KID,

I had the pleasure of meeting Big Scott last month while the wife and I were Rving in Wytheville, Va. You couldn't ask for a better trainer from CFI even if you tried. He is very personable, a true advocate for CFI and will show you the right way to do things for CFI. I have been retired for 10 years now but if I was to go back to driving I would be serious about CFI and Big Scott would be my finisher of choice. Good luck to you.

Thanks Navy! Sadly it was a pretty bad day, today was not my day and my manuvers seemed to be lacking bad for some reason today.

Well it's a Monday.

That's ok. The load I'm delivering tomorrow, when I picked it up, I had the hardest time backing into the spot to drop my empty.

I HATE truck dynasty white manual trucks, they don't operate worth a **** and I can't ever seem to get them in any manuver.

If I remember correctly CFI only wants us on the 2020 automatics, not a 2016 or 2017 international manual.
