Still a tough job, I have an uncle who's a trucker in Kansas, and it's tought. Well I would imagine it being tough, all day on the road, especially now since I heard that the governmnt regulates how many hours you're allowed to drive in a day.

That really sets you back, I heard in come states like Nevada they govern your speed, and fines are quite large if you exceed a certain speed.
