I think there are 3 or 4 of us starting on the same date. It might be fun to do a 3 or 4 way perspective on our journey through training and then into driving.

If you are starting on the 3rd, hit me up with an email and lets see when we are all arriving to the bus terminal and hotel. Maybe we can come up with a game plan to blog about our experiences without overlapping one another,

Let me know

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

Good luck to you guys. Its been interesting for me here this week. Nothing makes me regret Prime or anything like that. I think it will be a good company to drive for. I started a thread on the cdl training area of this site updating it daily. You guys cwn also pm me if you got questions. I'll do my best to answer them. I know I was stressed when I was coming down.

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.

It's all good. We'll have a great time in Springfield.

By the way, when do you get in? I'll be there probably Sunday night, so I'll get all day Monday to spend in the motel. :P
