Trucking school starts in less than 8 hours...

Yes! try not to stress . you can get through the school . i had the same thoughts as i started my school but once you get in there you will feel better and gradually learn how to handle a truck and everything needed to get your cdl. good luck!

Are there jobs my wife can do in the cab while I drive?

Great question! i have been thinking of jobs you can do while riding along too.. i think online stuff is the most obvious.. what about telemarketing? i know thats not a great job but its something or maybe some kind of school for computer work if not knowledgeable enough..

Knight training week 2 about to begin!

Hello all , just wanted to throw this out there .... I'm on my first reset starting last night and im ready for it..haha I felt like we were running pretty good last week but my trainer said we were taking it easy..shocked.png I guess i will build up tolerance for driving longer hours without breaks but right now im feeling good about 3 to 4 hours at a times.. I've learned alot so far and have alot to go but so far driving has been close to my expectations.. one thing thats irritating...MAN !! can i just pump some fuel in the tank without punching in 50 different numbers in the thing...lol.. but not paying for it is nice...showers so far have been cleaner then i thought they would be. my trainer is kinda old school he doesnt use a GPS ..company directions and an atlas . so i figure its a good thing to know the atlas and how to use it....i do plan on breaking my gps out maybe week 3 though to get use to using it...well im trying to keep it short so i will end it here....Peace JJ
