PackRat and Matthew, thank you gentleman!

I told my wife yesterday feels awesome to be in a truck by myself, but weird at the same time, like I stole it...very surreal.

Truck # 11386 if you see me out there Matthew, say hi!

Cheers, Kelly

I remember that feeling. It's awesome being on your own, and a little nerve wracking at the same time. It's great to see your progress! Slow and steady wins the race. Just keep it foremost in your thoughts - "Don't Hit Anything." That's your main goal. Get that first safe year behind you and then you can start setting some other goals.

Congratulations!

Thanks old school! Yes that was the other feeling as well. Rule #1 Breathe! 😃

Awesome job. I just got my 2018 last week too. I can absolutely relate the feeling. Completing my first week solo tomorrow, you'll love it out here.

Congrats, my son is starting his solo week for wil-trans as soon as his truck go thru maintenance.... hopefully Monday. Again, congrats on your training.

Wil-Trans:

Darrel Wilson bought his first tractor in 1980 at age 20, but, being too young to meet OTR age requirements, he leased the truck out and hired a driver.

Through growth and acquisition, Wil-Trans now employs over 200 drivers, and has a long-standing partnership with Prime, Inc. to haul their refrigerated freight. The family of businesses also includes Jim Palmer Trucking and O & S Trucking.

Just remember to slow down, breathe and don't hit anything.

Absolutely, did you get yourself a Pete or Freightliner? I'm currently riding, around in a Pete myself, it's an alright truck. Got a few bugs with it, my biggest annoyance is the lack of space in comparison to freightliners. Something I've gotten used to, just means I cuddle more junk on my bunk then I would in a freightliner. rofl-3.gifundefined

My biggest gripe with the Peterbilt 579 is no storage. No place for a microwave in a 2016... That changed with the 2017 but you loose storage.

Now that I've almost gotten all the gremlins exterminated it's about time to turn it in. *sigh* Although, I'm looking forward to some of the creature comforts thw newer trucks have. Especially all the goodies on the 2019-2020 Freightliners.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

We'll help you make the right choices and prepare for a great start to your trucking career.
