Steveo hopfully one of those bodies will be mine by this time next week. Safe travels and keep up the good work. So glad to hear about your experiences and in a positive light. I am feeling positive about my choice to go with CRST. And at my age (58) there are not a whole lot of new career changes that i would want to do. This is the one thing i have always secretly wanted to do since i was old enough to drive. And with the support of my loving wife i am getting closer to the attaining that dream

MillionMiler i do not know how the system works on getting hooked up with trainer but if i am allowed to request a trainer i would most definitely request you. Is there anyway to do a private chat or some way to exchange emails and or numbers on this site. I would like to give you my info but dont want to break any site policies here.

Millionmiler24 that would be awesome i would love to be with a trainer such as yourself. I have read many of your post and can tell that you love driving and have the desire to see others do well. I would be honored to be trained by you.

Steveo congrats on this major milestone in this great career. I must say you are correct about getting out of Denver in a knick of time. I am here close to Denver starting my third week of CDL Training and there is about six inches of snow on the ground and more coming. Suppose to test out this Thursday but do not know what to expect. Hopefully it will let up soon, as i cant wait to get to Cedar Rapids and get hooked up with a trainer. Just not the one you had. Keep up the great work and please keep the updates coming. It is really nice to see someone with your positive attitude and great demeanor making it through this very challenging aspect of becoming a professional driver.

Thanks Steveo and Cwc for your replies. Steveo are you getting paid for driving with trainer. I am wondering because that is really great if so after only 14 days in school. I have decided to go with CRST and should be headed off to school the 2nd week in Oct. Also Steveo i noticed in one of your replies somewhere on this great site that you are from the so cal area, used to live in Yucaipa and also Montclair areas myself, now in Kansas... Looking forward to getting started on this new path... Thanks again to all for the input it is such a blessing that this site is available to everyone who is considering taking on this career.

KEARSEY i just watched your video from the link and would like to thank you one for taking the time to make the video and second for sharing it with me. It has givin me some more things to think about. I love the honesty and truthfulness not only from your video but also from this site. I have been lurking around here since i first decided to take driving OTR as a serious career choice. Also would like to thank OLD SCHOOL for jumpin in with his thoughts...thats what i am talking about with regards to this fourm it is really the only place a newbie like myself needs to have bookmarked, all the people really seem to want new comers to know what they are getting into and to understand all the options available to us.... and not to forget Big T. I am glad to hear positive input about CRST. Also Kearsey i hope you have more videos to watch as i would like more insight into what seems to me one of the best careers a person could be part of. I will be lurking somemore and hopefully have some great stories of my own to share coming up in the next couple of months. Once again thank you all for the honset input and please keep up the great work..if all web fourms would structure themselves the way this one does the WEB would be a much better place. Scott P.S. i just read Brett's book from start to finish in one sitting and plan to read it again..what a great book and for Brett to put it out there for everyone to read for free..WOW..thats what i mean about this fourm...love love love it..thanks you

Does anybody have experience driving for CRST.

I am trying to decide which company paid CDL School to sign up with and CRST seems to offer pretty good deal. I understand that it will be team driving for a minimum of 10 months. Which i believe i could handle that, especially if the miles are there. From my research it seems that their team drivers average 3000 - 4000 or more a week and plus paid twice weekly. My situation is such that i have no money and cant afford to even get my permit on my own. I am 57 years old and have been out of work almost 1year now after working 34years at the same company. I have always wanted to try driving a big rig and this seems like the time to finally give it a try. Any thoughts on this company wod be greatly appreciated. Thanks
