Trucker get paid to travel. Although many drivers will be quick to say you travel the country but you don't see much of it. The reality is that it depends on the trucking company you are at, how much time free time you will have. Even though, it is true, you are at work not on vacation. Many times you don't have time to stop. However, plenty of times wyou will.
Another big determining factor on whether you can spend time at a place or not is your style of driving. If you are someone who waits until the last minute to leave. You will never have time to chill. If you are someone who drives as I recommend which is leave early as possible and get down the road no matter how much time you have to get there, you might run across a place that you want to chill at.
The more proactive approach though, is to get a guide that will tell you the interesting places to visit in each state and simply plan in the advance the places you might want to visit.
I didn't do all of that. I was just as interesting to me to simply get down the road and when I came to a place I wanted to spend some time, I had time to do it. I am easy to please though, small towns in the middle of nowhere are as interesting to me as a big city. Especially when I see people there from a part of the world that puzzles me. Then I ask townspeople how it happened and I discover things that I was supposed to learn about in the history books.
So, again, it is what you make it. Plus how realistic you are. Obviously you are working and can't just chill at will anywhere at any time. But yes, you are getting paid to travel the country and you can see and visit more places than you could ever afford the time and money to visit at a regular job.
You might see places on the news, documentaries or on in history books like the Grand Canyon. Our perceptions of places untraveled can't touch the experience of seeing it for yourself. You will be amazed at the Grand Canyon. You will be surprised also at the beauty of places that you never heard of.
It's hard to explain really. You will travel across a state several times then go down a highway or back road on a single trip through that same state and be blown away by what you see.
When these thing happen you began to realize how educational traveling is. I believe it expands the mind and forces you to think on another level. (Kind of like learning a programming language) Get paid to travel while you expand your mind. What other jobs provides that type of benefit.Get Paid To Travel
