Yesterday was test day...... First time pass!!!!

Next step is to head home to get my physical CDL , then on the road team driving with my trainer for 30k miles.

He had to get some work done on the truck, so it's in the shop, but we should be heading out tomorrow morning towards home.

I am grateful for the wonderful training team here at Springfield. They have, and continue to, provide me with the tools and guidance to make this journey possible.

It has been a journey, and it's far from over, but I'm convinced I made an excellent choice in careers as well as the company to help get me there

And thank you all for all your encouragement and for following me along as I take this journey

Congratulations, I will be starting with Wilson soon. Please keep on posting your journey.

Feels like forever since I update you all Been going strong After going back to Florida for my physical CDL , we took a load from there to MI, then from there to CA, CA to UT, deadheaded to ID. Now headed to TN.

My HOS ran out yesterday, so resetting in WY.

Still with the same trainer as my D-Seat (permit) training.

I'm still loving it. My backing has gotten a lot better, still room for improvement, but I'm confident I can put the trailer where I need it, just might take me a couple tries lol

The best part for me is the traveling, seeing the country, seeing the different landscapes and regions I've never been to before.

I'll try to keep you all updated

Safe travels everyone
