There is money to be made in the Nevada trucking industry, and it doesn't mean you need to pull into Vegas and double-down with your rig as collateral! Nevada is growing, and it's growing fast. Two new professional sports teams and likely more on the way are one sign of burgeoning economy, and with legal gambling, this state has long been a tourist haven. In fact, a lot of the growth is probably based on the number of tourists who can't find bus fare home after a night on the town! And you likely won't be surprised that the state's top three exports relate directly to the gambling industry — gold, slot machine-type devices, and the circuits that help keep slot machines honest! Imagine the prestige you'll feel hauling a load of gold to... well to wherever gold is hauled! And if crowded cities aren't for you, Nevada offer the best of both worlds — a desert containing cities in the south and mountains, trout fishing, and all the space you might want in the north. If you like what Nevada has to offer, just know it is not a pocketful of tokens or poker chips!
