Hurry up in wait definitely sucks. So does sleeping on moving truck. Still randomly waking up

Training days are tough. Just remember they come to an end. You have an appointment with destiny at this point. You are getting nearer and nearer to being all alone in that truck. I remember that day still. I was scared, but confident (if that makes sense). Hang in there.

Our daughter was born in 2000, our son in 2004.

Anne, my first daughter was born in 2000 too! Then we had two boys in 2002 and 2005, and then we were blessed with our youngest princess in 2010...

Is your 2000 babygurl off & running, like ours ?!? Working full time, college part time; still considering Air Force as she was in ROTC. Plus, she rides a motorcycle. Never a dull moment. (Not THIS time of year, but still.) Photos in my gallery. LoL.

They sure DO grow too fast!! This career will provide well for your kiddos, trust me on that. As long as you've got the supportive wife person, you'll be all set~!! Teach her & the boys how to do a few things around the home, that the dad person usually does. My 16 y/o son and I take care of much, since daddy's always gone.

Congrats on the awesome family!! That 10 year old is gonna be a tough one to leave, I'm sure.

Be safe;

We are trying to get back to Springfield. Repairs and some other things.. So of course we got stuck in Chicago over night since receiver was snowed in.

Had to wait for them to plow the entrance area to let us turn around.

How's it going Joseph? I'm going to be starting orientation with prime in about 2 weeks. Curious as to how it's going so far? I'm exited, but nervous at the same time.

Sorry I didn't get to replying.. It's been going fast slowly.. Trainers truck has been in the shop slot sadly. Did my first back into a dark narrow dock (maybe a inch or two on either side of the trailer of that) had another prime driver come over and congratulate me.. Could tell we where tnt.

Got home time coming in a week.. After 8 weeks out looking forward to it.

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 14ยข 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.
