Drug test questions

Am I the only one that is a little concerned about the amount of questions here lately about drug tests?

Maybe it's just me.

That feeling!

Rolling, yeah line Bud said it was my first night of TNT. We had sat at the yard for a week while he tested his PSD student out so to say we were all ready anxious to get rolling was an understatement!

Thanks y'all!

That feeling!

Last night I sat behind the wheel. The proud owner of a crispy new class A. My tnt trainer had driven the day shift, now it was my turn.

We stopped at a loves right inside new Mexico, and left with me behind the wheel and him settling in for some rest.

Man, I can't tell you the Cheshire cat sized grin that plastered my face as i pulled out, floated the gears up to 10, and pointed us to California!

The night got a little long, but seeing the lights in Gallup was awesome. We had another Prime driver we were following, a friend of my trainers, and he kept an eye on me and every once in a while would holler across channel 19 to check and make sure I was doing ok.

Pulled into Kingman this morning, and my trainer slept sound all night. That alone made me feel good. I know there may be times I'll have to wake him, but getting that first night under me was awesome!

Pointless posts y'all, but another thanks to the veterans here for tips and pointers and encouragement!

My student driver landed himself in hot water. Almost fired!

We are FINALLY rolling out of Springfield this morning headed to California. I consider myself very fortunate for the fact me and my tnt trainer get along great. Maybe it's just the age I've got on me, but I understand the preciousness of time. And especially the value of it. Daniel, you handled the situation more calmly from the sounds of it than I would have during my supervisor days. Me, I'm happy to have the wheels turning!

6string or Heavy C; what's this mean?

First time I saw the 53' doubles being pulled I was amazed. Just something this Carolina boy never saw before.

Prime Inc - The Journey Begins

Carl, I'm getting ready to go into the tnt phase of Primes training. Let me tell ya, I'm loving this adventure! Like everyone is saying, learn as much as you can from your trainer. When you're over in the passenger seat pay attention on how he handled his rig. What rpms is he shifting at, how deep is he double clutching, how wide he takes his turns to clear the trailer, things like that. Good luck, have fun, and keep the rubber side down!

TT Jukebox

Not really music per say, but my PSD (Prime student driver) trainer got me hooked on audio books.

He was a fan of westerns, amd i have to admit sometimes I looked forward to hearing the adventures in the wild west!
