So I found a job I can do for the next 5 years.
It's not the best job, but it pays 100,000 a year and I can live pretty much any where (2 hours away from a major city).
What city in the US should I live?
Off the top of my head, I was thinking Indiana, Las Vegas, coastal Washington, Florida or Knoxville and Stockton.
Mostly due to taxes.
4 weeks on 1 week off, so I can travel a little bit, but can't start a second business.
Hope you like people in witness protection, at least Ohio has more going for it
No lol, being stuck in vegas is hell water issues are the least of their concerns right now.
Enjoy being poor on 100k
Meh doable just not sure what you care about weather
Cheap housing just make sure you have a good backup internet plan
>Mostly due to taxes.
Oklahoma city or Columbus OH, keep in mind taxes are important but so is being able to actually bide your time without being bored shitless. Paying slightly more taxes to but with the benefit to have a social circle or access to good quickly goes a long way. 100k for 5years would easily buy a house in the places that you could flip later on for a return.
Hey that's what I do. I make 140k per year, 150 when I have a student
How the hell do you make 140k doing that?
Depends on your permit and routes and flexibility. I know some people who do that, as they are passport holders and clean background can easily take high priority stuff across borders and work specific contracts.
Truckers can make bank depending the sector
I have been trucking for a year with all endorsements and a clean background...
The highest I have heard is 120k a year and that was local union commuting and working 7 days a week
It's pay per mile, and I have the highest mileage route ever heard of. $0.72 per mile 3750 miles per week. It's trans, so I live in a small space with another dude 6 days a week. The truck does 7500 miles per week. It's $0.82 per mile when I have a student. I got lucky
.70 is standard for union mile or hazmat doubles/triples LTL.
You are only allowed to drive 3750 miles in an 8 day period, so you would be averaging 62.5 miles per away even with doing illegal yard moves; and you have to fuel/stop signs/red lights; it's never 100% highway...
Calling BS; show pay stubs.
I don't care what you think is standard, .72 is what fedex contractors pay these days. I've never heard of the 3750 mi/8 day rule. Actually yeah it is 99.9% highway, all interstate I70 KC/Dayton so approx 1250 round trip 6 times/week. It's maxed out so each driver uses all of their 11 hour drive clock and most of their 70 hr on duty/wk clock every week. But yeah thanks for calling bs, it's always nice to shut anons down. Pic rel is Friday's check for one week, memo at the bottom is truck miles
So let's have this straight. You're arguing about who gets to live in a tiny space with another dude for weeks at a time.
Shit son sounds awful, decent money but the fuck is the point in doing that.
Your health must be awful, do you have family? What's the go with the lott lizards
Actually getting away from toxic people and drive-throughs I'm the healthiest I've been in a while, picrel is my typical meal. Yeah it's terrible if you have kids. But I don't have to think about shit or deal with people at all. Only see my codriver for an hour at shift change. I watch unlimited youtube/tv. I spent a while learning Russian while driving. Now I'm getting into futures and I have the ability to watch charts/analysis/study/trade 12 hours a day if I want. At this rate I won't be in the truck much longer. No chance of having the freedom to learn a skill like that working a normal job and dealing with constant bullshit at home. For blue-collar, it's the patrician's choice
I recommend west of the Mississippi, anything east is going to have a shit ton of traffic
There are almost zero people on the Washington coast. The Olympic peninsula is 98% native American land and national forests. You could live on the Oregon coast but it's depressing as fuck and awful weather
