You've been sitting behind the wheel for a few weeks, and you've seen the country. What you're looking for now is a lot of space to spread out and relax. If this sounds like you, several states in the west central and northwest regions of the U.S. may be the perfect place for you! And if you like driving with limited traffic, jobs in the regions are ready and waiting. Consider placing Montana, the Dakotas, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Nevada, and Utah on your truck driving home base wish list. Wide open spaces abound with low population densities and lots of ranchland. And if you're worried about finding a job, there is high demand for truck drivers through each state, most of which have some of the lowest unemployment numbers in the U.S. But if all that wide open space gives you an itch to move, you'll also find interstates with the highest speed limits in the country. Get out there, open up the throttle, and get some diesel pumping through your truck’s veins (all while adhering to appropriate safe driving methods, of course). Oklahoma is another state where the only thing slower than the speed limits and wind is the pace of life. While you’re at it, hook onto a trailer full of wind energy, and see if you can reach your destination before it spoils!
