TMC newbie Diary

Dan, I am interested in what medications you had to get verified. I have been diagnosed with ptsd but have been taken off the meds. I was on lexipro. Also I am on a CPAP. Would you mind expanding on what types of red tape you had to go through to be approved?

Fort Knox does have some nasty low clearance bridges. I don't really miss that place

Tips for going on a military installation

Hey guys, have saw a few videos about guys having problems finding their deliveries on a military installation. A lot of army installations have their own app called "guide on" example "guide on ft benning" Most gps's are worthless on most military installations. This is a free app that will take you to what ever building number you want to go to. FYI

Questions about Old Dominion P&D

Hey guys, I am currently in the army and will be retiring soon in the Fort Benning area. I am really interested in trucking and want to do a year at least of OTR but after I get that experience I'm looking at my options. The Old Dominion terminal in my area has openings for P&D drivers. Does anyone here have experience with Old Dominion P&D?

1. How do they treat their drivers?

2 Is P&D steady work or do you have to wait to be called in? 3. It looks like a smaller terminal and they aren't advertising line haul, only P&D. Is it likely that a line haul job will ever become available?

4. Does anyone here have experience with the Columbus,ga terminal?

Thanks in advance. Truly enjoy this forum
