Facebook group?

OMG, yes, I've seen Asian Mai a few times now. Pure gold!

Wow! Thank you all for the advice. I was starting to be a bit horrified by what I was seeing and had a hunch I might get somewhere if I asked the other women in the forum!

Yep, Ms. Laura is right. CDLlife is an awesome, interactive app.

Another Y/T'er to follow is : The Asian Mai Show.

And a personal friend of mine, who does a lot of 'live' Y/T videos, totally interactive chats: ScottieD67 .

Yeah, stay away from "Twisted Truckers" on Fb, and the likes, LoL!!

Anxiety driving through large cities

I'm still in trucking school, so I don't have the same experience as you, but I have been a bus driver for many, many years, so I feel like I can offer a bit of advice. You need nerves of steel. Don't have that? Don't worry, you will soon enough. It's this weird game where you sort of always have to keep in the back of your mind that you're doing something so serious that you could kill people if you screw up, yet NOT let that thought take over. Instead, when I'm driving, I'm mainly just intensely focused on the job at hand. I sort of distance myself from the risk, and do it like I'm playing a video game, because, when you're in a situation where the driving is intense, difficult, or scary, you have to just focus on what needs to be done, and (mostly) block out all that other stuff. Later, I might think "well, that was crazy," but in the moment, I'm just focused on doing it. Another thing is to let go of the little mishaps. If you have a near miss, don't dwell on it; just keep doing the best you can do. Because, if something goes wrong, your emotional reaction to it can make you lose focus, and that can cause more problems. If you make a mistake, you can think about what happened later, and strategize about how you might do better in the future. But, if you let it get to you in the moment, you'll just keep making more mistakes. Just concentrate on what you're doing, and just keep driving. Over the years, I have found that "just keep driving" is the answer to most problems in life.

Newbie tanker driver!

Why tanker? Because it seems like it would be particularly challenging. :) I have a Class B CDL that I've had since I was barely old enough. I got laid off from my corporate office job and thought I'd stick to driving since I've always loved it, and a Class A would give me more options. Some of the buses I drive are 60' long, and they bend in the middle, so I figured tractor-trailer wouldn't be a huge leap for me. I'm in school now. Glad to meet you all.

Facebook group?

Can anyone recommend a good trucking-related FB group to join/follow? I’ll try to keep my expectations realistic, but it would be cool if it were maybe 75% trucking-related, and only 25% the sexual humor of 12 yr old boys.

Newbie tanker driver!

So how did it go? I am also considering Schneider tanker. It will be iffy for me to pass their pre-work screen though. It looks like I’d have no trouble physically doing the actual job, and even their test is pretty easy for me (I simulated it at the gym), but I’m not in good shape, and my heart rate always goes too high. I’ll just keep going to the gym and see if it improves.

Hi, ladies! And gents! I am a newbie in the trucking industry! I am currently a new hire for Schneider and will be hauling liquid goods. (tanker). Anyone have some good advice or tips!?
