Book excerpt: In the small town of Hebert, Illinois, a body is found behind the truck stop that disappears twenty-four hours later. Then there’s another disappearance, doubling every night. A trucker arrives at the sheriff’s office with a theory that the sheriff finds hard to believe. The trucker’s theory is that his ex-partner is responsible. When the problem in Hebert is in the stages of being resolved, the sheriff and two young volunteers head for Kalamazoo, Michigan, to meet up with the young trucker, his new partner, and a detective. Kalamazoo is experiencing the same problem as Hebert, only on a much larger scale. Can the mysterious disappearances be stopped? Can the one responsible be found and brought to justice? If these volunteers and the police department fail, what is next?

Download or read book How To Become a Truck Driver written by HowExpert and published by HowExpert. This book was released on 2016-09-23 with total page 55 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Let’s talk about the money, most truck drivers can expect to earn $30,000-$40,000 in their 1st year. I know some drivers who work as Solo drivers and decide to give up their apartments so they can stay in the truck all year long and save money. They still take days off from time to time, and stay with friends, family or rent a hotel for a few days so they can take a break. Once you have 6 months experience you may be able to find a job that pays more money. I’ve seen motivated drivers earning in the $60,000 range in their 1st year. The money is there to earn if you look for it. Too many drivers get complacent and they stay with the same company in the same position making low wages for years and years. Sometimes all you need to do to increase your income is switch positions within the company. If the company you work for doesn’t offer anything that will take you to the next level then find another company that will. I know a Walmart driver who earns $100,000 year and he’s home every night and weekend. Companies pay you in cents per mile (CPM) so the more mileage you drive the more you earn The bottom line is company drivers can make anywhere from $30,000 to around $100,000 per year. Stay away from company lease options, 99% of the time only the company does well with this type of position. They will make their lease program sound perfect, touting how you will be your own boss and make lots of money. Drivers often find themselves making just enough to cover the WEEKLY truck lease payment. If you want to truly be your own boss as a owner operator of your own truck then save up the money to buy a used truck cash or you may be able to find a 3rd party (not company sponsored) lease program. I have seen a couple of decent 3rd party lease programs, these will allow you to contract with any company you want. So if you’re not making enough money with one company then you can easily switch to another. Owner operators can make anywhere from $50,000 - $250,000 per year. About the Expert I have been driving a truck full time for over 4 years at the time of this publishing. I have been a company driver for 3 of those years and an owner/operator for a bit over one. In the 4+ years that I’ve been driving I have spent one year driving most of the lower 48 states. I haven’t made it up to North Carolina, and a few other states in the northeast but all of the others I have. For the last two years I have been truck driving with my team from Los Angeles to the Kansas City area and back. We did that twice a week. After doing that for about a year I was able to get a driving position working nights and being home every day. I did that for almost year. I left there because the company did a pathetic job of maintaining their equipment. I was afraid of getting stopped by law enforcement. So I left them and got my own truck to take care of. Now I am contracted with a carrier to move their freight and it works out a lot better. HowExpert publishes quick 'how to' guides on all topics from A to Z by everyday experts.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Late Truck Driver isn’t about a deceased truck driver or someone who arrives late to pick up or deliver a load. It’s about becoming a truck driver later in life. David Longanecker always dreamed of driving a big rig, but his life took a different path, leading him to enjoy a career as a higher education administrator and in policy analysis. When he retired, however, he chased his dream. In this book, he shares how he made the leap, what it was like prepping for and taking the test to earn his commercial driver’s license, and how he earned real-world experience on the road. He also pays tribute to the beauty of big rigs and the pure joy that comes along with looking at them and driving them. There really is nothing like admiring the beauty of a landscape while sitting in the elevated cab of a big rig tractor. Whether you’ve wondered what it is like to drive a big rig, want to make a career change, or simply crave to know more about truck driving culture, you’ll get an accurate picture of what the life is all about with this book.
