I know I haven't been the easiest person on here to deal with and I've caused a bit of drama and I don't get along with everyone out here, but I appreciate everyone who take time out of there busy days to help me when I needed it. Unfortunately like most of you saw coming a long time ago things didn't work out and trucking and I have parted ways for good this time. I just didn't have what it takes to deal with the massive learning curve that comes with this job and have made enough dumb mistakes to write a book about, I tried as hard as i could, no one can take that away from me and I have alot of financial issues and am still on the hook for school so it's time to find something I'm good at before I loose everything . I wish everyone going in to this industry the best of luck and hope everyone stays safe out on the road and look forward to whatever adventures life has in store for me next.

Best of luck to you Zack!

You will find your niche - just keep focused and always put in your best effort.

Zach, You gave it your best shot and it is not due to not trying. I hope you find the niche you are looking for. It takes a real "man" to admit when something is beyond his grasp. You will be able to achieve success in another field. Good luck and keep us posted.

Dm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

What happened Zach? Not too long ago you posted you were cranking out 600 miles a day and asked how long it would take to get to a million. And going off of the the gps tracker you’re checked in from the Western Express terminal. Did you quit Swift go back to Western and quit again?

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

I wish you well, Z !!! I've got a kiddo (nephew) your age, going to school for Diesel Mechanic training...that's something to look into, jsyk! Pays pretty darn good and DANG in demand .. especially here in Ohio!

Be safe, be well.

That’s why it’s called diesel mechanic school. Keyword school. You don’t have to be mechanically inclined. They train you on how to be one.

Well Kiddo, I'm at a loss...what do you think you are inclined and capable of doing? How old are you? I thought you were almost 30, so that wouldn't affect companies insurance rates...but you do look awful young in your picture :-) That doesn't mean anything either...I have people thinking I'm in my fifties and I will be turning 70 in July!

I hope you do get things figured out and can learn a trade so that you can be a contributing member of society, which is good for mind, body and soul.

Take care!

Laura
