It was a good move for sure, for several reasons. It got me back into decent physical shape. It literally took 3 months for my body to quit hurting. They estimate that we walk about 8-10 miles each day. A lot of people think that sitting in a chair for a living is a good occupation, horrible for you health though. The other benefits of the job are insurance, steady work, great pay, etc. Although I do miss being able to take time off when I want to. The experience that I gained by designing with TurboCAD is still very valuable to me as I still make a few bucks here and there doing maintenance on drawings that I did in the past. I actually have what I believe to be a patent-able idea that I will be using TC to design. I would not have had the resources to do what I am designing without the combined experience of drafting and the freight business. A position that I believe, God, or fate, has put me into. Everything happens for a reason. Certain doors closed for me, but had they not, I wouldn't have what I have now. It's all very hard to see until you get through it. Oh, and I was 42 when I made the decision to start driving, I am 47 now. Although there are a lot of drivers who don't get much physical activity, I would never want that kind of a driving job.
