Another great article from Becky Prestwich that really shows how erratic scheduling can be on the road. You lay out the bets plans you can come up with and before you know it they're shot! 
 
If you're used to have a job that's fairly routine where things are fairly steady from day to day, trucking is going to be quite a shock. As Becky Prestwich shows here, very rarely do things work out as planned. You really have to roll with the changes from moment to moment and do what it takes to get the job done.

I don't agree that the reward of trucking is worth too many of the hardships.
For example, after one year of being back on the road after a year long hiatus, I am overweight and unhealthy again.
Over the past year I rarely saw my children and wife, and they became ill behaved with me gone so much.
I have now sold my truck and am recovering health wise. I shall never look back.

Becky and her husband Dee have been working through the everyday challenges of life on the road including rough weather, tight schedules, logbook challenges, and detention at customers. Folks, there's nothing easy about trucking...as you'll see...

A great new article by Becky Prestwich! 
 
Becky Prestwich has been travelling with her husband Dee for about a month now and they're getting the hang of working and living together. It takes time to establish a routine and learn how to make life on the road both productive and enjoyable.

"Old School", one of our forum moderators, has been documenting his day to day life on the road as a rookie flatbed driver. If you're wondering what it's like pulling flatbed his stories, pictures, and advice are priceless! Have a read through it and ask him anything you like.

Trucking isn't suited to everyone. In fact, it isn't suitable for most people. Even those who are cut out for it will tell you there's nothing easy about it. So how do you know if trucking is right for you? Have a look....
 
We've all pondered becoming a truck driver at some point. But what qualities does it take to succeed out there? What is life on the road really like? Let's take a look at trucking and see if it's a career that might suit you well.

Another great article by our newest author Becky Prestwich who is on the road with her husband.
 
Life on the road is so busy that by the end of the day you often feel like you've been at it for a week. The challenges keep coming, the long days never end. But at times there are people you meet and moments in each day that seem to make it all worth it.

So you think working hard and being on time will get you the miles you want and the fair treatment you deserve? Well partly. But there's more to it than that. If you can't get along with your office personnel, no matter how good of a driver you are your life is going to be miserable.
 
Just as important as your driving skills is your ability to get along with the office personnel. Because in the end, your happiness and well-being out there is going to rely heavily upon the people who support you. Without them on your side you're going to be miserable I promise. This is one area of trucking that new drivers often fail to understand and it lands them in a world of hurt.

That is very true, you have to get along with the people that you spell with or it won't work.

I read my manual first, then applied to your app, then im not settling on the 80% I keep going untill I make 100% over and over. Ty for this app im only nervous to talk out the pre trip so ive been YouTube ing that exam as well as researching, your sites and others. I give Trucking Truth cdl exams 30 stars.:) Sincerely, Trucket TeeJay aka Beautiful Truckets on fb.

Keep a great attitude, have fun, and remain confident - you're going to learn how to back up a truck! But honestly - you're going to look silly in the process. But don't sweat it! We all took our turn being the clown.
 
There are few things more awkward and embarrassing than learning how to back up a truck. Believe me, we've all looked like clowns! But have fun with it and stay confident - you're going to get it! Here's a fun look at the process to keep you from stressing.
