Thinking of tramping

I’m thinking of doing tramping work , I just like the idea of it all , my two kids have grown up now and doing there own thing and I think my relationship would improve if less time is spent together if that makes sense .
The only thing that concerns me is all the class 2 tramping work is down south , but I don’t mind travelling to a base yard once a week from Edinburgh.
What kind of work , pay.and conditions can I expect ?, and what do employers think of drivers travelling to work?.
And if you know of any companies looking for class 2 trampers could you let me know , many thanks …
