Prime CDL Training - Springfield, MO

Hey folks! Sorry for no update, plans have changed for me so I haven't really thought about getting an update up.

I finished up my psd training a couple weeks ago. We got back and got in backing training and got ready to test out. I felt pretty confident but it took me three tries to finally get it but I did. Backing is tough!

After passing I decided it was time for me to head home and get some family time. Spoke with office folks and they weren't very happy about it but I just couldn't stay out any longer.

I knew it was going to be hard to handle the separation from my family. After a month passed it all started to become too much. Soon all I could think about was going home. So I let them know and have been home since.

This is where my otr journey ends. I simply cannot emotionally handle it. I came into this knowing it would be hard but hoped I could find a way but I just can't. You guys out on the road are warriors, it's though.

I enjoyed the job, the driving, the experience that comes with it. Prime has a solid training program and my psd trainer did a great job being patience throughout my struggles. I wish I could see it through but I just know it won't happen.

I thank everyone for their advice and support through everything. I regret nothing and would recommend Prime to anyone. I'll have to pay back for the training but it's on me and I'll be taking care of it.

I did find a local job though. It's a straight truck but it pays well and will get me home everyday. It will allow me to take care of my family and financial responsibilities. Without Prime I wouldn't be at this point either.

I wish everyone the best and hope to stick around and keep up with everyone. Thanks again.

Trailer Tire Woes

So we're driving along into Indiana when we started to get warnings about one of the trailer tires. We make a quick stop at the Petro and see that it's definitely leaking and going down. Make an appt with the shop, got in to park around 0100 and an appt for 0900, got in at 0800 and finished just now at 1105.

We couldn't see it at first but the tire had a nice big crack in it and it completely deflated over night. My first on the road issue and I'm amazed at these warning systems.

Anyway, all is well, appt for drop off is 1830 and we only have a couple hours to go and got some decent sleep.

Yeah, cold is cold, then you add wind, yuck.

Up here near Peoria. Make the 7ish hr trip from Springfield, got in late last night around 3am. I got to drive about 150 miles which was awesome. Went down through Peoria so thankfully it was so late! Pretty city either way. Got into the delivery spot, took a nap, waited to be unloaded, took a longer nap, not we're waiting for the 10 hr to finish up so we can head out, not sure where yet!

Argh! Need help! I Panic During Testing!

Hey man, I honestly don't have any great advice but if you can find a way to channel the same determination you have been using for everything else into this you will find a way.

I think it's important to give yourself a break in the sense that it's ok to be nervous. Sure, they're examiners but they want to see you do well and pass. I know I would, if I'm testing someone I'd enjoy seeing students displaying their knowledge.

I would try to approach them much the same as anyone else when testing. I've talked to you several times, you are a very respectful person. My point is, act the same as you do with others, your demeanor is already polite.

My point is, try to humanize them. Just keep at it I know you'll find a way.

The more you do it, the better you'll become. Just takes time and repetition. Once you get out by yourself, it will take at least 6 months to get pretty good at it, 5 years to be a master at it.

Makes sense. Never stop learning!
