I really felt there was a need for a site dedicated to truckers where nearly every question could be answered and resources are consolidated into one site. I have been married to my highschool sweethart for 26 years and we have 4 grown children. My main interest outside of work and family are photography, you can see some of my work at ShalamarImages(dot)com I've been driving Class A vehicles for approximately 20 years and have a fairly broad knowledge of the industry. I currently work for Food Services of America as driver associate. Prior to my current employer my wife and I ran a Dump Trucking business for 5 years. In my earlier years I drove large trucks for the U.S. Army. I have experience in many aspects of trucking including but not limited to setting up a small business, incorporating, managing the books, taxes, dealing with accidents whether your own or an employee's. Also have knowledge of workers comp, fuel and mileage reports, D.V.C.R, hours of service regulations and more.."
