Daniel’s Take on Being a Truck Driver
What He Enjoys Most About Being a Truck Driver: Traveling to new places and enjoying the scenery every day.
Favorite Route: Texas, for its 75 mph speed limit and not so much traffic! (other than in the cities).
Tips for Balancing Time on Road & Family Life: Be with your family as much as possible while still being able to provide for them.
Advice to a New Truck Driver: Be open to learning as much as you can. Don’t try to be a know-it-all.
Favorite Companion While on the Road: My son. There’s nothing better than riding with Dad! He likes to see different cities and big airports; he’s into airplanes.
What He Enjoys Most About Working for Classic Carriers: Being an Owner Operator at Classic Carriers gives me the opportunity to grow.
