Why not try driving a truck?

You can save money living in your truck so you don't need an apartment. Most trucking companies are throwing money at potential candidates and you can have a pick of jobs.

Criss cross the country for 2 years and reassess your situation.

Seems like for some people, it would be a great way to live but for others it would be hell!

More like if you’re single, frugal, and don’t have an education or career. Also, because you don’t want to stay single forever.

And get used to peeing in a bottle. That's how ridiculous the schedules are. You're either driving or sleeping.

But don't worry about the schedules for long. The self-driving trucks will put the truck drivers out of work in the next decade or so.

I don't have much confidence in Elon Musk in regards to the self-driving technology quite yet.

Its a very unhealthy lifestyle. Trucks will be self piloted soon anyways. No future in that profession

Elon musk does not sell semi trucks. All the big auto companies are working on self drive technology.
