millionmiler24 (CRST Ambassador)'s Bio

Became homeless in 2016 and looking to get back into trucking to get myself out of this situation. I figured this site is by far the best route to get myself out of this situation and back into making some good money so I can buy me a RV and live the Van/RV life and have a better life or just get a house and a 4WD/AWD vehicle somewhere where I can finally be alone. As of June 9th 2017, I have been accepted to restart my CDL training with CRST Expedited Trucking out of what is now going to be my new hometown of Cedar Rapids, IA (at least for BARE MINIMUM 1 year). As of June 30th, 2017 I have now REACQUIRED my Class A Iowa CDL through NADTA (North American Driver Training Academy) and CRST. Also as of 01/04/2018, I have now been approved through CRST's Safety Department to become a Lead Driver which is our version of a trainer. I have now as of 04:00PM CST on January 12, 2018 been officially certified as a Lead Driver. As of February 15, 2019, I have been officially certified at our highest level a driver can go: Senior Lead Driver. I thank everyone here at this site for their support that they have given me to restart my journey. I have prayed to God and he has answered my prayers. Maybe when I save up enough cash, I would like to live what's called the Van Life when I retire and travel the country. I am considering purchasing an RV or a Van that has been converted into a RV to do this. Its tough with livin costs risin all over the country, plus I have trouble makin up my mind on where I want to live, or I may just buy a house and 4WD vehicle somewhere. I can’t make up my mind on how I want to handle that aspect of my life.

Million Miler is a trainer there. He suggested a good video which I watch but the sound goes out about half way through. I have a basic understanding of the systems, but I have a lot to learn. Thanks Susan.

Doug check your email. I emailed you pics of the PreTrip guide I had when I went through NADTA. It’s accurate as of June 2017. Just hope nothing has changed since then. They should give ya one when ya get there similar to mine. 😜

MAJOR Changes with me but definitely for the better.....:

My fellow drivers: I need to bridge a gap here:

For those who have been followin my journey here and remember this post:

Divine Intervention In Truckin'....and Also Some Updates Regardin My Students.

I need to clear up somethin there:

That student, me and him co drove for about 5 mos and he resigned on Oct 30 2018. We still keep in touch though. I went back to trainin people right after that and its only gotten better since then now. Also I still have residency in Cedar Rapids. The plan me and him had about me usin his address fell through when he resigned.

Hope that bridges the gap.

I had discovered I had forgotten to clear that up when I was replyin to Smart C on the other CRST thread.

Congratulations! We all knew you had it in you!

It's funny because we've got another conversation going on right now where a person was trying to point out how "bad a company" CRST is. Of course we're doing our best to point out how they actually have zero experience with CRST, yet somehow they think they are an expert based on nonsense that they've gathered from the total failures who couldn't figure out how to succeed at trucking no matter where they started.

Millionmiler, you're a good solid driver. You'd do well wherever you want. We're all proud to call you our friend! Keep it up, and stay in touch.

double-quotes-end.png

Yes I am aware of that other post and if it’s ok with y’all I am goin to link him my diary and my posts on becomin a Lead along with this post and maybe if he reads that along with the starter pack we have linked him multiple times, Especially Brett’s book, then maybe he can get some understandin on how this industry works first and then how CRST does things if he wants to come on board.

As promised OS, I posted that reply.
