I am still a permit holder, and he was sitting next to me. What happened was I followed the gps when he wanted me to take a different rout that would have skirted the city. He gave me a good five mile warning, but I was locked in on the gps because I’m new and haven’t learned to follow alternative instructions or think for myself. When we hit the ramp he saw what was happening and said something, but I couldn’t get over. He took it in stride and said, “Well, tonight lesson is about tunnels.”

Nothing really special to report. Had a 34 hour cut short by dispatch so my trainer is down to three minutes on his 70. Grabbed a load up in New Jersey, and had to flog it pretty hard to get it to Indy. Now here’s the fun part. We shut down about 1:00 pm, and we get dispatched at 3:00pm. The load was 40 miles away, and had to be picked up by 9:00pm. Yea. No good. My trainer calls dispatch and explains the situation, and we’re laid up until 7:00am. The good news? There a race track across the street and they were running.
