    Truckerís Life

    Purpose of this is information is about a well-unknown life of being a Truck Driver. Everyone has a description, which is fat, lazy, and dirty, and the last of the Cowboys in this so-called ď Digital Age.Ē Just remember if you have it a ďTruck brought it.Ē

    Cause and Effect:
    Everyone thinks or has an idea what a Truck Driver is. Iím here to inform you that you think you may know, but you have no idea what it is like. Truckers spend approximately 26 dayís on the road with only 4 dayís off if theyíre lucky. If your home, your not making money. Thatís the way it is, no exceptions. There are perks to be a Professional Driver. You can see the countryside and some places people never even heard of. For example, I have been to place in Wyoming that the population was 15. You can make a lot of money, tons of it.

    Being a Professional Driver if you have a family it is difficult on the home life. Your spouse has to do it all by her or his self. That worse part of being on the road is the four-wheelers. A professional driver has to do fifteen things a once. We half to watch out on all our blind spots the sideís what in front of us and basically do a 360 degree look around the truck when we cant see that much. There are so many laws from each state that are different that we have to remember which is very difficult since the portís think they have all the answers. Itís really sad that they half to use a computer to verify where we have been.

    These are the things I half to deal with every single day when I am out on the road. Itís a rewarding job but most Truckerís donít get the respect they deserve. There are times for example when the Hurricane Katrina travesty happen the Trucker was there most of them volunteering there time to deliver ice to the victims and what type of respect did the Trucker get price gauging from the storeís there. 12 pack of pop is around $3.00 to $5.00. I paid $12.00 for a 12 pack of soda pop.
