Husband is starting truck driver training. will be on the road as soon as March 3rd
I never thought I would be a truckers wife. I was a truckers daughter most of the time I was in school, until a train backed over my dad's truck,wrecking the truck and him. He then got into cars, buying and selling them. That is how I met my husband.
He has been an auto mechanic for years. The auto industry has dried up here and mechanics are getting laid off and there are not any good jobs so here we are and now we have a son who is almost 3 years old. I just hope that the company he says he is going with is a good company and he can get home once in a while.
It has been years since my family has had any dealings with truck driving. When my dad was a driver the thing to do was own your own truck, they said you never wanted to be a company driver. Now what we are hearing is that you want to be a company driver that you really don't want to be an owner operator. When my dad started driving he just went and got his CDL and signed up with a company and went to work.
Now my husband has to do Truck Driving School and then go through training with the company before he can actually get out there and make some real money.
