Hi Guys,To update this thread; We have about exhausted our research save for a couple of burning questions with regards to insurance and cell phone coverage areas etc etc... But It would seem that my wife and I have a planned intro date in mind for our journey. Before we can reveal that date, we have to go to the Expo and get a feel for where the industry is at. We want to talk to drivers and owners alike during the two-day event, in hopes to set the wheels in motion.
Currently we have plans in place to keep healthy while on the road, as some of you know about the issues I ran into back in 2017 (when I ventured solo into OTR). We also have a plan to be 100% debt free by our planned entry date. Our sights are set on FedEx Custom Critical at the moment for a number of reasons, as CC has some services that we find exciting to work with (i.e. White Glove; Refer etc).
Recently we received our passports (we opted out of the cards, and now wish we hadn't), and we are going to start studying for our Hazmat (tanker endorsement for Beth). Once we have the Hazmat, we will apply for our Twic cards. Alabama does not have an Enhanced Drivers License, but rather a "Star I.D." Applying for this feature will put a "Star Upon Thars" drivers license, which is supposed to ease traveling on all domestic flights... we are not sure if we will get the Star I.D. yet on our licenses when we go for the Hazmat.
So yeah, we have never been more focused... Hope to see you at the Expo in a couple weeks!
