He asked me to go OTR with him....
(Grand Rapids MI)
Looking for advice 😊
So my husband and I have been married less than a year He's been a truck driver for 15 years or so Most recently he had an opportunity for a local job but unfortunately (as goes the trucking industry) instead of being a local job it became an over the road job.
So he was doing over the road for a local pay so we've decided to go with a long haul company and go over the road. He wants me with him.
We have no young children. I have a good job but spend most of my time alone as he's rarely home (I have 18 year old daughter he has 2 daughters we see biweekly). Has anyone done this long haul with their trucker?
He said after 6 months if I don't like it we will do something different. So I would have to quit my job. How do you all feel about this?
Financially we would be fine with the single income but...how do I cook and keep us healthy?
How do you handle being away from family for weeks at a time?
(My sister and mother are freaking out) Boredom? Showering in truck stops?
Any advice would be appreciated ladies! TIA!
