Hometime for team drivers

To pay my school back: Required team driving with a total of 240.000 miles together. Might be between 12 and 16 month? Need explanation how hometime works. Not specific the duration, more like how to handle when drivers have a huge distance between there homes. Don't know how to explain better. I know for each week longer out: 1 more day @ home. This is theory, but in practice? Any statement is highly appreciated. DF confused.gif

Celadon Driving School. IN

Good morning from NM. Instead continue with posting about my NEW career... I was forced to move out from my mobile home unexpected. My landlord said first I may stay til I am back on track and start earning money. Long story short: I have a lot of additional stress during moving and it holds up my studies for High Road Test. But I keep going and don't give up. Unfortunately I have no family or friends to get moral support. Only 4 days left and a very sad story with my baby CHARLIE. He is my family (little dog) An ex-coworker takes care of him. I know him since ~3 month. He is a horder and very lazy. And some more issues he is doing against common sense... But he is the only human being available to help me out with Charlie. I hope my 240.000 miles to "pay" my sponsor back is soon over. I pray for letting Charlie be safe and alive til mommy is done in IN. Need team driving and no pet friendly policy. Only pet friendly when leasing truck. They changed policy :-( Nevertheless I learned from this forum not to lease. I was almost tempt to do so, to get Charlie out of hell. My nerves are on the edge right now. Sorry for the long post. I will try to stay focused 100% for CDL. once I sit in the airplane to IN.

ALL ON THE ROAD OUT THERE: BE SAVE AND BLESSED. THX D.F.

(How can I upload a pic of Charlie ?)

Pre trip inspection

Hi DF and welcome!

Our instructor had a pre-trip video that someone recorded that was excellent. They allowed us to get it early in the program so, we had plenty of time to review it. Also, they allowed us to record them while they did their overview with our class. Cole

Thx Cole. I will ask my instructor in Celadon school /IN Anyone out there who will also start Sept. 15 ?

New to the Industry Addy

Hello Addy, you should first read a lot about trucking. After you have a good picture what it's like to be a truckers lady: ask yourself why you like to be a trucker and how much passion do you have. Since when do you dream about your new career etc.

I am a brand new member here and I hope I can figure out how to answer you gals and how to continue my diary.

Addy, follow your heart. When you here a big yes, I'll like to do this, then go for it. When doubts, wait a little longer for your decision.

Good luck to you
