Sometimes when things are tough it can do a number on your self-esteem, but don't let that negativity creep in!

Trucking has changed so much since I retired back in 2003. The quality of drivers are not as courteous and not as professional as before.The reason is the Electronic logs and the rate of pay have been reduced. The amount of training required to obtain a CDL has dropped. I would to get back on the road but the body say I’m too old.
I may seek a local dispatcher position in Houston area.

Hey, all! I am working on a project - an app for truckers to connect and share day-to-day work stuff. Worth pursuing? And if yes, what would be some cool features to add?

That's something I always wanted to do, be a truck driver. Amen

This is kind of a tough topic for me. I am a CDL driver and we lost one of our guys today. I got a message that one of our drivers had an accident, they think a heart attack.

He was a great dude and a very good driver and it got me thinking that I should start trying to get more active on the road. A heart attack actually killed my dad and it scares the hell out of me. How can I work out when I am trucking constantly??

My son runs while he's parked. Then goes and reserve a shower
