Fifty-Two And Displaced From The Auto Industry
(Garden City, Michigan)
Just took an early retirement from a 25 year career as an automotive engineer, in Detroit. Not ready to totally put my feet up, though! Have always loved driving long distances, and have always fantasized about becoming a long haul truck driver, while sitting behind my immobile desk. Now, it looks like I would have the time to pursue the training and potentially add some decent retirement income. But, at the age of 52 (in terrific shape, though), would anybody hire me as a new driver?
Would be very appreciative of any experiences or info anybody may be able to share in relation to starting out as an older driver.
By the way, this is a terrific site! The best on driving that I have found!
