Being New To the Game

Hey David,

Don't know if you are a family man or not. But check into Landstar, they have over-the-road owner operators as well as company drivers. Don't know if they are hiring but they were recommended to my husband by the former vice president. We have only been with them for 4 months, i can't say we have made any money but then again we are just starting and we are buying our own truck, so in 2 months the truck was in the shop 3 times, we that is where our money has gone. Just give them a look on line at www.landstar.com "Just a note if you are a family man really try to get something local, having a husband is really hard, not only on your wife but your kids also. They will continue to grow-up even though you are not there. Believe me. Just think it over and talk to your wife in depth. Wishing you and yours the best of luck.

David is looking.

Hey David, this is the fun part, trying to find a company (that will hire you). Where is Armona? Never mind, just noticed it is next to Hanford. Start with Knight Transportation, they have a terminal in Tulare right off 99. Next, try May Trucking, Salem, Or., TWT, Spokane, Wa., Hendrickson, Sacramento, Ca. These are suggestions only, and they run I-5/99 a lot, which is good if you want to get home easily. Put on your best face when applying and observe other companies that run up and down the big road in your area. Jimmy
