Completed 1st Solo load

Https://photos.app.goo.gl/cBFGJnivzCawELVS7

Just checking in: Thursday I took assignment of this truck! I've driven it 1,600 miles since then. And delivered my 1st load from northern Utah to terminal I'm Springfield MO. Last few days have been great! Everything is easier and more relaxing, enjoyable without a trainer onboard.

How to survive training

Just now finishing training. I hear you. I'm through the requirements, but taking weeks to get routed to HQ.

I focus on the driving sleeping eating. Eventually, the trainer will be out of the picture.

Drive for owner/op of small sub

Correct! The L/Os have been throwing out big #s, and I forgot previous reads on TT.

Thanks for the refresher.

Probably the best way to improve backing skills :-)

The GPS is a true hazard at times.

Yesterday it properly routed me West around the hwy 40 Memphis bridge. But was zero help around the Louisville bridge closure. Last week in KC, MO, headed to GA it directed me West on 70, even with picture guidance, I said BS and went East, which it eventually agreed. Sometimes the company GPS will wig out for 30-45 minutes, ridiculous.

Drive for owner/op of small sub

Winding up Prime training, 30k miles in 6 weeks, by this weekend.

Decision time: company driver, walk away lease, drive for o/o small fleet under Prime authority.

Preference for me leaning to company. Drive for o/o few more CPM. Walk away lease, with more money comes higher financial risk.

Inspectors on the road for International Roadcheck this week

Checkpoint in ND today. Many DOT vehicles, 2 staged to chase. Had crawlers to slide underneath.

Allowed this Prime truck through, guessing they were full, or on lunch break.

DOT physical, how long til results?

From Halelton: Picked up 37k lbs of Reese Cups, took to Ogden, UT. The receiver gave us candy bars on the way out. Scheduled on a load back to PA. (I'll stop the play by play now)

I feel like they're spoiling me. I got to drive through WY hwy 80W and into UT hwy84. Wow, what scenery!

These are probably team-only loads, so I won't be on them when solo.

Does your license come in the mail?

DMV can only use a physical address. They will not mail your license to a company. You're technically driving illegally since your license address is not correct. I'm at Prime now, wish I drove my car instead of getting the rental -my only regret.

List of fines or points

double-quotes-start.png

With my CLP, got stopped at the scale, had to slide the trailer axle to get legal, but no fines -could they have fined me? How much?

Can a student with a Permit (CLP) be ticketed by Law Enforcement?

I did have to go inside to speak with the lady officer. Perhaps my obvious naivete, and a little southern charm, got me off the hook.

Looking for a link to explain fines, csa points, and associated costs. Does the, company, driver pay costs of fines? Is CSA score impact driver and the carrier?

Greater discrepancy between dispatched and actual mileage

Very little chance of getting closer to the correct mileage if you say nothing. Likely testing your resolve, don't be a pushover. But choise your battles.
