Mr. Mai Tran living in Haltom City (Texas) has just bought a heavy 18-wheeler truck of over 30 tons. Wife and six-year-old son prepare clothes, food and drinks to follow him on a 1,500-mile (2,400 km) journey from Dallas (Texas) to Los Angeles (California).
Except for training trips for beginners, many drivers still bring their families with them when the opportunity arises. All year round, continuously transporting goods, there is no time to stay at home to play with his wife and children.
Mr. Mai Tran calculated the trip and return here earns 6,000 USD (Transportation Management Company pays two USD / mile). Time to go home includes sleeping time, which takes six days. Except for all expenses, he ended up pocketing more than $ 2,000.
