CRST Specific Questions (and general Team Driving Questions)

With Brett and all the other Moderators blessings, I would love to write a long article detailing some of our trials and tribulations and how we have dealt with them.

I for one will certainly look forward to your article. Another 'gramps' here starting my re-learning process on Monday. My brother and I are considering teaming up in the near future. I've bBeen off the road for eight years and opted to do another full round of CDL school then on-boarding with Schneider. My previous attempt at this life was with another, ahem, 'carrier' and let's just say my memories and experiences weren't so swift. :-) By the way hello everybody! My account looks brand new but I've been a lurker for years now. Thank you Brett for this awesome resource. Using the High Road now to prepare for next week. Alot is coming back to my old brain thankfully.
