Aaron, I just set up my start date with Jim Palmer on Sept. 6th. Alex is my recruiter also and she remembered you when I mentioned your name lol! You should get some kind of referral bonus no? LOL!

I was wondering how close the High Road training is to the Montana CDL study guide? I've been doing the High Road training with great success and don't want there to be any surprises when I take the Montana test.

Thanks and keep the updates coming!

I did study the high road like crazy also, plus I did the Montana practice tests. Those helped out a lot, since a lot of the questions will be on the actual exam. The first day you'll do drug test and physical, then study for the test. So no worries on passing. It's pretty easy.

I doubt I'll get a bonus only because I'm in training and not currently employed with them yet. I wouldn't need the bonus anyways. I'm just doing this to better my life and my wife's! Haha but I hope to see you around sometime. If I'm ever in Montana during September I'll stop by.

Today was a pretty easy going day. We dropped our load in Illinois. We then headed over to the TA and had dinner, did some laundry and now just relaxing. We are heading to Wisconsin tomorrow morning, grabbing a postal service load of junk mail and taking it to billings Montana. Wonder if they're gonna shoot me over to Missoula to test out early or just route us out of Montana again. But I'm up for whatever they got.

Pretty funny we pulled into the TA parking lot and he told me to back it in, and I'm like, can I go to the empty spots over there, he told me no so I just put it between two trucks. Again I had to do a pull up but it's in there, nothing hit! 😂 But I guess I can do it I just rather not have to if I can park it around no one. But I see his point, practice it now so he can help and it'll help me also.

Aaron, how big of a duffle bag or luggage are you carrying with your trainer? Carry-on and a sleeping bag or something bigger? Thanks!
