I just got issued my own truck Friday after after being on the road with a mentor for 3 weeks.

I wasn't as rusty as I thought since I didn't leave the transmission on the side of the road, but we didn't have any tough backs except for a place in NJ which my mentor handled since I not comfortable in the NE anymore.

My first load has taken me from IA to OR. I deliver in the morning. The rest of the day is for some much needed rest.

Keep the shiney side up.

How did it go and what's next?

I've a couple of runs in Wa and OR. I just delivered in CA. I now sit in CA waiting on breakdown since a airbreak chamber sprung a leak on my way to my next pick up. I hope to be home next weekend for some much needed home time.

I'd say so far I'm pretty satisfied with Decker, and I'd highly recommend them for anyone coming out of school, or that already has time in the seat.
