Propane stove: DOT restriction?

I would suggest that you do a search on youtube for cooking in the truck. I have seen a number of videos that cover it well.

Diving in with PRIME

Well I now through my first week! We managed to get in over 3500 miles. I've already logged about 45 hours behind the wheel. Hope to test next week. Currently sitting in Texas on a 34 hour reset.

Well haven't had a chance to update for a few days, been very busy. It is now day 2 of my psd phase. I was one of the lucky ones to get a trainer on Thursday. So two days of driving 400+ miles a day. I was rather suprised when my instructer had me driving right from the moment we left prime. Lol. But nothing like diving right in. Well we are currently headed to Maryland for our first drop, and have anouther 400 to go. And good luck to you guys just starting out.

Wow, when they say hurry up and wait, they are not kidding. After end of first class at 9:30am, I stood in one line after anouther till 3:45pm. Then it was right over to sims till 7:30pm. What a day, but I'm still here and that's more then a number of other people can say.

Firearms

I'm all for Brett using one "sticky" at the top of the general forum for FAQ. Like:
1. Firearms
2. Drug tests
3. At my age...
4. What company should I start with
ect....
I'm sure you moderators could come up with a much longer list of questions that show up all the time, and the response is always the same. In my opinion this would help people get quick answers and save your moderators a lot of time.

Starting Prime on the 4th

After about a month of waiting, the time is almost here. So I know I have everything on my check list that the company sent me but was wondering if you guys know of anything else I will need. I have:
1. Permit, got this back on the 7th.
2. All my paper work is together.
3. Clothes/bathroom stuff gathered and ready.
4. Journal/pens/highlighters.
5. Chargers for both phone and razor.
6. Arrangements made to pay bills.
Is there is anything else that you think I may need? I currently do not have a laptop or tablet, so I will be dependent on my smart phone for now. I will take a couple books with me, but can you recommend another cheap form of entertainment for my down time? Also is anyone else on here that is going to be there from TT?

I received a call from my recruiter today, they just had a spot open up on the 4th, and guess who got it. smile.gif
So now I just have to get done in 4 days what I thought I had 11 to do. But the one thing I keep hearing is that you must be flexible. Besides when I originally set things in motion, the 4th was my goal start date. So things worked out.
Now where to begin....

At first they told me that I wouldn't be starting till the 25th! I made sure to let my recruiter know that if an earlier spot opened, I would be happy to fill it. Two days later, and I had a spot on the 11th. So yes classes are booked up, and I would start the process ASAP.
