Being a trucker takes many qualities to have a great long career. For starters a trucker must have stamina! If you are able to drive the amount of miles a trucker needs to cover in one year to earn a big income. You will need to build up your stamina. You will need to have the ability to sit in a seat for 11 plus hours a day and cover some serious miles. A good trucker can drive 120,000 to 150,000 miles per year, thats an average of 2400 to 2900 miles every week after week. Most good truck drivers do this for 20 to 30 years before retiring with millions of miles as a lifetime total.
Have you also thought of the time away from home it takes to be successful? Truckers on average are away from home two weeks at a time and up tot months. Truckers see their families sometime for a couple of days a month and off they go.
