I had so much fun doing the 90. watching my tandems drag like that was awesome!!

There were several times over the years that I had found myself in an area that was actually too small to get turned around in the normal way. Well if you jackknife the truck hard enough while backing up and you get the angle past 90 degrees, the trailer will actually start rolling forward as the tractor is rolling backward. You have to be really careful not to hit the side of the trailer with the cab of the tractor! But I've gotten out of a few spots that way. It's not something you really want to be doing if you can avoid it, but it's interesting to watch.

I will get to find all this out soon. I should have a trainer soon. My orientation ends thursday, so I should have one on or before the following thursday. I am so excited!!

Can I ask you a question about this school? Do they scream at you like Ive heard about the others? I can do this and am very confident but I cannot guarantee that I can deal with someone screaming in my face that would make me more nervous and cause me to wreck. What are your thoughts?

Starting With Swift

Thanks guys....I hear you Brett on the team situation. My buddy and I got on well in training school together, but I'm sure it would be different when your locked together in a truck. I just hope I get a good trainer to continue on my path. I would class myself as easy going and able to get along with anybody. I will keep you all posted.

Swift is a great choice in my opinion. Have several family members that have been employed by them for many years. I also have someone I know who works in the Payroll sector so I think they are a good place. I wish you luck and keep us posted.

New to the idea

I just wanted to introduce myself here.. I am new and just now starting to research and find out what all the hype is about. I am a former sales woman and sick of the 9 to 5 and never getting outdoors. I have several family members that are truckers. I am a girl and can do it! I have raised horses and cattle and this is my next venture. Any advice would be gladly taken!
