So it’s been a while since I’ve posted but wanted to say Hey I am still here. I finished TNT in February and upgraded as a lease operator with Prime. So far so good a minor glitch here and there but doing well. I won’t go into my decision to go lease but will say that I do have enough years operating businesses to be comfortable doing this.

I will say I am still adjusting to being on the road the toughest part is being away from family and making the time to be there. We are all getting there and starting to get a groove.

I just ended up with time, currently sick apparently on home time I acquired a tick with Lyme Disease. I have dodged that forever my mom and sister had gotten it anyway a month and a half ago a pulled a tick off of me and paid no mind to it. I had some wrist and finger pain a few weeks ago and figured it was more like carpal tunnel then anything else. Well it then my elbow, shoulder and eventually my knee and ankle joints are hurting beyond belief. I can barely stand up and it took two hands to remove a fuel cap and raising and lowering landing gear had been rough. I got my antibiotics to take for the next 21 days. Feeling just a lil better and wanting to get back on the road. I did learn a couple things though, my health insurance does not cover me out of state and. pay attention to those little pains before they get bad. Also laugh when ya can cause it helps

So anyway Hi everyone I’mmmmmmm back!


Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.



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.

Seriously... stop back in the MAIN forum more often. I ASPIRE to drive... just can't atm; Covid, teens, homeschooling, et al. Been around the industry since 2003; do some 'freelance' related articles and such, on the side.

Love to see you post more; you are an INSPIRATION, to me, and many~!

Ps: Hope that Lyme disease has been resolved; meant to post that earlier but was too busy LMAO... hehehe....

My sister (in FL) has Lupus due to Lyme...and I pray that doesn't be anything at your young age, would occur.

pss: As far as Lease/Op, I'm neither here nor there about it. I know this site is 'opposed' .... me personally? Individual decisions.

Love to see pix of your truck! My FacePalm is in my profile, if you'd rather.
