As you guys know I'll be heading to Roadmaster August 17th. I'm completely nervous & excited all at the same time!! Since my time at Titan didn't go as planned. I will start another Milestone journey post for Roadmaster.

Semi-update On 8/11/20 @ 4:57PM Took drug test 2 weeks ago,passed. Got an acceptance letter 2 days after. Now schedule yo start on the 17th of August. As everyone knows,RM has an all automatic fleet. Had to check in with May trucking to make sure I'm good to go with them even if I'll have a restriction on cdl. Spoke to my recruiter at May and she saids all their fleets are automatic so I am good to go. She also wants me to call her on the week that I start school. Again I'm super excited to start my trucking journey.

Just stopping by to say 'Howdy,' @Bubbles . . . how goes it on the homefront?

I'm thinking that for this next upcoming year, it would do you well to just work at your regular job (whatever that is; if you posted it, I'm lame and missed it, HAHA... <<< I need the HaHa education, LMAO~!) .. .and READ the forum, and trucking online publications! NOT TTR, no ma'am. Stuff like CDL life dot com, Truck paper, Overdrive and Land Line, and The Trucker dot com. << I do this on a daily, and interview and APPRISE my husband, to keep up w/the industry, my OWN self, from the helm at home!

Wish you well; knowing you made the best decision, m'lady~!!

Don't be a stranger; jump into the fray!

Always,

Anne :)
