Hello TTG family!
This is a huge milestone for me.
As a kid, I was always impressed and found it incredible to be able to drive and maneuver big trucks and since then it's what I always wanted to do.
I'm 24 years old and my day has finally come!
I got my license on the 13th of November and I finally found a job, transporting fresh food products on a refrigerated trailer.
I only work during night time so my sleep schedule has been a bit messed up, but that's something I'll eventually get used to.
I'll have to start working out more often because I really don't want to become a fat boy.
So far, I'm absolutely loving this and I just hope everything goes well for the future.
Chase your dreams boys, never give up!

Here are some pictures of the big ass truck I'm driving:



Well, I guess I don't need to play Euro Truck Simulator anymore!

Kick ass man. Congratulations!

As somebody who spends months crossing continents, I've always wondered how it would be to smash it out in a couple of days. What are your regular routes?

Congratulations that's huge.
My friend is currently going for his licence and he's keeps telling me to do mine but I'm in two minds about it.

Thank you, Frog!
Well, I actually don't drive too far away from home, I drive inside Charante-Maritime (French department) and at the end of the day I come home.
This is good for now to start getting some experience and skills but later on I would love to drive long distances and even visit new countries!

Thank you dude!
Well, if trucking is something you enjoy then I say go for it.
The people I met at work are all passionate about it, so I guess this is that type of job that only passionate people do.

Yeah exactly that, I'm still undecided what I want to go 100% invested into that I'm passionate about. Hope it comes around soon though im 24 now

Thanks man.
If it's something you love then definitely go for it, you won't regret it.
I had butterflies in my stomach the first time I hopped on a truck, and now, finally being able to drive these things, it's such a great feeling.
Good luck dude!
