It's been awhile

Hello out there,

I've been doing hotshot freight for the last 6 years. 1099 work. Rates are way down, freight is scarce, way to many drivers. Just my 2 cents for what it is worth. I almost became a truck driver with the help of you folks here almost 6 years ago. Well, I'm going to pull the trigger this time. Even a new 2.0 highroad to dig into! I have much to learn, back to the drawing board, studying for my CLP now. I'm quite sure I will have questions/concerns along the way. Be well out there drivers.

Lance from NJ.

Getting a medical card

I was issued my medical card about 1 month ago, and it was a urine test.

Hi Rainy. I hope all is well. I'm in that north Jersey area you speak of. Not quite Jersey City area, but right around Union County. Quite a few freight lanes running right through Linden and northward.

Hey Turtle. I'm off to Joplin for school June 27. I'm looking forward to seeing this great country. Always wanted to see the west coast. Amongst other places. I'll get there. Anywhere other then NJ!!

Yup. All comments above being correct. I am from NJ, born and raised on the shore. Patiently awaiting my departure from this northeast madness. I've never been farther south then North Carolina, never farther west than Pennsylvania. I'm looking forward to going OTR.

Big Scott...thank you for mentioning CFI here on TT. I almost threw the towel in regarding a CDL sponsored school that would take me in. Your information regarding CFI has been spot on. I have a ways to go but I'm right behind you. Off to Joplin June 27. I'll see you at the terminal. Coffee on me. Be well.

Hey Daniel. Yeah, I remember those couch nights. Happy wife leads to a happy life, or so I'm told. Divorced now myself.

Paying Dues: Enduring "The Suck"

Hi Tyler. I'm about to head out to school with CFI after being turned down by 10 CDL sponsored programs. I have a felony, was in the joint over a decade straight, home now 9 years, nothing but dead end jobs, and no relief in terms of financial stability. Then I found Trucking Truth about 7 months ago. After being turned down by all of the CDL sponsored programs, I almost gave up. Then I got into an accident driving for a taxi company in April. I thought that was the kiss of death for me. But, a fellow TT member mentioned CFI to me. I applied and was accepted!! I'm off to Joplin next month to start my journey into the trucking business. I'm nervous as heck to be honest. But my attitude and resilience is at 100% everyday. I will make this happen. My point here is that you must endure some uncomfort, disdain, change etc....I to will have a trainer soon enough. I will listen, learn, and ask 1000 questions. You got this Tyler, keep going no matter what. I hope to see your progress in the message boards. Be well.

1 month to Joplin

Thanks G-town. Without trucking truth and the wealth of information here, I wouldn't be half as far as I am now in knowledge alone. Thank you all.

Be well.
