    Socializing at a local bar is good for you

    I live in Las Vegas, so we don't have a "Cheers" in our neighborhood. But I wish we did. Sam Malone was cute......and it was better for our mental health. We need time to "wind down" after work. Local pubs good for our mental health

    How hard is it to get into local truck driving vs OTR?

    Noob question, but how hard is it to find local truck driving jobs? I'm thinking about getting my CDL but the lifestyle of an OTR driver living on the road doesn't really appeal to me. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
