I'm also discovering that Swift's kiosk are usually not working properly or at all. I've got some training stuff I have to do on them and the two here don't work

You can access all of the training through Swift's driver portal. Driver code and last 4 of the SS# gets you in. I haven't used the kiosks in years...

Been having issues from my phone due to flash player no longer being supported but so many sites still use it. Think I got it and then some. The site seems a little confusing to a rookie like me. From the development plan, the top has some courses but in the section below that's says assigned courses it doesn't show any or any completed on that page. The ones list at the top never clear out. My transcript shows what I've done though. I'll get the hang of it in time.

Today started early...ish. I wanted to get up so I could take a nap later in the day and use the restroom before I would be to far from one.

Since I'm still resetting I just hung out and did some Swift University stuff on my phone. I'm realizing that the 12v outlets in this truck don't put out a lot of juice. Not enough to charge or at least hold the charge while on my phone or even if it's just playing music. I went ahead and plugged into the inverter with my fast charger and had it charge while I was doing the Swift University stuff. I'm pretty sure I've got them done.

We had a live load of some Bose somethings on a JIT run to a Costco DC in Maryland.

I got some sleep, surprisingly, since I wasn't sure how I'd sleep in the sleeper of a moving truck and since I had slept last night. Made myself some PB&J. Now I'm just waiting to finish my reset and him finish his drive. Which time nicely with each other.

Nothing to exciting going on. I've pretty much kept my distance and limited my interaction with my mentor down to only what's necessary. Mr. "I'm not a sleeper sleeper" (another thing he repeats) has me concerned that he'll just hang out and micromanage. He has a spot he wants to fuel at, which is fine since the cost is his. Which makes me wish I had a company driver for a mentor. Seeing the differences that an O/O can do compared to what a company driver has to do. Makes me wonder how much of my training it's going to ruin. Oh wells. I'll do what I can to own my training and control what I can.

For now, onward to Maryland.

Until tomorrow.....
