I got assigned my first truck! I had to put in the shop already Buy should be good to go in the morning.

I wasnt nervous about going solo until now it just sank in lol its gonna be an adventure that's for sure!

She's a 2014 freightliner lightweight, a little beat up but she'll do. My first time in my own truck bobtail and I ran out of fuel bringing it to the shop! In the middle of the yard that was fun!

I'm excited and nervous to finally get moving, need to go to walmart to get my fridge and a few other things in the morning then she will be all set hopefully!

I'd post a pic but I'm nor sure how to attach one. It's not the international I was hoping for but at this point I'm just glad I can point and day that's my truck haha

Bobtail:

"Bobtailing" means you are driving a tractor without a trailer attached.
