New Graduate!

Welcome.

CFI would give you a good run of the 48. After a while they may work you up to Canada. Will need a passport. You will also run into Texas and Georgia.

I got them to run me east coast to west coast a few times. I enjoyed my time there. Got my one year ring with them. Good equipment and good people too.

Good luck wherever you go.

You won't run Alaska..

AC at truck stops

Hey Andrey

CFI has those at the Laredo terminal. Yes they work. Install window bracket, hook up hose open panel inside truck.

Swipe or punch in credit card, get AC, TV internet.

Was a bit expensive for my liking. Never used it again. Also not available at any rest area I prefer to park at.

I've parked in truck stops that charged $15 for the night, CFI reimburse cost only reason I pay to park.

Sorry this idea didn't work out for Annie and Tom's family.

Questions to ask your first trainer...

dancing-banana.gif dancing-banana.gif dancing-banana.gif Great job.

Ask what to bring less is better, remember your in a small space. Ask anything and everything you can think of, this is your training time.

Good luck Steppenwolf

CB tuning

Hi. Get the Cobra Holds it's value and is a great CB.

Should come pre tuned so just hook it up to the antenna and power. Try it out should work fine.

Never had any problem with both my trucks and sticking CB in. Worked fine, I Think the mechanics at shop could help you if there is a problem.

Good luck, stay safe Steppinwolf

CFI Reviews?

Hi Melissa Welcome...

Don't know about Prime but they use Freightliner trucks, CFI has almost all Kenworth trucks. The Freightliner is wider inside and makes a nice living area.

I drove for CFI for 15 months. The pay was low but went up over time. Training was a couple of weeks then solo. You will get more at Prime. Speed is 65 mph.

They have a few really nice terminals. Joplin, Atlanta and one near Canadian border. Michigan I think. Now remember if you're making miles you won't be at terminal much. From what Lacey says Prime has really nice terminals too.

At CFI dispatch can be a pain sometimes but I ran good miles all over the country. CFI is forced dispatch so you run what you get.

Hope this helps you some.. Any other questions just ask...

Dumb question...maybe

Hey Moe Figure it like this 500 miles a day So 2 days to destination then cruise in In the morning for delivery. No pay for resets...not turning miles.

Now sometimes you will only get 3/4 hours Driving due to construction, traffic, long time getting loaded or unloaded so if you run recaps watch these days so you can even out the driving hours over a couple days as Laura was explaining.

Good luck. You seem to be doing a lot better.
