Any truck Drivers here?

Well after 30 yrs of wondering aimlessly around the world on airplanes I am thinking of calling it quits.
I still have the wander lust so I am thinking about driving a big rig>
I have had a class A since I retired in 03 and have only driven school bus with it.
From the forums on trucking I see a lot of good and bad things about it.
I am looking at Prime as a dual driver with the wife.
This for good or bad would allow me to see my lovely bride for more then 10 days at a time and maybe even make to EMR again.
I have always loved driving big equipment after growing up on a farm.
I have limited experience in a Big rig ,however you have not lived until you drove one on Okinawa and had to deal with the narrow *** roads and having to back it onto the ferry.
Anyone got any pointers etc?

A veteran is someone who, at one point in his life wrote a blank check Made payable to 'The United States of America ' for an amount of 'up to and including my life.' That is Honor, and there are way too many people in This country who no longer understand it.'

Bottom line is we never were angels...didn't try to
be. We were not related by blood, but we were brothers nevertheless...not in some sort of Hollywood way, but in a real life "no ****" kinda way.
