Is that a serious criteria of yours Uncle Rake? If so, I am curious why? If it's just a personal preference, that's fine, but it sure seems to be an extremely limiting factor in today's marketplace.

It was just a question based on [previously] unconfirmed information, OS. At this point in my career, I’ve only driven for Prime whose fleet is limited to automatics. So my license is limited to automatics, but I wouldn’t consider that a difficult hurdle to overcome, if necessary.

Sorry Uncle Rake, I realized after I asked that question that I was probably misinterpreting something. Just about everybody is going to the auto shift transmissions these days. If there is one thing true about trucking it's that just when you think you have one thing figured out, some other part of the career goes through some changes. I'm glad to hear from you, and glad to see you doing well out here.

I pulled my first solo load on June 23rd and ended up with 43,101 on December 31st. For being greener than grass and being home every weekend I can live with that! I should be on track to make between 85-90 At my year mark.
