    I load and unload them. Takes some getting used to, but like everything else, it becomes second nature after a while. Took me some extra time, because I also have a fear of heights. I swore I was gonna quit every single day for the first couple years. Eventually, I realized I'd already taken a liking to it.

    If you like what you do for money it’s easier to get up and go do it for 8-12 hrs

    I couldn't agree more. We do mostly 12's, and we pull a lot of mandatory Saturdays, so we often get close to the 70 hour-per-week limit for truck drivers. Toyota takes very good care of us, though. No complaints.

    Very true, but it pays quite handsomely and the benefits are almost ridiculous. Plus, it surely beats the hell outa running over-the-road. I've done my fair share of that. I enjoy sleeping in my own bed each night and having my weekends off (most of the time).

    That sounds really important.
    Either that or they gave you a fancy title and make you take out some really funky trash.

    Thanks! After a while...a job is just a job. Im basically a technician when it comes down to it...but it gets me closer to flyfishing, mountains, and an excuse to put some more work into the truck.
