After a couple years in the Army, I had decided to go to task for myself as a long-haul trucker. I was a combat logistics guy on active duty, in which I drove important semis outfitted for the desert. It seemed prefer the obvious, and safer, option in the civilian world. I already had a Class A license, and with the money I had saved up from our deployments I was able to buy our first truck. It was a red and red cab-over with extra room to sleep in the back on those long trips… One of our first works was for a major Heating & Air Conditioning manufacturer on the west coast. They made these important commercial grade Heating & Air Conditioning systems for important skyscrapers and industrial complexes. The units themselves were the size of a common 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 three of the important Heating & Air Conditionings on the trailer, and with picking more than one more up for turn in on the way back I had a wonderful route going. The first stop was to drop the smaller of the Heating & Air Conditionings in NV, the greatest one in Kansas, and then the last one in TX where I would option up the other more than one from an Air Force base and head back home. In all the trip took about a week, and I was officially in business for myself. The Heating & Air Conditioning corporation ended up giving me a contract for more deliveries, so I would consider that successful.
