Was dealt a blow to starting my adventure this weekend. I have sleep apnea and I hadn't really been using it not going to lie. And I have to have 70% compliance in last 30 days. I have been using it but I wouldn't meet the compliance by this weekend. So my date has been pushed back to my original date of 10 July. My wife said you better have that machine on every night.

Minnis B, you are correct. My wife just texted me the photo to show me that they were found. I have the originals in my travel bag as I start packing to hopefully be out of here next weekend.

Jim Palmer

Well, I am starting my official blog today. I wasn't slated to go to JPT until July mainly due to the fact I had to order a new social security card and being that we just moved and couldn't find my birth certificate. Yesterday I had gone to get my eye exam and a new set of specs and my wife sent me a picture of my SSN card and birth certificate my son found while looking for some of his stuff in the storage unit. So I jumped up in down inside and emailed my recruiter and asked him if he could bump my arrival up. Got an email back and he said he would push it this week so hopefully, I will be out of here by next weekend and on my way to Montana.

Ready To Start

Well, next week I will be in my 30-day window, and my recruiter Adam from Jim Palmer informed me we can start the official process of interviewing and running all my background info. I would have been ready to go sooner but unfortunately, during our move to the new house I misplaced my SSN card and had to order a new one. I plan on keeping a blog, mainly because without this forum existing, getting information about trucking and all the different companies out there would have been very time-consuming. I do go to other sites but by far Trucking Truth is, in my opinion, the best source of information available and provided CDL practice that I am taking full advantage of. So blogging will provide some other Joe/Mary with what I am experiencing as they try to weed out through information.

Thanks for taking the time to do your blog. I will be heading to JPT in July and you have done a great job in giving an idea of what to expect.

Getting Close

Good Morning to all, I would just like to say thanks to all you out there taking your time to share your experiences out there in the world of trucking. I will be heading out to Missoula, MT in July to start hopefully what will be a start of another career moving commerce across this great nation of ours. I have always had very much respect for the trucking community since I was a young boy. After completing 20 years of Naval service I retired in 2015 and have been kind of bouncing around trying to find where I fit in. I decided to go to college and while I like college and enjoy learning I have finally realized that I am just a person that needs to always be on the go. So as my countdown continues I will be checking the forums and reading and processing as much information as I can to help prepare myself to be successful and join another fraternity of brothers/sisters that make this country run.

South Dakota

Hello all, here is my situation. I am 39 y/o retired navy, 100% disabled so money is not the reason why I am looking to get into trucking, I like to be on the move, I have a family but they are used to me never being around and frankly I think it helps to keep the peace lol, for those that are prior vets with lots of deployments you know what I am getting at. I don't have a CDL and I am looking to get mine, I don't want to owner operate or get sucked into some lease like CR England, while obviously there is lots of trucking in this area there are no huge companies around here to train you and help you get the driving time you need. I am willing to commute to Sioux City or Omaha to get training and work out of those areas. So is there anyone with knowledge of whats available in those areas i listed, any assistance or advice anyone could provide would be great.
