I am tired of the PackRat bashing. He is a valuable member of this forum, and I would hate to see him no longer posting because of the humor levied at his expense.

Ryan, I see what you did there and it’s very clever. Thank you for the good laugh. Personally, I’m hoping PackRat will post a comment on this thread. I would expect his response will be very entertaining. And happy holidays to you, young man!

I know that you are a good sport and would appreciate a laugh for the sake of good-natured humor.

May you and yours have a continuously merry Christmas season.

That is awesome. Maybe you can send the doll in to work, so you can stay home for Xmas

Planning to apply at Roehl in March and get my career started as a Midwest regional fleet driver. Working from home the better part of the last 10 years, it’s going to be a huge adjustment physically not seeing my family 4 to 5 days a week which is a much less strain than OTR driving. For $38, I bought this doll for my 10-year-old daughter in case she misses me. I am also confident my wife will occasionally use it as a voodoo doll as well. 🤠

If you have children at home, it may be a nice thing to help them cope with daddy or mama is away 👍




Regional Route

Usually refers to a driver hauling freight within one particular region of the country. You might be in the "Southeast Regional Division" or "Midwest Regional". Regional route drivers often get home on the weekends which is one of the main appeals for this type of route.


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.
