i basically don't fit in any corporate setting. it's been 20 years. the data is in.

i'm actually good at academia, but the pay sucks.

why shouldn't i say fuck it, get a CDL, buy a rig, get an agent, and just do over the road trucking? my wife is fine with it.

Do you know anything about the actual lot lizard scene? Is it all strung-out skanks or are there actually legit young trafficked hotties out there servicing truckers, as the media would have us believe?

Not saying don't do it, but it seems like you would be consigning yourself to spending most of your waking hours in a little metal box. Would you be able to get enough exercise?

I've been thinking about doing exactly this for a couple years now. Not that I can leave biglaw anytime soon, but once the kids are out of the house in 5 years. I do think you have to drive for someone for a couple years before you can get your own authority to be an owner-operator. Do you listen to Road Dog Trucking on SiriusXM? You can learn a lot about the business from that channel.

55 hours a week max as an OTRmo, computer logs, mandatory down time.

Could be worse.

You’ll need real driving experience before you get hired to someplace good. No need to owner-operate, too much demand for drivers, you’d do fine as an employee.

it's really the main occupation of the men on the mainland. we have quite literally over a dozen drivers in the family. most are owner operators and they all did well.

my dad made a ton more money as an owner operator compared to being a company driver.

There is a lot to learn on this. My grandfather was meticulous with his rig, even actually wore the lug nuts out. He was constantly fucking with it.

Different situation now with the bidding happening for drivers. Make the money and get the experience then get your own rig.

My grandfather did long haul for 30+ years. Always owned his own rig. He even got my grandmother a cdl and had her do easy stretches. Retired pretty well off.

I served with a guy who got his CDL in the service and eventually bought his own rig. He's done very well since then and has 6 guys working for him doing long-haul trucking. He still spends about 6+ months a year away from home, but mostly because he is addicted to the trucker lifestyle. Definitely not good on the home life as he's been divorced 2x.

Guy just likes being on the road I guess. He was always one of those guys that never really put down roots anywhere.
