I tried and failed.

I have zero intentions of burning any bridges. They did nothing wrong I just cannot commit to this at this time due to unforseen circumstances.

I tried and failed.

Well as most of you know I went to Knight Transportation after a lack of trainers at a different company. The folks at knight have been great. I had to come home due to a family emergency and cannot leave due to that same issue. I would like to thank everyone here for their guidance, thoughts, encouragement, and great advice. I'm sure this is the end of a dream but my family comes first. I cannot do the OTR thing but will continue to follow my dream and drive even if it's not OTR. Some people say that when one door closes another opens and I can say I hope it opens fast. I bid you all well wishes and hopefully one day I'll be able to live this dream.

My journey begins for real

Well the journey has stalled. We have made it as far as olive branch Mississippi and that is it in 3 days. Truck is in the shop and no telling when it will be fixed

My journey begins for real

Thanks Brett and old school. My morning started about 2 am as I awoke and couldn't sleep so I played there tossing and turning until it was time to head to the terminal. Got there about pep and sat with the trainer waiting for a load. We finally leave a little after noon to pick up an empty then off to pick up a load of copy paper headed to the Chicago area. In true rookie form we have the hiccup of truck issues. About 30 minutes from the pick up the a.c. acts up. Its about 90 in the truck but we roll the Windows down and go on in. As we pick up the load and head north the a.c. once again craps out. So we are going to grin and bear it abd head to Memphis to the shop in the morning. I'm hoping but I'm sure it won't be the only hiccup for this 28 days of training.

I'm up for 28 days of training. Looking forward to getting some real schooling. Trainer seems to be a really cool guy from our talk today. Can't wait to get this going.

I'm finally getting a trainer. Seems like forever since I've started and tomorrow morning it all happens. I am to arrive between 930 and 10 in the morning to meet with my trainer and we will be getting this party started. As excited as I am it's just how nervous I am all at the same time. I had the pleasure of speaking with him today for a while and the lessons already started. I will post as much as possible. Wish me luck or my trainer hell wish us both luck I'm sure we will need it. I haven't been in a truck since the end of April I'm sure I am rusty with the very little I learned in school.

Sorry to hear this. You may want to contact the recruiter and get clarification. I just attended orientation and the paid for my hotel. Also the 4 weeks will not be spent in the hotel. Some is classroom and other parts are on the truck. At least that's how I understand it to be.
