REALLY Heading to Veriah (Spelled Veriha) Sunday for Training Monday. Training Plan Update...

Congratulations, sticking to it works. You will get it done. In time you will discover what these paths few months did for you in a positive fashion. Anything that comes easily isnt generally something that will mean as much as something you had to work, and worry for. Good luck.

A Thank You, And A Promise To Our Community

A thank you to everyone involved at this site. The study resources are second to none, and the advice given is also top notch. Sometimes it may have been a little harsh, but often times text seems harsh because you cant put a tone on text. I haven't posted much but I'm here nearly everyday checking the tracker and reading.

Thanks again everyone who participates in discussion here. Recently met a reader here who lurks, and had questions about Millis. Was at a fuel island and he came over for a chat. Talked so much in fact I left the nozzle in the right fuel tank, and started to pull away. Thank God my wife was on the truck and noticed or I would've really screwed up.

Most cheapest/smartest way to obtain CDL A?

As someone who chose company paid training, I did have to come up with some upfront for schooling as my company requires. The thought of setting forth on this new career and lifestyle, having a partner (my company) who was interested in my success as much as i was was very important to me. First check stub was from march 25, and the most recent was October 21. My gross to this point is $31,890. I am very happy with the choice I made and knowing my company is still interested in my success makes my job a little less stressful. Anyone who has been in that seat knows there are pressures from all around, stress to an extent at all times. I think having to worry extra about a mistake made would end in unemployment would add to that. Not to say I don't worry about screwing up because I do, but I don't fear that something minor would have me looking for another job.

CB tips

If at some point you do decide to talk much, invest in a better mic, a noise cancelling one to be specific. Mine has proven useful a few times so far.

The Highway Bottleneck Awards, 2019

Atlanta has three on there only because trucks have to take 285 if not delivering inside of it. At the root of it that really is what makes Atlanta traffic so bad.

Starting School Soon After A Long Wait

Good luck to you, I hope you find it as rewarding as I have. If you're as anxious as I was I couldn't imagine that lasting for years.

5 weeks into Prime PSD Training. Frustrated, unsure, going broke.

double-quotes-start.png

Kinda wanna see the video now. Probably cheer me up. Link? Will find your article on here and read it. Love the stuff that lady Rainy used to post. And yes was ready to test weeks ago now its like this looming cloud I wanna see but hope it doesn't storm. Too much time to think about messing it up. Auto fail rings in my head. Know pretrip by heart. Not much pad time to learn points. Lots of road time though so I have that at least.

double-quotes-end.png

I am "that lady Rainy". lol and thank you! I used a fake name to write my novels years ago, and used my dogs name for forums. I never expected to be here 4 years!!! Last month instarted a youtube channel so i switched this profile to Kearsey (my real name) for sanity reasons. I have people calling me by so many names i feel.like Sybil.

the YT link is in my profile. Lots of rookie tips going up there. ;) Even my story of how i failed.

If you are ever walking across a truck stop parking lot and hear someone yelling "Hey Sybil" that's me.

Oops! SWIFT pulled their job offer!

Contact them and ask if you can ho through the swift academy as a CDL holder. It will be more than orientation, but worth it if you want it. Worst they can say is no.

Parking between Pottsville PA and Edison NJ

Yea I dont know if it was all stores or a particular one. I was pretty sure I saw something posted about it here, but could be mistaken.

Parking between Pottsville PA and Edison NJ

Yeah Pete...209, you experienced something I haven’t. Lots of country secondaries in the mountains. Some like 54 are truck friendly and a nice drive. Others, not so much.

Glad you made it through and found a safe place to park.

I thought about that Cabelas as I passed it, but saw something recently where someone posted something about them changing truck policy. Wasnt sure if this was one of those places, and didnt want to risk pulling in and not being able to get out at 5 pm ish.

Got up early, appt window was 0800 to 1730. Pulled into guard shack at 815 and got a QC message while I was driving that said they dont want you there til 1400. So the Walmart in Edison is nice. Hope you all have a great day.

Parking between Pottsville PA and Edison NJ

I was actually north of Pottsville, but getting down to 61, I took the 209 tour through the city. Ended up heading west to a flying j in Myerstown on I 78, the loves in Shartlesville was a zoo. I figured heading east could've ended up in sitting in a lot of traffic. Thank you for all of the suggestions and if I ever say anything about coming back to pottsville remind me about the 209 tour so I dont do it again.

The drive in on 54 and 901 was quite nice though.

Parking between Pottsville PA and Edison NJ

So I'm at consignee, getting loaded in the morning in Edison, NJ. At this time of day I'm assuming parking will be scarce, and trucker path wont show me any of the places to park. Brings up the map but no truck stops. Any suggestions?

Tyson - Rochelle Illinois

Had a drop and hook yesterday myself, thankfully I didnt have to put the trailer in this spot. Had to get a spotter to pull it out.
