  • You might. he should be able to answer that for you - where does he spend most of his time? Have him map out where his last 6 weeks were spent driving and maybe if there is something in the middle, you could move there and he would pass through more often. When my dh drove truck, we did live where his headquarters was and this is where he would drop the load and get a new one.

  • i would say check out and see if he is there most of time but be careful lately some of the trucking industry has shut down around here we had to shut our doors last year. i was going to move a few years ago to Fargo to be close to where he worked but he was terminated and got a job closer to home. I got to see him every weekend and sometimes through the week.

  • You might but then again you might now. It all depends on the company he works for. Big Name companies, most likey no... Your best bet is to wait until hes got three years of driving under his belt & have him look for a smaller company to work for. I got lucky & my hubby wasn't gone for that long of a time.. But Most truckers are, big named company's do that.

    What company does he drive for. I can talk to my hubby...
