Come on guys... I want to hear some awesome things that happened to you this week!!!

1.) Two months in a row I was named "Top Performer of My Fleet". We have 93 drivers on my fleet, so not shabby. Plus I get $50 in Prime rewards to use in the company store, cafe, and salon/spa..... (take a guess where that money gets spent? lol) This is my 4th month this year and it is an awesome feeling.

2.) I met a very special guy six months ago... and we just solidified our relationship.... so I got a new boyfriend... a former Marine, Truckin boyfriend in a turtle slow Prime truck lol

Okay..... Your turns!!

Well, I trifecta’d this week out of Pittston! After running 2800 miles straight. Then transferred my cdl to N.C. now waiting on my tnt to get routed out here so I can get started. In the mean time, I get to spend quality time with my wife and three dogs and see the rest of the family. Congrats btw Kearsey!

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

TNT:

Trainer-N-Trainee

Prime Inc has their own CDL training program and it's divided into two phases - PSD and TNT.

The PSD (Prime Student Driver) phase is where you'll get your permit and then go on the road for 10,000 miles with a trainer. When you come back you'll get your CDL license and enter the TNT phase.

The TNT phase is the second phase of training where you'll go on the road with an experienced driver for 30,000 miles of team driving. You'll receive 14¢ per mile ($700 per week guaranteed) during this phase. Once you're finished with TNT training you will be assigned a truck to run solo.

Regarding "former Marine" most of us say "once a marine, always a marine."
