I'm currently applying for a job that requires 90 percent travel time. Its a trainer position that aptly fits my skills. However, this is the first time, when accepted, that I will do a lot of traveling workwise. According to the interviewer, I will be gone between a week to two weeks. They will try to make sure that I get home at least every other weekend. I'm excited about the position but aware that due to the extensive travelling involved it can get stressful if not handled properly. I'm just curious if there are any mylotters out there who travels a lot due to their jobs. Please share some advice and tips on how to be a great road warrior. Wish me luck, folks..

I had a friend who drove trucks for a while, and he was in a similar situation: sometimes home every weekend, sometimes only every other weekend. It wasn't too difficult for him, because he was a single guy who lived alone. But I would imagine that anyone with a family would have a difficult time adjusting to that sort of schedule. In my friend's case, he was able to get online when he would stop driving for the night, so he would chat with his friends that way. If you can take a laptop with wireless access along with you, that would make communication with friends and loved ones a lot easier. Best of luck!

Best of Luck to you in your endeavour! Mine is not a travelling job, regrets I cannot share much experiences with you. But I feel, travelling job, will definitely be very tiring and taxing...you will have to be on your toes all the time, besides facing travelling hazards. Best wishes!
