As a trainer, you take on a new level of responsibility outside of yourself when you bring that student onto your truck. I'm not saying you have to roll out the red carpet for the guy, but expecting him to live on nuts and berries is a bit much in my opinion...

. ..But don't expect many happy students when all they have to look forward to is 11 hours of driving and a protein bar at the end. Just my .02

You make it sound like torture. rofl-2.gif

Seriously, I know most people look forward to a good meal after putting in their work. And I do splurge on meals at terminals...especially when someone else is buying. dancing-dog.gif


A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

My current (and first student) come on my truck broke. Needless to say, I've kept him fed. If a few dollars here and there keeps their stress down it makes for a safer environment. If you want, call it cost of doing business.

Turtle your cracking me up too. So true probably would not make a happy student. Protein bars really? I get packages of tuna and Vienna sausage at wally world but I gotta have real meat. I thought I was spartan but you are going all Leonidas from 300.

I must confess I've been waiting so long for a load today (finally got one) that I had a quarter pounder at McDonalds just now.

All joking aside, I am prepared to provide for a student's needs. I dont expect them to suffer. That's why this feedback is so important. Thanks again to everyone. I got a load to pick up now...
