Hello, Just wondering if anyone has any womanly advice for me as I start my training in a few days. I'm getting a little nervous (ok, I'm a WRECK!). I've never been a mechanically inclined person and I'm worried about being able to pass the Pre-Trip in a few weeks (not to mention the backing and driving). Maybe I'm letting myself think too much. I HAVE to pass everything the first try because a job is waiting for my husband and I as a team as soon as I'm done with school. Any advice, or just words of encouragement would be appreciated!

Marie, Take a deep breath, breath slowly and you'll be fine. Think of this as the beginning of your wonderful dream of teaming with your hubby. You are feeling like everyone else has but don't beat yourself up over it. You are excited like a little kid at the morning of Christmas waiting to see what Santa brought him or her. Keep us posted as to your progress. You will ace this and be on your way to a great new chapter in you life.

Thank you for your comment. I'm looking forward to joining the ranks of Women Truckers. I've set up a YouTube channel (Truckin Twosome) to kind of have a permanent record for memories for myself as well as keeping my friends and family up to date, but it's becoming more than that with getting views from people I don't know. Guess I've got a lot of support out there so I'll continue the videos. Would love to have you follow me there!
