I put my 2 week notice in at the county job I had. My recruiter and I spent 2 weeks trying to find a rental car. No luck. I rented the smallest uhaul box truck. I drove from Laurens SC to Joplin MO in 2 days. When you get in Joplin Thursday afternoon they put you in the La Quinta. Friday morning you go to the main headquarters to fill out paperwork and get ready to leave for the bus to Crowder College in Neosho. My class was lucky that we got an apartment to stay in. Bring something small to do. That's about it right now. Training start Monday the 19th.

Good luck with your training today! Wild that you couldn't get a rental car and needed to drive a UHaul instead! Getting some practice in on a truck. ;-)

THURSDAY morning was finishing computer training and practicing parallel parking.

Thursday afternoon we went out on the road. That was cool. Friday morning we tested parallel parking, coupling system pre trip. The afternoon was spent practicing lane change maneuver. Going out on the road again. The weekend will be spent relaxing and studying in cab pre trip. Next week we'll test lane change maneuver, more road time and in cab pre trip test.
