Just passed my road test...PTL here I come.

I have appreciated this site since I found it. It has helped me get through CDL training and I've put a lot of effort into it. I want to be a great driver. Passed my test today and have made the decision to go with PTL. Maybe a little smaller than some others but I believe it's the best fit for me. I will be heading off to training in a week and a half but wanted to show my appreciation to those that I've listened to and learned from so far...looking forward to getting out there.

And yes Brutus gets to go with me.

It's all good Dan. We know you're not a super trucker yet because you don't get mad and stomp off when we're teasing with ya!

Lol no Old School, what I lack in technological graces I make up for in respect and humor...usually at my OWN expense ! Believe me I'm taking it all in to be the best I can be.

Dan is having a little trouble figuring out how to quote and then respond to the quote. Hey Dan, we do have some helpful tutorials available on how to use the features on the web site. Just click on the "truckers forum" tab near the top of this page and scroll down near the bottom to find those videos. It will help make your posts more readable.
LMAO! I thought I was the only one confused about who this Dan guy was always quoting but never commenting. I looked at several posts and there's Dan smiling and quoting but never commenting. I thought he was trolling

I'm sorry guys...I think I learned how to do it right but then forgot. My bad.

Descending steep downgrades in an automatic

Hey!!! Not funny! you better not be heading to Prime or i will request you!!! lol

Saw a Prime truck stopped at a blueberry farm in Hammonton last night on my way back from Philly. Stopped and talked to him for a while. He was a 23 yo owner op...such a nice young man with a good head on his shoulders. I pumped Jarvis for info about the road and business...then gave him some lessons on life in general. Fair trade I'd say.

So here is something to consider...he is sooooo protective...where will you park and be able to sleep? every rest area and truck stop will have people walking by. when backing into doors there will be people walking around. that will be the distraction.

i have parked next to dog trucks and had to move because all night the dogs barked. how the hell did the driver sleep? and as a new driver who will be exhausted, is that safe?

animals will get used to the routine. My cat sits on the dash when parked but jumps down and sleeps when i start the truck. when i pull the brakes he demands food. be knows we are parked.

so the distraction while driving i think will be the potty breaks and backing with others around. Many customers will not let you walk your dog either. so then what?

It would be an adjustment. He does sleep with me and I would never let him keep barking. I don't yell at him, just tell him enough ! He is used to being walked in the early mornings, afternoons, and maybe a few times at night. Never has an accident. If I'm stuck at a customer...he'll have to cross his paws.

No wonder Rainy was on me like white on rice about being overconfident! Thank you all again for all the sage advise.
