Gonna try to get a quick update in while we’re waiting to get an air line changed. It’s been a busy couple of weeks. Springfield up to somewhere in Ohio. Then to Detroit to grab a load of tomatoes that came in from Canada to haul to Miami. (If someone can explain that I’ll buy you a cup of coffee.) Raced a hurricane because “Give it to the Florida boys. They’re used to that stuff.” Ran across the Glades to get orange juice to take to Phoenix. Run out to LA to get produce for Cheyenne. Finally 43,000 pounds of chicken feet (Yes, you read that right. Chicken feet.) to Portland Oregon where I sit now. The way we’re running, I should have my own truck in no time.

I don't understand that one either. I wonder which would be fewer miles: Detroit to Miami or East Texas to Miami?

I've read every page of the thread, following along. At each click, I was ready to see what came next. This thread gave me some insight to how testing goes and the phases of training.

Glad I’m an entertaining read. As for the testing and training goes, it will depend on the company and state. Fun fact: I’m from Florida and now have a Missouri license. Once I get home I’ll have to change it over.

So I’m sitting in a truck stop just south of Chi Town because we’re way ahead of schedule. Got to stop at Iowa 80 in Walcott today. For all you other rookies or truck fans that haven’t been there, you owe it to yourself to go. It’s truck guy Valhalla. I guess I like torturing myself, seeing all the pretty stuff I’m not allowed to put on a company truck. Of to Cleveland in the AM to have lunch with my trainer/mentor/partner/buddy’s mother. Drop in Maryland on Saturday morning, then we’re going to try to swing back to Springfield, then hopefully on home.
