Agreed! The funny thing though is we are not the military. We are not recruiters. We come in peace. We are the good guys here to help! If you are going to sign up for anything, then sign up for us. I am extending an open invitation on behalf of all of us here on TT. Quit being a girl and sign up already. I dare ya! I do not know if you really got in in you! I want to see a lurker prove me wrong and reply back to me. I am waiting...

Yes sign up, What's the worst that can happen? Someone answers a question about trucking honestly and from experience? We aren't those truckers with a sour patch attitude. We know a company isn't bad because we left it. We know not every four wheler is a bad person because they are risking their lives cutting in front of me and ruining my wrangle jeans. or making me spill my big ol' bag of M&M's (shaddup I like my candy when I drive its a bad habit I know) It takes literately less than 5 minutes to sign up. And once you do you will have access to real truck drivers from all over the board ranging from box/reefer pullers to skateboard awesomeness to suicide jockeys and tanker yankers. Info on Company sponsored schools compared to Private schools. Companys that will Students right out of CDLA school.

What is the best inverter or CB? what sort of cooking devices should I bring. Which company allows pets (I have had a dog with me since I started I highly recommend brining a pup it makes it much more enjoyable and forces you to get out and exercise)

And if you join and reply to this Topic as your first post on TT EVER, I will send you a invisible non existent Cookie. How can you pass that up?

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