That is really, really great JMart. Fantastic. Congratulations!

Once you get some traction, some positive experience, talk to them about the concerns you have being away from family...they might work with you some.

Give it your all, no regrets. Safe travels.

Before I went back to CFI, I spent some time looking for something else. I am drug testing for a company in Eastern MT that carries frac sand for the oil fields in western ND using pneumatic trailers. So, no dangerous gasses and something semi-local.

Good luck JMart. Glad that you steered clear of the hazmat tanker.

Safe travels

HAZMAT:

Hazardous Materials

Explosive, flammable, poisonous or otherwise potentially dangerous cargo. Large amounts of especially hazardous cargo are required to be placarded under HAZMAT regulations

Good luck with whatever you choose to do. As it's been said you need to do what's best for your family. If everything goes ok it'd be great if you could tell us about it regarding your day to day activities with that.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

I will start a new diary once I start. My start date is the 16th of this month.

Jmart, good luck and I hope your decision works out for you and the family. Maybe our paths will cross, as I am moving to the Billings area towards the end of the summer.....

Jmart I hope everything works out with the new company. I am on my way to Joplin tomorrow for the weekend and start my orientation on Monday. I will be posting my journey with the trainer when I am able to do so.
