    I've been driving tractor trailer since 1979 hauled it all but now I'm hauling MSW (Trash) in a 2001 Kenworth W-900 L /18 spd double frame heavy hauler pulling a 100yd walking floor trailer also non hazardous waste water in tanker the work is steady and smelly .Not my dream job but it pays the bills. I do this 5 days a week and have the weekends for family& fun.
    Do a youtube on walking floor trailers and you'll see

    Hello! Well ... I used to be a teacher ... I put in over 27 years teaching History at the high school level. At the completion of my 25th year, I had a severe auto accident (a car croseed the centerline and hit my Harly "head-on"). I managed to walk back into work the start of the next school year, and put 2 years into the job in extreme pain. Between the injuries, the presence of mental illness and domestic violence in my family, I chose to retire and I am now traising my 2 children (5 & 4) by myself ... so I am now a full-time dad (as best as my injuries allow me! Boy, do I long for the relief of a job to go to!

    Amen to that. Glad you are protecting and raising your children though. I was laidoff for 7 months and became a stay at home dad of a 4 month old. Wow can I say I am so glad to be back to work. But I do miss my extra time I got to spend with her.
