Life’s a funny thing. After weeks of research and taking sample training and tests to prep for a career in driving a truck I get a phone call from an old friend. “Hey! What’s going on in your world?” My old friend asked. Told him all about how I was tired of catching fish out of the river in my back yard and was ready to drive the country! That’s when he fessed up. We worked together for years with a company that does borehole investigation for mining and environmental work. He had been promoted and was calling me to see if I was interested in coming back to fill a slot. He didn’t exactly lay a horses head in my bed, but made a sweet enough offer that, after a week of internal debate, I gladly said yes. So instead of running the roads and securing loads I’ll be running the roads and inserting probes, into the ground I mean.

So I wanted to say thank you to TT and all the awesome people here. In all the searching when I started this journey I never saw a more professional or helpful outlet to get new drivers headed in the right direction. You’re all a very kind and thoughtful bunch. If somewhere down the road things don’t work out I’ll know exactly where to head. Safe travels to all.

Rob, AKA by my old company and friend: Robzilla 😂 Guess I’ll keep that if I ever get back to trucking.
