Unfortuately that happens sometimes. At least you are not freaking out and are just rolling with the punches. That goes a long way to making your life as a driver easier (being able to roll with what is thrown in your way).

Good luck with the rest of your journey to Prime.

Word of Advice keep all important documents on your person or your carry on bag, Greyhound lost my bag this last Sunday but I had all my important things in my backpack. Only lost a bag of clothes. Walmart here I come. I only used the Trucking Truth study material for my permit exam and passed all tests the first try.

Ty..that is what I'm studying...ty

Well suppose to be starting on the 26th,,,,but today found out I can start on the 19th if I can find a PSD who will take me on as a student...... So if there is anyone out there looking for a student...... would love to train with a female, but I know that probably is not going to happen. If you are out there looking or waiting for the right student,,,,please let me know. Thanks Lil

Thank you for all the help! Will be on my way Friday morning....woot.

Prime On Monday, Jan 19th

Conrats on making it thru the initial selection process lilragamuffin! Did you talk to your recruiter about doing the wal-mart dedicated out of Lewiston ME? Just curious if it was something that you were interested in or not. I got to fill in on the wal-mart dedicated in Olney, IL for a week and loved it. No worrying about getting to a truck stop before dark so you can find a place to park. It was great. Good luck on your trucking endeavors. =)

Never thought about that,,,but I have Mccains not even 8 miles from my home,,,,,,,,So I was hoping I would get some from there.....would be awesome...
