Anyome gonna be in the terminal? Ernie and Turtle its about time.we meet.

Any newbies arriving or TnTs... my treat at Fire n Ice restaurant.

i should be there Fri thru Mon.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

TNT:

Trainer-N-Trainee

Prime Inc has their own CDL training program and it's divided into two phases - PSD and TNT.

The PSD (Prime Student Driver) phase is where you'll get your permit and then go on the road for 10,000 miles with a trainer. When you come back you'll get your CDL license and enter the TNT phase.

The TNT phase is the second phase of training where you'll go on the road with an experienced driver for 30,000 miles of team driving. You'll receive 14¢ per mile ($700 per week guaranteed) during this phase. Once you're finished with TNT training you will be assigned a truck to run solo.

Ok What's wrong with the new truck? Besides it's an automatic?

Sorry Rainy, I'm on home time right now. Not leaving out until early next week. Getting together will happen when it happens.

I was just there this past Monday, which happened to be my first time at a terminal in about 3 months. And I was only there long enough to swap trailers with another driver to repower the load. I never even walked in the building haha
