    I retired the first time from Edmond Okla. public schools, I delivered all their USDA, and purchased foods. 2003 was my 18th and final year to drive. Even though I have a lot of drivin stories, I dont miss it one bit.

    Drove tractor trailer for 26 yrs. Started driving for Halliburton in Hays Kansas 1979 hauling acid tankers. My last job ended in 2004 when i got busted up by a falling loading dock, which permanently ended my driving career.

    I never drove one but my son in law received his award this past spring for racking up 2 million accident free miles. This is his rig, he hauls plastic pellets from where I retired to all over the USA and Canada.

    I have been thinking about your question and what I would recommend is to figure out what you what out of the job ie is hometime important do you want to haul long distance or stay close flatbed are good cause normally a forklift unloads and loads you but you have to tarp it they are about 70lbs per and some companys say tarp everything so you see to answer that you need to see what you want and expect then what you will settle for but yes I love to drive so I enjoy it
