Happy Halloween, everyone!!!

T-Minus 5 days to the first day of Orientation and CDL training at Roehl! This weekend is going to be crazy. Army Reserve Combat Medic drill at Fort McCoy - Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Then drive straight from there to check into the hotel in Marshfield for Roehl training beginning Monday morning. Whew!

Good luck out there! Remember to keep your eyes on the prize. The first few days learning how to drive a truck is going to be extremely frustrating and nerve racking, we've all been there. Remember to take a deep breath and relax; keep reminding yourself why you're doing this, why you need this.

You got a great family of fellow drivers to pick you up and cheer you on when the times get tough, and they will. This isn't an easy career/lifestyle especially when time away from loved ones is involved.

Don't be a stranger, keep us posted!

Roehl is a great company. I checked them out too, but unfortunately where I live, I was informed they only do slip seating which was a no-go for me. They do have fantastic home time options and in most of the country don't slip seat.
