It sounds like things are going well! I can't wait to have stories like those! I am just starting out on the road and it's definitely been a cool journey so far. I am glad I found this site too though as the stories and information will help keep me going through my first year driving.

I remember my first day on the road... It was was crazy, I didn't get much sleep the night before, finished my last day of orientation and met my trainer, and he told me to drive.... Talk about on the spot, but I did it and the only thing he said I need to work on was not using the clutch so much.... It was a great feeling to know I was able to drive such a large vehicle with such ease.

There's another story for ya ;)

Sorry for the late replay Daniel and Jon...

@ Daniel, Yea she was a beauty, it was a bummer I gave her up for a week home with the family... But family was more important at the time, besides, they gave me a 2014 International Prostar Eagle+.. that was a FABULOUS truck... ahhh I miss it...

@Jon Glad I could have helped.. I miss being on here everyday to help, it's a bummer I get so busy from work and then family... after 5 months Im still not use to it..... Good luck to you sir.
