I know I have been quiet durin your journey on here because I have been busy focusin on my future goals however I have been followin it and just like me, you went through some tough times and Plowed right through them. Now stick things out with CRST in the Expedited division for that ever important FULL 1st year and so many doors will open up for ya. I can't begin to say enough how proud I am that you have gotten this far. I am cryin tears of happiness for ya right now.

Maybe tomorrow or Tuesday if you are still there I would love for you to meet my Fleet Manager. His board is who's you want to be on.

Fleet Manager:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Brother, that means quite a bit to me coming from you. You're diary here in TT was my decision to try out CRST. And your past struggles and accomplishments were what really inspired me. We share quite a similar history, mine just being slightly older than yours. But your outcome was so much better due to your choices.

I truly look forward to meeting ya brother!

So, for perhaps the most awesome surprise of the day, I got to meet MillionMiler (in person) from the forums here!

Had some great conversation and got some great insights to get me started in trucking. I think he may be around for another day or so, which means a wealth of information available to me to right here in person. Very awesome!

Also, I start company orientation tomorrow. Not sure about much there except that it lasts about three days and it's the final step before getting hired and sent out with a Lead Driver.

It's been a long and exciting and exhausting day. I've got to go lay down before I fall down. Many thanks to all of you for your encouragement and support, thus far. But I still need ya... The adventure is really just beginning!
