So when are you scheduled or trying to get scheduled to head out?

TBD. Looking like early to late July. At this point I think I will wait for PSA test/results/Dr. visit. Also have an upcoming court thing (Plaintiff not Defendant!) Will probably lead to another date... just need to see how schedule plays out. Classes start every Tuesday so except for the "we need to have an open position" thing I believe they will be happy to take me whenever the dates work out.

My training was about 6 weeks. You can drive already, right? You just need to learn procedures and Qualcomm and clock management.

You’ll be fine.

Qualcomm:

Omnitracs (a.k.a. Qualcomm) is a satellite-based messaging system with built-in GPS capabilities built by Qualcomm. It has a small computer screen and keyboard and is tied into the truck’s computer. It allows trucking companies to track where the driver is at, monitor the truck, and send and receive messages with the driver – similar to email.

Keeping it in your lane and not hitting anything. Lol.

I’ll be rolling through your area in a little bit. Headed to Appleton, then Amherst.

Maybe you should talk to Wolding. I am very happy with my choice. They Have OTR and regional in WI I believe. I think they even gave an hourly option in WI as well.

Regional:

Regional Route

Usually refers to a driver hauling freight within one particular region of the country. You might be in the "Southeast Regional Division" or "Midwest Regional". Regional route drivers often get home on the weekends which is one of the main appeals for this type of route.

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.
