Lone Wolf's Bio

I have a quiet confidence that screams loud. I am humble, but strong. I am stable, but rebellious. I am giving, but not naive. I choose my battles wisely. I'll stay silent until it's time to fight... and when that time comes; FIGHT, I do. I am wolf. Quietly I will endure. Silently I will suffer. Patiently I will wait. For I am a warrior. I will survive.

SpriMo Bound for Prime Orientation... Anyone Else?

We aren't the only ones. Two trainers last night at Applebees said they were doing the same thing. Bobtailing to Salt Lake to pick up a trailer.

SpriMo Bound for Prime Orientation... Anyone Else?

So Friday went like this... 0530 wake up and shower. Took shuttle over to Millennium Building for breakfast, safety meeting, and tour. Millennium Building is awesome. It's huge. You'll just have to get through orientation and see it for yourself. Very impressive. 1130 Lunch. Phone call from my trainer during lunch... 1330 to 1530 spent 2 hours on the pad doing pre-trip and driving bobtail around the pad. At 1530 was released to Anthony, my trainer. Met Fleet Manager. Then spent 2 hours driving bobtail with Anthony around Springfield and out on the highway getting comfortable with the truck. Felt like a 16 year old kid in his first car. It was great. Then returned to pad and practiced backing until 2200. Backing is gonna take a lot of practice. Very challenging. Straight backing was pretty straight forward. Offset backing was another story. I felt like I was doing horrible at it. Anthony said I was doing great. I think Anthony was telling stories. But with each attempt and pointers and tips from Anthony I did see improvement. Gonna take a lot more practice but I'm confident I'll get there. 2230... dinner at Applebees with my Anthony and a few buddies of his. Saturday we're gonna be on the pad practicing more backing. Then at some point gonna cruise around Springfield and sorrounding highways pulling a trailer getting comfortable with that. Then Sunday hitting the road with a real load. I can't wait!

Off to PrimeSpringfield 6/3

So I have been inching my way toward driving a truck for a year now since my bestie made the jump. Because of that I have her experiences to encourage and warn me and I am really grateful for that.

I start in the first class as Prime changes her training program - the only real change being 50k on the road with a trainer as opposed to 30k before. But with the extra 20k miles comes a little bump from $700 to $800 a week gauranteed as long as I am available for dispatch. This includes waiting for a truck.

My recruiter said there was a lot of mixed responses to this but I am happy for the extra training. I have dipped my toes in the manual but it's time to dive in. I even got a little nudge note from Brett (thanks, I appreciate it!)

Wish me luck!

Good luck, Judith. I'm currently going through Prime Orientation. Take the High Road Online Training Course offered on here. It'll prepare you nicely for the permit and endorsement tests. I ran through it twice and passed them all first try. It's a great tool.
