An older gentleman I went to class with had a guitar (similar instrument?). He's brought it with him.

If I was OTR I would definitely have my guitar with me. When I was Fracking I was taking my guitar with me. Are schedule was 2 weeks on 1 week off. But we were also staying in hotels, but if I was OTR, my guitar would be my best friend.

OTR:

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.

Would think about bringing my acoustic if I get out on the road, but I'd be concerned that the extreme summer heat or winter cold would be bad for it if I'm away from the truck for a few hours. Any suggestions for this?

Picked up the guitar when I was 19 & plan on picking it up again once I'm OTR

This would be my concern as well. Just the change of seasons play havoc on the setup; humidity and temperature whacks out the neck angle and intonation. The constant humid/dry - hot/cold over time can't be good for a fine instrument .

My advice would be to leave the Gibson at home and pick up a cheapo axe for the road . That's my plan.

Been wondering about thismyself. I've never left home for any long period of time without my Taylor. But after reading replies here, I might tune my Yamaha back to standard and just take her with me. Would hate to ruin my baby on the road. Let them truckers rock. 10 4.

Once I am finished teaming with my trainer, my axe will definitely be riding along with me. She's my pet and she doesn't even need to take a potty break! I would love to spend some time jammin with anyone who has a mind to do some pickin'.
