. I should have been clearer and said I was looking for advice from him because he, as have I, have had successful careers previously.
