Man what a fast 2 weeks

Left Salt Lake City yesterday with my trainer with my first live load! We are headed to Feankfort Kentucky! I didn't drive yesterday on day one but I have driven 400 miles today! My trainer said he was very impressed with my driving! Still working on tight quarter driving and down shifting is getting smoother and floating gears too! Having a blast. We should reach our destination by tomorrow night shut down and have about 20 minutes from flying j to our six a.m. Drop in Frankfort on Monday morning and hopefully our next load will be set by then ready for us where ever it may be!

I go out with my trainer tomorrow:-) mimimum of 28 days, 200 hours, and at least 40 backing into docks, then after that I return to a Central terminal for a road and backing test (between two trucks), refer pre trip and another written exam! That will be my upgrade to become a solo driver!

Thanks everyone! I honestly wouldn't have made it had it not been for this site. It has been such a great help from the High Road Training Program to the support and friendship you have shown! Brett to answer your question has it been easy the answer is NO, but have I enjoyed it YES I have! And you are right Old School, the restaurant business is similar to trucking with the fact it is NOT for the faint if heart! Star I brought the washer with me, cause I knew that I could make it. I will keep you updated as I can!

I knew coming in (thanks to TT) that Centrals Training Program was fast paced but I didn't know it was a whirl wind! I would have been lost had I not used the High Road Training Program! Keep your fingers crossed and I will let you know how it goes tomorrow! Special K

Salt Lake City Bound

Congrats Special K. Yeah our class at school had 18 people. To my knowledge there are 3 of us left after 3 months. 9 of us graduated from the school and were hired. Now 3 left. I know at least 2 of the 9 had better job offers driving locally near home. Dont know the reason the others left.

Are you going to CR England? We just picked up a relay load from their yard. CRST uses their drop yard at their terminal in Salt Lake and I have also picked up a relay from their yard in Denver.

No not cr England but Central Refrigerated on my way as we speak lol

Thanks everyone for your support, Brett like I said earlier, the older I get the more cautious I have become! I used to just jump in feet first and sink or swim. Everything will go the way it is meant to be! I just need to relax and enjoy this new adventure. I have traveled quite a bit to Mid West States and North East, but I have never been out West and I am so looking forward to seeing Salt Lake City! I need to focus on the task at hand and my know that my future looks bright. I got this!!!!!!!!!! I truly thank God that he has blessed me with this opportunity to follow my heart! I know that he is in this with me!

I tried earlier today to fiqure out how to post pics but I have no idea. Any who, I will put stuff on my facebook page and if you are a facebooker feel free to send me a request and I will accept it!

Thanks everyone I got my bus ticket today I'll leave the bus terminal at 10:00 Sunday morning and head to Conley GA. If all the paper work is good (it will be cause I have made sure that all I's are dotted and all the T's crossed) and I pass the physical, which I should unless my blood pressure is high due to nerves and I am a little concerned about the eye exam, I have worn glasses since I was seven years old, I am restricted to glasses but no major problems, just can't see at a long distance. They just are so strict, I just had an eye exam and got new glasses I am going to take a copy of my latest eye glass prescription just in case. Then after that I will leave GA the following Saturday morning at 5:30 a.m. and travel to Salt Lake City and arrive there around 10:00 p.m. Sunday night!!! Heck of a bus ride, lol. Fingers crossed, and prayers appreciated!!!!!
