Some uncomfortable things to ask about and I feel odd asking but still dont know them

I agree that is a lot of clothes. i guess you could do a quickie sink soak and try to dry as you drive. if i had a months worth of clothes i probably wouldnt need to live on a truck lol

-------------schism- the gov't shutdown has slowed things up some but get the schedule and just show up. sc said they are catching up but moving forward -- deweykid, what school did they send you to and did you have to stay 24/5. thats the way Extramile in bishopville works,but then again they dont get paid till i'm working

Airbrake test online

brett made a comment to someone about their scores. personally, i like the idea so you can see my soft spots(airbrakes)and it is incentive. i am taking swift home tests daily and sometimes go back and forth. no complaints but both tests on airbrakes seem excessive or am i just thinking to hard. this is meant for everyones advice. i am impressed that brett takes such personal interest. i compared it to starcar as learning to tie your shoes online and then taking a multiple choice test.

Wrecks

I was trying to teach my teen how to drive in the driveway. she hit gas instead of brake. she is the only person i know that could total 2 cars and never leave the yard. i got a ticket for letting an unlicensed driver behind the wheel. no one was hurt thank God for good ins.

Talking With A Trucking Company Recruiter

After a long steady work history ,found myself divorced with 2 small kids. i built a shop next to my house and began pet grooming. 18 years later,the kids are grown and i am trying to get my cdl. the recruitor asked if i paid taxes,of course i did. all i have is my schedule c which is profit or loss along with 1040. this has been accepted in all areas of my life which need proof of income and she said it worked for her. self-employed looks like un-employed w/o proof. i also have a list of some regular customers,but have never needed it

I start next weekend, this site has soothed fears

i know for all of us this was a big decision,but having you guys to fall back on is priceless. i've found out how to dress, keep clean etc. still a little baffeled on BOB and the cell phone. i need a better name,i will be taking my 18 year old daughter so i know i need a camera,does a kindle fire work better than a pc. how do you guys handle that, where does the wifi come from. i hear about apu's. what is that how to stay warm or cool? i will keep in touch and definitly read every day. i have one week till training with swift. thank you all for sharing your experiance. i need 2 of those magic 'washcloths'. what is a pm.

How long for responses from potential hiring offers

its only been a few days but they all say they will get back in 24 hours. i have a clean record, but if they weren't interested shouldn't they let me know. am i getting antsy or paranoid. i study your tests 4 hours a day. 4.0 in school was a breeze,but this stuff is hard.i've made little trucks and trailers with weights on them so i can mix and match.
