Question 1 of 25

How will you cope with being on the road, away from your family?

"I realize that it's a lot to ask of my family when I am away for days or weeks at a time. One thing that I try to remember is that they are only a phone call away. Before I tuck in for the night, I call my spouse on Facetime, and we get caught up on our days. I have been in this lifestyle for so many years now that we have established a routine which works well for us."
