Congrats. My son’s training is quickly winding down. Hopefully in a week or so he will get routed thru Springfield to upgrade.

Congratulations Scott!

Now the real fun begins. You have challenges, you will have many emotions throughout your day. Just remember to take it slow at first, don't get complacent. You can only do so much in a day. Remember what you have learned from training.

Keep your head held high, you have accomplished a lot. Now go out and make some money.

Your first run is one you will never forget... you're going to make a lot of mistakes just learn from them and don't be in a hurry that's when trouble starts. Good luck brother

Yard sales, pawn shops, Craigslist are all good sources to check, and all difficult while on the road in a big rig.

If you ever get to my area of VA, I have a second CB that I’ll give you.
