I should have put my boots on before I watched this.... this guy's a steering wheel holder. I'm insulted he calls himself a truck driver. You can run 170k miles a year and be home every weekend. It's a10 hour break not an 8. The d misinformation is appalling.

Bullshit on the good pay. Seven years of driving longhaul dispelled that myth for me. It's not good pay when you are attached to your job 24/7. Even on your breaks and when you are asleep you are responsible for that truck, but you aren't earning a dime for all that responsibility. Only when the wheels are turning.

I did love it at first. I flew through NYC at 70 one day during broad daylight! It was ghost town everywhere I went. I was stuck in my truck for four months. That part really sucked. This my fifth year on the road. I did it for job security, seeing the country and love to drive.

Newsflash - it wasn't a pandemic but instead it was a plandemic and even better it was a dem-panic. Its never been about the vir-us it's always been about the election. They still can't fathom how she lost. The electronic voting machines were rigged for her to win. When you enter COVID into Hebrew and then translate it back into English it is Kobe.

Yeah props to those truck drivers in nyc, ive seen those dudes get out of gas stations, giant parking lots, and tight roads like you wouldn’t believe. But nyc is a navigational nightmare, the signs don’t help, and you have to have to really rely on instinct or your toast.

It was nice for the traffic aspect. I worked around a lot of medical facilities keeping their HVAC going during this. Masking up, getting your temp taken & answering 20 questions. We couldn’t get masks until May, so we relied on the customer to supply them if it was a requirement for them.

During the peak of all this COVID crap..my job was considered "essential" (I delivered car parts,pizza and booze).During the initial stages of this lockdown...a 10 min delivery was a 6 min delivery. I am also a Medical Cannabis patient. MA (my state) alot of the dispensaries here closed. I take my 2010 Mustang from MA to ME...LOWEST SPEED I did when the highways were empty was 70 mph. The highest was over 110. I passed a NH State Trooper doing at least 100mph. Statie didn't even look 2x at me.

I was a trucker back in the '80s-'90s. Saw a lot of death on the road, still gets to me at times. but still, trucking was great life back in the day. If a driver was broke down we would pull over & help him. Best time of all that I can remember, It was Easter weekend. I had a run from Ohio to Ocala, FL. I had to get there the next day. I ran 1100 miles started @ 10am drove until 5:30 am slept 90 mins, then unloaded then off to Miami which was around 300 miles. It was a Friday we had to lay over until Monday. My wife was with me so the weekend in Miami was great! We stayed at the Seminole Truck Stop, bought a cheap Hibachi and other truckers would bring hotdogs & burgers over. it was a party all weekend, one guy was pulling a reefer, took a beef tenderloin off it & we sliced it with a hacksaw into steaks. Great times I just wanted to share some old memories. Our CB Handles were "Blondie & Dagwood" Older folks know who they are. God bless any drivers still on the road and reading this and Remember " Keep the sunny side up and the dark side down".

I blow past scales all the time and have never been stopped. I haul ag and a lot of times we load out of places where there aren't any scales and that's an easy way to end up weighing 100k plus. When we load out of places like that we'll stop at a scale somewhere before our drop and get a weight so they know how much to pay for the weight of the load but that doesn't help us with being legal. I don't do stuff like that if I don't have to but like he said, taking a chance at a ticket is better than a guaranteed ticket.

If you want to make good money trucking get your HAZMAT and or TANKER on your licence. Linked up with a small family business running manufacturing water waste. Stuff that has the tiny metal particulates in the rinse water. Pulled in over $1,400 per WEEK. Route was From Tampa - Atlanta, Atlanta - Detroit, Detroit - Dallas, Dallas - Tampa, Home for a weekend..then repeat for 2 weeks. Was great work, good companies, and great money.
