He looks way too happy to have just been knocked into. Some heat exhaustion factoring in there?

Just got my CDL Permit here in Arizona, heading for Prime Training Saturday, August 24 in Salt Lake City

You won't need steel toe boots unless you're going into the flatbed division.

Dang that reminds me I need to slide in to a boot shop someday soon and get some of those.

Would add flip flops for shower.

☝️ Important statement there, 40 days.

There's nothing that could convince me to go barefoot in any portion of a truck stop, let alone a bacteria Dreamland like the bathroom. So many people going through every day bringing and leaving God knows what. Get those flip flops. I would recommend some decent slide in ones , not the 99 cent wal mart special I tried to make work.

Time to Say Goodbye...

Wow I heard you were leaving through my dad when he called me today.

Hate to see it confirmed. Like some of the others said, it'll be great to see you on here, even for the occasional visits.

Thanks again for your time and attention in person too. You really gave 100% dedication, hope that issue in your life receives all of it so you can be happy.

The FUNDALMENTALS: Get Out And Look (GOAL)

Packrat that's an amazing point that you GOAL more now than you used to. Maybe it feels like you're on a good streak of no issues backing and don't want to break it?

I started my first month winding myself around to blind side backing most truck stops and shippers somehow. Can't say I've increased my GOAL count but I at least do the same as I have since going solo. Peace of mind is just so much better than trying to save a few seconds.

New guy going with Western Express

This is a refreshing change to the norm, a positive thinker seeing opportunity instead of the more common "woe is me I'm out of companies to apply to except X Y,Z ."

Good on ya Ryan. If you keep seeing the silver lining, not only will other folks (important folks like dispatchers) enjoy working with your positive attitude, but the lifestyle itself will be more an adventure than a lot of people fail to see.

Custom...

Yeah, it's a rough job but once I smooth it out a bit it'll look ok.

Selling out a tad would have been nice. Maybe helmet stickers specifically would have been too much but these things aren't easy to find

Get out of the truck and explore

Yea that car looked like it didn't draw in the crowds anymore but I am fascinated to be near pieces of history.

On the plus side, whiskey Pete's is back to providing free drinks to patrons playing video poker and all at the bar, just found

When did you decide you were an experienced driver?

I think the cowboy outfit is a great top tier trophy item.

Old school, when does your outfit arrive?

Get out of the truck and explore

Totally awesome idea there Turtle. I've been fortunate in my miniscule amount of time here to partake in some of these great travel rates as well.

In the last four weeks I've enjoyed Colorado Springs for craft brew, Las Vegas with the wife for a reset where we saw shows and got to within two feet of a giant piece of the Titanic (no pictures allowed just believe me), and stayed cheap at the Tropicana while the truck slept in Primm at whiskey Pete's.

Next month I'm planning to park the truck in our Pittston terminal, fly the wife into the adjacent airport and go explore Boston and the north east together. Really maximizing the time we have together doing this so far and partaking in vacations for half the air fare rate essentially.

Very much agreed, go out and explore
