...in case you have a manual trans; splitter needs to be “up” in the high range. I know, sounds odd...but that plus the cruise setting is how the Cascadia’s opti-idle works.

Glad to finally have met ya!

Today was a great day. Lots of us got our badges today. I also took and passed my sim class final. Just like in the real world, paying attention and being prepared is everything!

Excited to take the next step and hope to beat from a trainer soon.

Do a good job and you will not get "beat" by your trainer.

Britton...here is a link to a library of articles about:

Life on the Road With Your Trainer

It will help you better prepare and understand what to expect.

Good luck.

Thanks!

Today was great. Got to see the Prime terminal , attend a safety meeting, tour the facility AND drive a bobtail! That was awesome to finally do.

Now to wait for a trainer and continue training here in the meantime. Oh, I also grabbed Michael for a selfie! I'll share it if he doesn't mind but I'll wait to make sure.

Bobtail:

"Bobtailing" means you are driving a tractor without a trailer attached.

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.
