These drivers enjoy the challenges and variety of being in different locations and being able to see so many areas of the country. Some drivers prefer familiar locations and enjoy dedicated routes where they do the same runs each day. These drivers prefer more home time and often choose shorter runs. Some drivers pack up their homes and literally live on the road for months at a time. Other drivers have no such interest in that lifestyle.
