Going off of the gps tracker he is currently at the Swift terminal in Manteno, IL. I check the tracker from time to time and it caught my eye. Good luck Zack. Hope you can make it happen this time around. No excuses. Keep us posted.

Zach, what ever DID become ?!?!

Did you go with Swift ????

Kinda be nice to hear an update; many of these fine folks put in a LOT of time talking you up *and down* with your issues. I've always remained neutral; just would love to hear what life passed on to you, (or what you've made of it) at this point.

Thanks, good man.

Hope to hear.

How the hell did you know that?

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

Go to the top, left corner on the home page and click on the three lines.

Choose the GPS Tracker.

Once the map is displayed, use two fingers to expand or zoom in on a particular pin showing any member.

It will show most street or business locations.

OWI:

Operating While Intoxicated

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

Thanks, Bird ! Sure wish I were 'proficient' in the TT Tracker; thinking it's better made for phones than my 'stay at home' laptop!

Great find.

Zach, we still look, ask, care.

I'm hoping you are working this out for yourself, man.

I was gonna keeping quiet for a bit until I was sure things would work out here since I know there are a few members that aren't to fond of me and would love a good "I told you so" if things didn't work out here at SWIFT, and after the crap I pulled at Western I don't blame them. Hopefully I've learned from my mistakes and can make a hell of a driver.

Zack.... nobody is here waiting to give you a good “I told you so”. We want to see you succeed. See you enjoy this career as much as we do. Otherwise this thread wouldn’t of gotten as many replies as it has. Same as your other threads. You got advice that wasn’t sugar coated. You have got to get your self confidence up. What you should of did was came back and said “Hey guys, I’m back!. Given another chance at Swift, going to knock it out of the park and show you all what I’m made off!!!!!”

Verses “wasn’t going to post until I knew for sure things would work out” Come Man!! Here is your chance. And already your 2nd chance. You gotta make this one happen if you want to be a truck driver. No turning back now. No co driver to put blame on.

Zach, Good Deal. I was listening to a podcast last night on my way back from the UP to the terminal to end my week. It was Digging Deeper with Robert Plant. Someone asked him the 'best piece of advice' he had ever gotten. It resonated with me, and I think many on here. He said simply "Mean It". I never gave it much thought, but if we all lived our lives that way, and made our way through our careers that way, I think the world would be a much better place. So, Zach, Good on ya' for getting back into the saddle. And Mean It. Keep us posted as you have time.

Bird one is absolutely right. There isn't anyone here who is gonna come back and do the I told you so thing. We are all drivers or potential drivers, except momcat but she's kind of special lol. Some people have different ways of putting things and we all know how well text conveys feelings. I mean hell I know I've had my disagreements with everyone one here at one time or another. But we are all here because we are in agreement that trucking isn't a bad career and we want to help anyone we can get into it and be successful. We have to be the positive to counter the negatives you see all over the place from the people who aren't successful.

I really hope you do well there and that you find your place at swift.

Looks like things might not work out, I had to go out for 200 hours with a trainer that has a very short fuse. I've been biting my tongue and being respectful and trying to get through my hours but we had a small altercation that might be getting me kicked off the truck. Hopefully it's just empty threats but if worse comes to worse Western Express has been blowing up my phone trying to get me to come back. I just hope this guy dosent decide to leave me in the middle of nowhere
