And submitted several Apps today. MAY trucking took the hook and I am moving forward with them. Lord willing I will start mid Aprilish after background checks, studying for the drug test etc etc.

So May trucking has an 8 day orientation and the puts you on the road. They also have a good reputation for working with new drivers. Please fingers crossed, ive actually wanted to work with May as they are only an hour away from my home and would work out the best for me

BMI:

Body mass index (BMI)

BMI is a formula that uses weight and height to estimate body fat. For most people, BMI provides a reasonable estimate of body fat. The BMI's biggest weakness is that it doesn't consider individual factors such as bone or muscle mass. BMI may:

  • Underestimate body fat for older adults or other people with low muscle mass
  • Overestimate body fat for people who are very muscular and physically fit

It's quite common, especially for men, to fall into the "overweight" category if you happen to be stronger than average. If you're pretty strong but in good shape then pay no attention.

EPU:

Electric Auxiliary Power Units

Electric APUs have started gaining acceptance. These electric APUs use battery packs instead of the diesel engine on traditional APUs as a source of power. The APU's battery pack is charged when the truck is in motion. When the truck is idle, the stored energy in the battery pack is then used to power an air conditioner, heater, and other devices

That's great new Moe! I am sure you've got what it takes. You got off to a rough start, but that's okay. A lot of us had rough starts, myself included in that group. Sometimes a rough start helps you get your head on straight so that you know what kind of commitment you need to put in. Go get 'em Moe! good-luck.gif

Don't be shy about bringing your concerns to us. You are going to hit some issues I'm sure. There's not a thing out here that you will encounter that someone here hasn't had to deal with in some form or another. We are always glad to lend a hand when you need it.

Background check stuff submitted today with the awesome intake gal I spoke to, should he another 3 to 5 days or so then pending review by the various poobahs and safety folks, I will then set up orientation time.

In the meantime I'm catching up on life and TV show series while my sub is good.

How is everyone's day today? I saw someone got the cops called on them by some old ladies, cant take you guys anywhere i swear,I leave you alone for a minute and there's trouble lol.

I'll keep in touch and start an orientation post when the time is right.

Moe, you are a riot !! I say that in a GOOD way.

I, for one, had a great day .... picking up DEBRIS in the yard w/ my son & my doggo, for the 4th day in a row. Put sticks in a burn pile, dog removes said sticks. LoL. Seriously, you sound so HAPPY to be back in the saddle, or on the WAY to one. Keep with it, or I'll drag you out of the shadows AGAIN, ya know!

I personally don't know much about May Trucking, but sure haven't heard anything BAD, which is a GOOD thing, in this inudustry, for sure!

Keep us posted, good sir.
