Legit or not, thats a free 50 bux.

I have heard of two driver teams hitting the six figure mark and then some. Thats 50 grand a person. I am sure some make more than that though. Just depends how much you stay on the road I guess.

The trucking company figures with 2 drivers that rig wont stop, in return thats more $ for them! and the drivers!!

Id enjoy trucking but I hate driving..... 45 min drive to work 6 days a week is BORING!! but having a big rig to tool around in would be fun. Ive taken the day cab international for some spins around the block

I Loved It.

When I first started, I Loved It, but on my first trip out after my training. I hit a Ford Pinto head on, on LA 1 just North of Powhattan, LA. He was drunk and killed instantly. That didn't stop me from loving the job. When I retired I had in two million miles as a safe driver.
Can he and her make that kind of money. Yes they can, but for everyone that does there are at least ten that are not.
I would try my best to steer anyone away from driving now a day.
