The Truckin’ Chronicles

If you look up at the top right hand side of the blog, you’ll notice a new feature called “Truckin’ Chronicles”. I’ll attempt to keep a weekly update on our trucking life here as we drive on our nations highways picking up loads here and dropping them there. Please feel free to comment, especially if there is something particular you’d like to hear more about.

You may also notice another tab called “Eicher Ramblings”. This is our old blog started years ago and was our own personal platform to air things important to us. It’s pretty much not active anymore but who knows! Feel free to wander around in this dusty collection.

As always, we love our blog readers and thank you for joining us in our journey.

  1. Hi! My husband is starting his cdl training early next year. We have 2 kids, 3 and 1 years old. We’re excited for this new adventure but nervous of the time spent away. Any advice or suggestions ? Thanks! Love your blog, got many more to read! 🙂

    1. Thanks for your kind words. I’m happy to answer any other questions you might have too so feel free to write anytime.

      Being nervous of time away from each other is a good thing. Keeping the connection going between you both will be important and keeping him involved in your home-life. You’ll take over at home in more ways then you know. You’d do well to connect with other mates of solo drivers and see how they do it. With the electronics available nowadays Skype and such, you can keep your husbands face in front of your children so they don’t forget daddy’s still an integral part of the household and family. You’ll have to pay a price and try harder then you ever have. If you know this going in it will make it easier to adapt. Perhaps once he’s paid his “training” dues (approximately 1-2 years on the road) he can find a local job that pays well and will keep him home at night or at least more often. Do well.
