Hey Tim! Yes, I'm following along with interest, and I'm others are too. I'm on track to start with Wilson in December. Good to hear an update, and interesting to get some of the details of how your training has progressed. I'm glad the backing has been coming along. How many miles towards the 30K are you now?

Not sure exactly but it looks like we're doing over 5000 a week so I think I should be close to halfway there. Jimmy thinks I should be on my solo week (the last week of training where I'll do a local Kraft account by myself) the 2nd week of December and be on my own by Dec 17. I plan to take off the week of Christmas. I'll probably see you at the hotel or the training office Matt!

Tim, I meant to mention that if all goes to plan, I should be there the week of December 13. I hope to cross paths!

Sounds good Matt!! I plan to be in Springfield that week! They could also have me in DFW but if not I'll look for you at the office. 👍👍

Still following here, too. Lots of folks are reading your entries even if they don't comment, so keep 'em coming.

That's good to know!! Thx Packrat!! This site has really helped me so it's good to know my updates could help someone else find a good career in trucking and/or at Wilson. It really does seem like a good company and they prioritize safety.

Thx Anne!! Good to know someone is interested in keeping up with how I'm doing!! I'm excited! It really is a fun career so far. I'm sure it can be stressful but I've had stressful jobs in the past and this seems to be more tolerable/enjoyable (pharmacy tech, web programmer, correctional officer)(I know... I've worn a lot of hats 🤣🤣)

Being a C/O was similar .. right ?!?!? Fun & frazzling, all at once! Hahaha! I only know from the 'jump seat' of a truck, mostly...tbh! Our cousin that lives behind us is a C/O at MANCI . . . (i HEAR stuff... i'd rather not.. tbh!)

Pharmacy tech's get robbed more'n C/O's this day & age, LoL !! My guy was IT thru & thru.. and got rif'd in 2000'ish. . . never looked back since he got his 'real' CDL in 2003. Tried STNA'ing in between, and owned a dump truck/refuse route all during. Fell under the radar, haha!

Oh yeah!!! Dang me.......Just checking BACK.. SINCE YOU HAVEN'T, haha!

And???

I wait patiently ... for a week, most'ish, haha!!

Hope all is WELL!!

I never get notifications when I get new comments... its weird but yes things are going great! We are in south Texas for the week where my trainer lives. If I stayed with him I can still get paid for the week (so I'm not on hometime technically). I found out once we hit the road next week I'll only have 9400 miles to go! We may run into some pockets of snow though so PRAYERS APPRECIATED!!

Yes Anne being a CO could be a little touch-and-go at times but overall we were in charge and kept order. It was a lot of barking orders and making sure nobody was screwing around when I ran the kitchen. They would rob us blind if I didn't!

I'll try to post some pictures from the road so far if I can figure out how to post em...

After 15 years on the road I wanted to help people understand the trucking industry and everything that came with the career and lifestyle of an over the road trucker. We'll help you make the right choices and prepare for a great start to your trucking career.
