Starting Prime (Questions)

I will be starting Prime's training in Springfield the Monday after Thanksgiving. I have already taken the test for my learners and passed. I just have to go tomorrow for my physical and take the results to the DMV and I will be done with that. My questions are... 1. Do you get the same trainer for both the PSD phase and the TNT phase? 2. Will I be limited to only trainers that live near me? 3. How much is too much to pack? I plan on taking one large duffel bag and one laptop case. 4. During the TNT phase are you home once every 4 or 5 weeks or do you work straight through the 40,000 miles?

I'm really excited to go. I wished I could just go to sleep and wake up a month from now. Although I'm not looking forward to the 30 hour bus ride from Lynchburg, VA. At least I will be getting there Sunday at 1pm. I have read where people get to Campus Inn at 11pm only to be waking up a few hours later to go to Orientation.

Also, The High Road Training Program was great. I highly recommend it for anyone that hasn't already taken the test yet. I only missed 7 out of 125 questions. And most of those were because I was so nervous.
