With my experience on bus rides, always expect them to be late. That is a bit more than I would have expected, though. embarrassed.gif Good luck!

Ok, so good news is I've meet 3 others that are on the bus heading to Springfield. The bad news is that instead of arriving around 1 pm Sunday, like originally scheduled, we won't arrive until 10:30 pm Sunday night. Greyhound had some issues in Nashville and we had to be rerouted. 25 hour trip just turned into a 34 hour trip. Hopefully no more issues will arise. Was really looking forward to getting a good nights rest before orientation Monday. Oh well, it is what it is.

I'm headed to Springfield, but not for prime orientation. Lol

Well, my Greyhound bus adventure just went from bad to worse. Left out of Greensboro, NC Saturday 12 pm. Was scheduled to be in SpriMo Sunday 1 pm. So, long story short... The bad: 2 reroutes and 1 one hour delay later put me getting into Springfield 11 pm Sunday. Now the worse: bus leaving from St. Louis bound for Springfield, 6 pm departure time just got delayed until 10:30 pm. That puts me at getting into Springfield at 3 am Monday morning. That's if all goes well and no more issues. So what was supposed to be a 25 hour bus ride has turned into a 40 pain in the arse... at this rate I'll have to get off the bus and head straight to orientation stinky, tired and hawngry... gotta love it.

This must be part of Prime's new training program to get you acquainted right away with the life of truck driving!

That's funny, I said the same thing to the guys I'm traveling with. There's 6 of us heading to SpriMo for orientation.

You can keep each other awake tomorrow if you’re grouped up.
