Thanks guys!

We have a load and are heading out this morning as soon as I talk to driver lineup and the Twic person.

Have a great day and be safe!

TWIC:

Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

Kim we still driving back and forth across Virginia in all this wonderful rain. I should know I-85 pretty good. Been through Knoxville twice in two days not a pretty thing. Glad u didn’t have to stay at campus long. Get out there and have fun and let me know some of your best moments.

Donna, we will be working our way east in the next 30 days so that I can transfer my CDL. Right now we are heading west and I just finished driving my first full shift. Yowser! When driving west in the evening you really want to make sure your sunglasses are within reach. Lesson learned. lol There was a gorgeous sunset but no pictures were taken. There will be many many more of those.

I’ve met so many great people while at Campus but I was ready to get back out on the road. Maybe we will run into each other out here at some truck stop. Be safe!

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

Congrats Kim, you have rec’d some awesome advice and all spot on. There will always be days that make you wonder, and always days that will make you smile big and bright. It’s just the way it is. You have successfully completed your first big hurdle, now focus on the next one and hit it out of the park as well. Be safe
