Well, I'm officially upgraded with JPT. On my 60 day probation, then I can take a passenger or a pet with me. Glad to finally be done!

Well it has been interesting. Last week I spent 12 hours to get unloaded which made me a day late back to Missoula, MT but I did everything I needed to do in a couple days. Crazy how things worked out, a fellow employee, josh brought in a load to the yard that delivers to Lewiston, ME. I'm about 200 miles from Lewiston, delivers at 0330. I honestly didn't think I was going to make it, I left out Thursday afternoon, shutdown early because I was way tired from being up super early. But I ran it, haven't had much time, it's been nothing but running! I was scared of the east, because of parking but I've stayed at rest stops, just been getting here early and shutting down. Seems to be working out fairly decent.

Other than that, once I get this to Lewiston, I'll be taking a few days off with the family. Should be a good week, be a little over 3,000 miles. Will def be my best paycheck that's for sure! Haha but yeah, things are going, still a lot to practice and learn but I'm getting better each day, feeling more confident in my abilities also.

Hope you all have a great week, take care and I'll check back in when I hit the road later this week.

That's awesome Aaron! I am very excited to start my career with JPT next month. I follow Josh on youtube and I have been following you on this site. Thanks again for taking the time to post. Stay safe out there and enjoy your home time.
