Congrats, Big Scott. Every time I see a CFI truck I look to see if you are behind the wheel. So far, I've been disappointed....but one of these days....

As of May 25th, I hit the one year mark with CFI. I have over 120,000 safe miles. It has been a great ride. The only states beside Alaska and Hawaii, I have not been to yet are, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire and Main. This is a beautiful country. I feel that I have proved myself reliable and that I have a good relationship with my FM. I seem to get almost everything I want. Sometimes without asking. I love CFI and trucking. I pull dry van and this is the easiest job I have ever had.

A very special thanks to Brett for creating this site. It was a great tool to help prepare me for the realities of trucking.

Stay safe.

Scott

Yeah I know - that is what I look for! I saw several CFI trucks today, but insofar as I could see, none were you...but I will keep looking.

Mine is in my driveway for a few days.

Congrats Scott ! Isn't that an awesome feeling, when you prove yourself, and your fleet manager takes good care of you

CONGRATS! 1 year is a major milestone! (But I'm sure you already knew that from being here!)

There is still a lot to learn, but the basics should start becoming second nature. Never let up, keep pushing to be the best driver you can be, and I wish you continued success! Remember this feeling of contentment about your company next time you are having a bad day.

Drive Safe!
