I'm just wondering. I completed my education and chose a path that doesn't involve large quantities of biscuits and gravy or uppers/ speed so I haven't had much to do with truckers.

Well Jethro when you pull out of your twin sister Jethrene,grad-gee-ate the third grade and register for the draft you might complete your education. So when the president invites you to work(drive a truck) for Haliburton in the Middle East you'll become that double knot spy and brain surgeon you wish to play on tv. Don't forget the extra rope you'll need for a belt because you're so smart you might wish to be hung.

Where is Maryville Tn near Memphis? I think it's much harder for most 'blacks' to drive OTR Simply because most of us aren't use too traveling vs most whites are use too living in different states and traveling most of their lives....You take the average Black person who has never been out of the state where he lives, it's much harder to take a job like OTR trucking........There are more Whites doing OTR Trucking because Whites are use too traveling anyway.

I Am a black trucker. I am a owner/operator. I have driven over the road since 1999.I grew up around and wanted to be a trucker all my life.It all I have done my adult life. I joined the army after high school and drive in the army.I operate coast to coast. I leased my truck back to a major owner/operator trucking company out of Florida. FAQ. Do I do take load from my house and take one right back. No I operate all 48 states.I run anything that fits in my 53' dry van trailer anywhere as long the price is right.
Do you do a load and take time off? No the whole idea is keep the truck moving and making money. Try to pick a reload close to where you unload and keep the truck moving.
Where do you sleep? In my truck,most over the road have sleepers berth.
Where do you park to sleep? Truckstop mostly,just pulling over and parking is illegal in most states.
How long can you drive 11hr a day,70hr in 8days but you have log loading/unloading,fueling and other driver responsibility you 14hr a day to complete everything.
And last have you driven on the ice roads? No
