I stayed so long...

... that I would experience buyout after buyout. My whole trucking career has been with one trucking company that has just changed names four times.

I like what I drive.

I've dispatched before, so dealing with dispatchers is never an issue.


I guess I don't fit the criteria here.


One thing I have going for me that a lot of guys don't is that I actually like trucks. Real trucks. I've been driving Peterbilts my whole life.

No Volvos, Cascadias, Centuries, Prostars, only Classic extended hoods. That, to me, makes all the difference in the world. A real truck with a real motor and lots of chrome and polished aluminum.

I couldn't work for a company with plastic trucks and automatic transmissions. I have yet to deal with an ELD, and I may never have to.

I don't run a DPF of DEF...


As long as it stays "old school" and I still get my paycheck every week, I'll be alright.
