    I've been a full time driver for just over a mere 2 years. With the newest contract I've got another 2 before top pay. I'm in a northern state and winter is hell. Closest family is half of the country away. I'm only up here for my college girlfriend but looks like this relationship will end. I've already got another 11 guys under me in seniority and last month got my own route. It's a good route not going to lie. Would quitting and moving south away from the cold be worth it? I'm not happy living in this area but I'm afraid I won't find a job that can match pay and benefits elsewhere. Anyone else go through a similar situation?

    If you don't enjoy the job move. Nothing worse than doing something you hate for a living

    If SummerMan is your real name you should change it. Real names aren't allowed on this board.

    I hate the job in the cold and snow. You might just have the winter time blues. Problem is they always come again, and suck more the older you get.

    I enjoy my coworkers and route. Hate location and not being around family.

    I was raised in the cold. All my family retired/ moved to warmer climates and envious of that.

    That's why we get seven weeks vacation after we've been here a while. Visit family

    Stick it out a few years, bank a bunch of money and see what happens.
