Glad to see that Don! You've just barely got your feet wet - you're doing real well. I like the way you're setting goals, and striving to reach them. You'll get to that $1,000 gross benchmark before you know it. Once you get accustomed to that you can set a goal for $1,000 net pay! You can accomplish that and more.good-luck.gif

Oops! I misread your post. That net benchmark is already what you're working on - good for you keep it up!

I appreciate the kudos. Looks like this week will end with just over 2200 miles, but I am averaging a tick under 2500, so CFI is keeping this rookie going. I am getting better with trip planning and using my hours, so fingers crossed that miles will stay up. I'll be going home at the end of this coming week, so that will kill my weekly average, but the dog misses me, haha.

Just own it Don!! And I'm going to spoil it for you... you'll continue to make new personal records for awhile to come. And it still feels awesome!

Thanks for showing up at just the right time Don, I've been looking for this post for about half and hour!

I'm currently just as excited as when you originally posted this. For driver appreciation week my company gave everyone across the board a raise. In November or December I was supposed to get a .02 cent raise. Now in October I get a .05 cent raise and I'll still get that. 02 in Nov or Dec.

So.. like I said years later you'll still be making personal records.

Can't wait to see what this looks like!
