After a couple years in the Army, I had decided to go to labor for myself as a long-haul trucker… I was a combat logistics girl on active duty, in which I drove massive semis outfitted for the desert. It seemed like the apparent, & safer, option in the civilian world. I already had a Class A license, & with the cash I had saved up from my deployments I was able to buy my first truck. It was a red & red cab-over with extra room to sleep in the back on those long trips, however one of my first tasks was for a major Heating, Ventilation, & A/C manufacturer on the west coast. They made these big commercial grade Heating, Ventilation, & A/C systems for massive skyscrapers & industrial complexes. The units themselves were the size of a respected sedan, so I hauled them on a flat trailer. They had to be strapped down with heavy tie downs, though they were so heavy I doubt they would move. I could get more than 2 of the massive Heating, Ventilation, & A/Cs on the trailer, & with picking 2 more up for turn in on the way back I had a great route going. The first stop was to drop the smaller of the Heating, Ventilation, & A/Cs in NV, the largest a single in KS, & then the last a single in TX where I would option up the other 2 from an Air Force base & head back home. In all the trip took about a week, & I was respectfully in supplier for myself. The Heating, Ventilation, & A/C supplier ended up giving myself and others a contract for more deliveries, so I would consider that successful.
